During puberty, an increased level of hormones causes increased blood circulation to the gums, increasing the gum’s sensitivity, and leading to a greater reaction to irritation, including food particles and plaque. Therefore, it is very important for your teen to follow a good oral hygiene regimen, including regular brushing and flossing, and routine dental visits.
