Dental Problems You May Experience Before Age 30

Your age and dental health are closely related. As you age, your responsibility to take care of your dental health grows immensely, so that you can continue to enjoy a full and healthy smile. By age 30, you and your teeth will have gone through a lot together. Below are some dental problems you may experience before you hit age 30.

Braces:

Around 50 to 70 percent of American kids get braces, usually when they are between 10 and 14 years of age. But, adults are also looking for ways to straighten their teeth. If you are one of those people, Invisalign might be a good option for you to get a beautiful smile. If your teeth are bent or misaligned, they can affect your eating and digestive ability, ability to speak, and appearance. Invisalign is one of the best ways to correct teeth irregularities.

 

Cavities:

You can get cavities at any age. Some people get them as a child, while others get them in their teens. However, most people get at least one cavity by age 30. Cavities occur when your dental enamel or roots are compromised by bacteria in the mouth. Cavities can cause discoloration of teeth (including black and yellow), and can cause pain.

Remember, no matter how religiously you brush your teeth and how much you care for your oral health there is always a chance for cavities to form on your teeth. If you are already 30, and have any unfilled cavities, you should get an appointment with your dentists immediately. If you ignore cavities at early stages, your tooth will continue to decay and you may require more extensive and expensive restorative treatments like a root canal.

 

Wisdom teeth problems:

Wisdom teeth grow in at the very back of your mouth usually between the ages of 17 to 25 years. Almost 85 percent of people require their wisdom teeth removed due to injury, shock on the area adjoining the wisdom teeth, or to prevent the possibility for future problems. Poorly distributed wisdom teeth may injure nearby teeth, nerves and jaws. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should immediately consult with your dentist.

Are you or your children experiencing one or more of the above dental problems? If yes, you should immediately book an appointment with Dana D. Keith, DDS.
