By the time you hit 30, you and your teeth will have been through a lot together. Here are a few of the milestones to celebrate getting through with your pearly whites:
• Braces: Between 50-70% of American kids wear braces, typically between ages 1014.
However, many adults (even well past 30) still seek ways to straighten their teeth.
Invisalign is a popular choice among adults seeking a straighter smile.
• Cavities: Some people get cavities as a kid or in their teen years, and others don’t get their
first cavity until adulthood. By the time you hit 30, many people have had a least one
cavity. Cavities can happen to even the best brushers, no matter how good you are at
keeping up your oral hygiene routine. If you have any cavities that have not been filled,
visit your dentist as soon as possible! If the tooth decay continues you may need a root
• Wisdom teeth removal: Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of your mouth that
typically come in between ages 1725. Approximately 85% of people need to have their
wisdom teeth removed because they are impacted or are having a negative impact on the
surrounding teeth, the jaw or bite alignment.
If you or your kids are encountering any of these milestones, be sure to book and appointment
