Healthy Smile Timeline: Ages 20-40

Family Dentist East Point GA 30344 | Healthy Smile Timeline: Age 20-40

This week (as part of our Healthy Smile Timeline Series) we are going to address some age-specific dental topics for patients ages 20-40.

Remember, even if YOU don’t fall into this particular age range, you certainly know and/or care about someone who does. Pass this post along to extended family members, coworkers and friends! They’ll appreciate it.

Family Dentist East Point GA 30344 | Healthy Smile Timeline: Age 20-40

We don’t want to overwhelm you… So, to help you prioritize, we’ve divided the information into must-do’s, should-do’s and could-do’s.

Must Do's, Ages 20-40:

  • Never allow regular check-ups to slide just because you’re away from your mom’s gentle (or not-so-gentle) reminders about your dental appointments! You may not see the adverse effects of neglect right away—but it’s SO important to catch early signs of gingivitis, micro fractures, and cavities.
  • You may think oral cancer only affects smokers or the elderly, but 20-40 year olds are the fastest growing demographic for oral cancer. Learn more about oral cancer signs and risk factors, and make sure you're regularly screened.

Should Do's, Ages 20-40:

  • Are your wisdom teeth adversely affecting your bite? Will they be a problem in the future, or a risk factor for infections? Most people have their wisdom teeth removed during their late teens or early 20’s. If you haven’t had them removed, be sure to have them checked.
  • Every woman should know that during pregnancy hormonal changes can inflame gums and increase the odds for gingivitis. Gum disease can put women at greater risk for pre-term labor.

Could Do's, Ages 20-40:

  • Your smile is a MAJOR asset as you pursue your career and social life. As you move through this important phase of your independent life, it’s SO important to be confident! Small changes can make a big difference—so if you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, please talk to us about it.

Take Charge Of Your Youthful, Healthy Smile!

NOW is the time to take charge of your own dental care! Be proactive in caring for your healthy smile. Thoughful care now can prevent major problems down the road.

Use These Ideas As A Launchpad...

The must do's, should do's, and could do's above are by no means a comprehensive list of every dental factor to consider between the ages of 20 and 40! But we do hope it gives you some good reminders and a starting point for building your own oral health goals.

Remember to watch for our future posts about each age group!
