3 Dental Problems You Should Address Before You’re 30

Scared Of The DentistDental problems can arise anytime and at any age, but there are some dental issues that you should address as soon as you notice them. Ideally, they should be dealt with before you’re 30. Here are some them.

Tooth loss.

Diet, lifestyle, poor dental habits, and trauma are just some of the reasons why people lose a tooth or two. While you can always get dental implants, it may be better to try to save the tooth rather than have it removed. Your damaged tooth might be improved by porcelain veneers.

Teeth misalignment.

Misaligned teeth can be cute when you’re young, but not when you’re in your teens and 20s. In fact, if you still have misaligned teeth by the time you’re 30, what have you been doing all this time? Are you delaying getting braces because of a fear of being ridiculed? It will just become worse if you leave the problem unaddressed.  Don’t avoid dental treatment, even if you think you will need braces. If you don’t want traditional braces, you can choose invisible ones, such as Invisalign.

Discoloured teeth.

Teeth discolouration can have many root causes, but most of them are due to your diet and lifestyle. Smoking is notorious for damaging the natural colour of your teeth. If you’re a smoker, it’s advisable to stop, or at least limit, your cigarette-smoking habit. There are also many teeth-staining foods and beverages such as tea, coffee, and wine. While there are some over-the-counter and do-it-yourself solutions, it’s highly advisable to go to professionals for teeth whitening treatments.

Be Proactive with Dental Care

You only get one set of permanent teeth, so make sure you’re proactive in taking care of them and dealing with dental issues before they become bigger problems. Fix these dental dilemmas as soon you find them and especially before you hit your 30s.
