Anchorage Oral Surgeons Explain 3 Dental Milestones Before 30, Anchorage, Alaska

During your lifetime, you’ll experience numerous milestones—and so will your teeth! At Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska in Anchorage, their oral surgeons believe it’s important to remember these events in your dental history. Not only does your history indicate the future of your teeth and gums, but it's also just fun to reminisce about your past experiences and how far you’ve come.

According to these oral surgeons, if you are at least 30 years old, here are some common dental milestones you've probably reached:

  • Your First Cavity: Most likely, your first cavity occurred when you were a child. Due to genetic predisposition, even those who take the best care of their teeth can get a cavity and require a filling. If you suspect you might have developed your first cavity, don't put off visiting your dentist if you want to avoid more serious procedures.

  • Oral SurgeonOrthodontics: Approximately 60% of the American population will wear braces at some point, and typically, people decide to get orthodontics while they’re teenagers. However, it’s never too late to mark this milestone off! More adults are choosing to correct their teeth alignment with products like Invisalign®—no one will even notice you’re wearing the clear retainers.

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal: Most people who have wisdom teeth will need to have them removed because they are impacted or cause alignment or overcrowding problems. If your wisdom teeth are causing problems, schedule an appointment with an oral surgeon to have them removed.

When you need advanced dental care, Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska has the top oral surgeons in Anchorage. To schedule an appointment with their team today, call (907) 561-1430. You can also learn more about dental surgery—including wisdom teeth removal—by visiting them online.
