Healthy teeth and gums are an important component of complete physical and mental health. An unhealthy smile can erode confidence, cause embarrasment, and make eating and speaking difficult. The team at Designer Smiles in Fargo wants to help keep your mouth and teeth healthy so that they don’t adversely affect your fitness.
We humans have two sets of teeth in our lifetime. The first set are your ‘primary teeth’, which are often called ‘baby teeth’. Baby teeth typically start to come in at about 6 months old. Most kids have twenty primary teeth by about age 5.
Your primary teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth known as ‘permanent teeth’ will grow in. Permanent teeth typically begin to come in around age 6 for most people, but everyone is unique and it could be a little earlier or later. By about age 13 an average healthy mouth should have 28 of the total 32 permanent teeth. The last four permanent teeth may or may not come, but typically come in between the ages of 17 and 21 if they do. Because of the late age that these last teeth come in they are commonly called ‘wisdom teeth’.
Caring for all of your teeth is necessary for total well-being. Let Designer Smiles in Fargo help keep you healthy and happy. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appiontment today!
