Your Temecula Dentist Answers: Age-Related Questions

We know that there is just something about age and your smile that can lead you to feel overly concerned about what you can access (or what you should be doing). You may ask yourself whether you’re too old for something, too young, if you simply missed the boat, etc. The good news is that aside from a patient potentially being a bit too young for something (because smiles develop all the way into young adulthood), age is not usually something you need to fret over. Still don’t think you believe it? Try our Temecula dentist’s Q&A for a bit more convincing.

Questions and Answers

Question: Is there a particular age range that affects candidacy for those looking for dental implants? How young is too young and how old is too old?

Answer: It is possible to be too young, explains your Temecula dentist. We must wait until the jaw has finished developing, which means this may be up through older teen years and early twenties. However, candidacy for adults with fully developed smiles is not influenced by age.

Question: How about cosmetic dentistry? Is it possible that I will come in and you will tell me that I am far past the cut-off age for making my smile look better through cosmetic care?

Answer: Nope! We will never tell you that you have missed the date for addressing smile concerns and attaining a lovely grin.

Question: Who should be seeing you for preventive and restorative care? Is this something that’s more important for one particular age group? Or, does this apply to everyone?

Answer: Everyone should come in to see their Temecula dentist for preventive care. If restorations are necessary, then this applies to all ages, as well.
