Yuma Family Dentist In Yuma Wants You To Be Healthy And Happy

Yuma Family Dentist in Yuma Cares For Teeth Dentists in Yuma are dedicated to your oral health and care about the condition of your teeth. At Yuma Family Dentist we recognize that your teeth help you both eat and speak. You use your teeth to tear, scrape, and chew food, as well as to form words with your tongue.

Healthy teeth and gums are an essential component of complete physical and mental health. An unhealthy smile can erode confidence, cause embarrassment, and make eating and speaking difficult. The team of dental professionals at Yuma Family Dentist in Yuma, AZ, wants to help keep your mouth and teeth healthy so that they don’t adversely affect your strength in any way.

We humans have two sets of teeth in our lifetime. The first set are your ‘primary teeth’, which many people around Yuma often call ‘baby teeth’. Baby teeth typically start to come in at about 6 months old. An average healthy mouth for a Yuma resident has a total of 20 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 Yuma residents, but every person 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’.

Many adults in the city of Yuma have their wisdom teeth pulled out because these teeth can be problematic to your oral health, such as crowding a mouth. Other adults in the Yuma keep these teeth because they are not causing problems. If you are concerned about the state of your wisdom teeth you can visit our local Yuma office and we can help you make this vital decision.

Caring for all of your teeth – whether you are young and have 20 primary teeth or are an adult and have 28 to 32 permanent teeth – is necessary for total strength. Let your Yuma dentist help keep you healthy and happy.
