It was one thing to lose that set of baby teeth but, unfortunately, these don’t grow back. (And you don’t look adorable with a gap-toothed smile.) If you feel like you are losing your adult teeth to staining, decay, chipping or brittle aging then it’s time to visit with Drs. Geren and Mady at Mt. Vernon…
More importantly, if you have any dental procedures scheduled before you leave, discuss it with your Mt. Vernon or Alexandria dentist. A large number of dental procedures are actually surgical procedures. This means that your body will need more time to heal than you may realize.
Make sure to tell your Mt. Vernon dentist about any medications that you are taking. If you are using any tobacco products, you should inform your dentist. Your dentist might be able to offer you a program that can help you stop. Let your dentist know if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. If you have any type of eating disorder, you should also discuss this with your dentist. Ditto if you have a special health issue such as a heart condition. Oral health is an integral part of your overall physical health and cannot be isolated.

Wisdom teeth usually come in between ages 16 and 24 for people in the Alexandria community. While not always troublesome, it is important to learn as early as possible whether your wisdom teeth are coming in sideways, or otherwise impacting your other teeth.
