Preventing Riverton Pediatric Periodontitis
When your children are getting the care they need through regular visits to the dentist their chances of getting Periodontitis are much lower. However it’s still important to keep an eye out for the disease.
Periodontitis is an advanced gum disease that starts as gingivitis. Gums become infected when they aren’t taken care of properly. When gums are infected, the teeth are at risk of damage and can fall out.
We have helped treat many children for periodontitis and save countless children from pain or long term damage to their smile. Call today if you have any concerns about your child’s oral health.
Can Periodontitis Affect Children?
It is common for children to have gum disease because they are still learning to take care of their teeth and gums properly. But this does not have to be the case with regular supervision.
Taking care of teeth and gums can be a challenge especially for young children but you can help them with daily care. We recommend teaching your child excellent habits early on.
How To Prevent
- Brush your teeth
- Floss daily
- Have their teeth cleaned every 6 months at the dentist
- Use a mouthwash
- Talk to your dentist about other options
Help your child keep their gums healthy! Visit the dentist regularly.
