Discover the Danger of Gum Disease in Children


Did you know that children and teens are also at risk for developing gum disease and periodontal disease? Many parents are unaware of these dental hazards and need to know which factors could affect their child’s dental health.

Genetics are a Giveaway

Genes are responsible for a large part of dental health. Research shows that children whose parents are at high risk for periodontal disease also have a higher chance of developing this problem themselves. When these conditions are common in a family, parents need to do everything possible to prevent gum disease in children. Make sure that your child is practicing proper dental hygiene at home and seek out affordable dental care on a regular basis.

Distressing Dental Hygiene

A bad oral hygiene routine can be bad news for teeth. In children, poor dental hygiene habits are often the cause of gum disease. If they don’t receive treatment, then the problem can progress from the gums to the bones of the teeth, which is called periodontal disease. The best way to prevent gum disease in children is by teaching them good dental habits from an early age. In addition, parents need to also practice good dental hygiene since kids learn from their example.

Hormonal Changes Cause Concern

According to research, a child’s risk of periodontal disease rises as they become teenagers. Their fluctuating hormones can cause their gums to become more sensitive and easily inflamed by plaque. Since teens are prone to these problems, they must have a good dental hygiene routine and regularly see a dentist to get the affordable dental care they need.
