What You Need To Know To Prevent Gum Disease

Keep Your Gums Healthy and Strong!

One of the best ways to ensure your child’s teeth stay healthy and strong is to establish good oral hygiene habits early. In addition to the professional pediatric dental services we offer, you can also prevent gum disease (gingivitis) with a regular routine of brushing and flossing. If left untreated, inflammation can occur, causing the gums and supporting gum structure to deteriorate, and we don’t want that to happen. Now, here’s the good news! Gum disease is not uncommon, and with the right care, gum disease is actually reversible.

Regular visits to the dentist ensure that your child’s teeth not only stay bright and clean but to asses gum health as well. Experts from the American Academy of Periodontology explain that “Gingivitis is both preventable and treatable with a regular routine of brushing, flossing, and professional dental care.” You can access the full article here to learn more information and helpful tips for gum care in children. We want to make sure your child not only has a bright and beautiful smile but a healthy one too.
