Despite advancements in pediatric dentistry, cavities remain a significant problem in children. When left unchecked, cavities can spread, causing extensive damage to your children’s teeth and gums. Even though these baby teeth will eventually fall out, there’s the risk of oral infections and decay impacting permanent teeth underneath. Unhealthy baby teeth can produce unhealthy permanent teeth, ruining your child’s smile at a young age.
Painful oral infections can make life difficult for your child, as he may have trouble eating, speaking, or concentrating in school. Oral infections can also affect your child’s overall health. If bacteria from untreated gum disease spread to your child’s bloodstream, it can impair his heart, kidney, and brain function. These problems can be prevented through early dental care.
Remember that your child’s mouth is constantly changing through his formative years. His/Her teeth and gums are growing and developing, just like their body. By practicing good dental hygiene today, your child is helping to create a healthy, radiant smile for the future.
