Do You Need to Worry About Gingivitis in Kids?
Age does not matter when it comes to gum disease; it can affect anyone at any age. If your child has gums that bleed easily or gums that have started to recede, then you need to contact us as soon as possible, and we can evaluate if they are dealing with childhood gingivitis.

Dangers of Chronic Gingivitis in Children

If children do not come in and see us regularly, they can develop the same problems with gum disease as adults. This can leave them with sores in their mouths and even pain between brushing. Their gums can be puffy and painful, and they may even start to struggle with sensitive teeth. This often comes as a result of receding gums, which may be hard to notice if they are not coming in for regular checkups and exams.

Causes of Gum Disease in Kids

Gum disease in children can be caused by many sources. Most kids are still developing good oral hygiene practices, which leaves their mouths more susceptible to dental health issues. Plus, hormonal changes can also lead to changes in dental health.

Call on the experienced professionals here in our office if you are worried that your child may have signs of gingivitis. We want to help see your child with the best oral health possible, just like you do.

It Is Worth Trying to Stop Poor Dental Habits Early
It may be frustrating and take a long time, but breaking your child of poor dental habits early is worth the time that you have to put into it. The earlier you are able to stop things like nail-biting or chewing on non-food items like toys or ice, the healthier your child's mouth has the potential to be. These habits not only can impact the teeth your child currently has, but they can also harm the forming permanent teeth below them. Even if it takes you a year of repeating the same rules, keep doing it. Your child's future teeth will thank you for all that effort!

Preventing Infection After Dental Work
Dental infections can cause a lot of trouble if left untreated for too long, but there are many things that can be done to help prevent infections in and around your mouth. We will give you post-procedure instructions after any dental work to help promote the best healing possible, so it is important that you follow these instructions closely. These instructions can include information on brushing, flossing, salt water rinses, foods you can eat, medication, and more.

If you recently had dental work done, you still need to keep your teeth and gums clean but be sure to follow post-procedure instructions you received to avoid problems while healing. If you have questions or aren't sure things are healing properly, contact our office as soon as possible, and we can help you know the best way to take care of your smile.

Our treatment philosophy centers around each child's individual needs and concerns to create a gentle and caring approach that works for that child. We firmly believe that a positive, enjoyable dental experience will help children build confidence and knowledge that will create a lifetime of great dental health.
