Top 3 Roots of Gum Disease in Children

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

Many parents assume that cavities are their child’s main dental concern. That’s why they’re surprised to learn that both children and teens can also develop gum disease or the more advanced stage called periodontal disease. Discover whether your child is at risk for these dental dangers.

Deficient Dental Hygiene

Bad dental hygiene is never good 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. Since children often learn by following their parent’s habits, it is important to make affordable dental care a family affair.

Genetics are Prophetic

Genetics play a major role in a child’s dental health. Research shows that children whose parents are at high risk for periodontal disease also have a higher chance of developing this problem. If these conditions run in the family, it’s important to be proactive to reduce the risk of 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.

Hormonal Troubles in Teens

Did you know that the risk of periodontal disease increases as kids approach their teen years? See, their dental health is hindered by their hormones, with sudden hormonal changes causing 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.
