Oral Health In Childhood Has A Lifelong Impact

Published on February 28, 2020

pediatric dentist Tampa

Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is critical while they are young.

Tooth decay and gum disease can restrict speech development. It can make it more difficult for the child to eat healthy food. Unhealthy teeth reduce a child’s self-confidence. This, in turn, puts mental health at risk. Mouth pain can also affect school performance.

Maintaining oral health in childhood is essential for health and well-being.

The Health Benefits Continue Into Adulthood

When your youngster moves into adulthood, oral health should still be a priority.

You may be surprised that poor oral hygiene increases the risk of numerous diseases:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Blood Cancers
  • Lung Cancer

At Kernagis Dental Excellence, we help children and adolescents maintain healthy teeth and gums. We also detect problems in the early stages when they are easier (and less expensive) to repair.

Lifelong Oral Health Starts Early

Toddlers should see a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears. This is much earlier than many parents realize. Put dental appointments on your to-do list along with well-child check-ups and immunizations.

You might think you know the basics of daily dental hygiene for children, but it is a good idea to get a refresher course from one of our expert, child-friendly hygienists.

We can also talk about sealants, bite issues, fluoride supplements, thumb sucking, and orthodontia. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
