A gum disease is an inflammation of bone and tissues that support’s your child’s teeth.
It is also popular as periodontal disease. If a gum disease doesn’t receive appropriate medical attention, your child’s teeth may become loose and fall out eventually.
So check out with a dentist as soon as you discover your child suffering from a gum disease.
Gum disease in kids occurs due to the buildup of plaque. Plaque is a sticky, invisible layer of germs that develop on your child’s gums and teeth naturally.
Plaque possesses bacteria producing toxins, which irritate, harm, and damage his gums. Every day hundreds of bacteria thrive in his mouth. So brushing and flossing daily and visiting the dentist regularly is important to maintain good oral health.
