Baby Dental – What is Periodontal Disease.

Sunday, Apr. 18th 2021 6:31 AM

Periodontal disease (Gum Disease) is a serious infections that, left untreated, may lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Periodontal disease can affect one tooth or many teeth. It begins when the bacteria in plaque causes the gums to become inflamed. If left untreated by a dentist, plaque can spread and grow below the gum line. Toxins produced by the bacteria in plaque irritate the gums. The toxins stimulate a chronic inflammatory response and the tissues and bone that support the teeth are broken down and destroyed.

Friday, Mar. 26th 2021 5:05 AM

Just like health problems like cholesterol and high blood pressures, parents can also pass on bad breath and dental disease. Cavities are not genetic but oral bacteria that causes dental diseases are contagious. Parents that share utensils, drink out of the same cup, kiss or share toothbrushes with children, they can spread bacteria to their children’s mouths. Children can also spread the bacteria among themselves by such actions as mouthing the same toys. Establishing good oral health care habits is very important for you and your family dental care.
