Pediatric Periodontitis

Parents, if your kids complain, or you see any of these signs:

  • red bleeding gums
  • swollen gums
  • bad breath
  • loose permanent (or sometimes called adult) teeth
  • gum infection
  • bone loss around teeth
  • receding gums around teeth

You need to see a gum specialist. These are all signs and symptoms of gum disease which is an infection in their mouth. This infection can lead to bone loss around teeth, and if left untreated can cause the teeth to become loose and fall out. Gum disease has a genetic component, so parents, if you had gum disease and lost your teeth due to bone loss, chances are your kids may suffer from the same problem. The KEY is to treat gum disease early! We specialize in treating gum disease and we want to help keep your kids mouth’s healthy.
