Oral Health In Childhood Has A Lifelong Impact

May 3, 2019

Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is critical while they are young. The team at The Richardson Dentist can help.

Tooth decay and gum disease can hinder 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 influence school performance.

Maintaining dental health in childhood is essential for a high quality of life.

The Health Benefits Continue Into Adulthood

When your son or daughter grows 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 The Richardson Dentist, 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.

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

At The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX, the dental health of your entire family matters. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
