This message from Pediatraic Dental Center is about dental health and your child’s immune system.
Poor dental health can weaken the immune system. Oral bacteria is linked to a variety of serious health conditions. It also makes it difficult for the body to resist seasonal colds and influenza.
If your child eats a healthy diet, he or she is more likely to have healthy teeth. A child with a healthy smile is more likely to have a strong immune system.
Most dental health problems start with bacteria, which thrive in the mouth. Food debris give it a real jump-start, which is why regular brushing and flossing is so important all all ages.
Without proper dental care, bacteria from the mouth can get into the bloodstream, setting off the body’s immune response. In the short term this is normal and not a problem, but over time can lead to a chain reaction that causes other health problems.
It’s entirely preventable with good dental health care at home, and regular checkups.
At Pediatric Dental Center, we specialize in early dental care and preventative care. We’ve got offices in Burlington, Newport, and Crestview Hills KY. Call us to schedule your child’s next checkup with us today!
