Good afternoon,

Today we are continuing our topic of gum disease and talking about gum disease in children. Yes, children too can sometimes get gum disease! (It's not just something that can happen to adults!) Take a look at the excerpt from the American Academy of Periodontology on gum disease and children. Then follow the link below for signs of the disease and advice for parents!

Chronic gingivitis. aggressive periodontitis and generalized aggressive periodontitis are types of gum disease in children.

Chronic gingivitis is common in children. It usually causes gum tissue to swell, turn red and bleed easily. Gingivitis is both preventable and treatable with a regular routine of brushing, flossing and professional dental care. However, left untreated, it can eventually advance to more serious forms of periodontal disease.

Aggressive periodontitis can affect young people who are otherwise healthy. Localized aggressive periodontitis is found in teenagers and young adults and mainly affects the first molars and incisors. It is characterized by the severe loss of alveolar bone, and ironically, patients generally form very little dental plaque or calculus.

Generalized aggressive periodontitis may begin around puberty and involve the entire mouth. It is marked by inflammation of the gums and heavy accumulations of plaque and calculus. Eventually it can cause the teeth to become loose.
