Gum Disease Examinations:
Many people believe periodontal disease is an adult problem, but studies indicate
it is nearly a universal problem among children. It can cause gum tissue to swell,
turn red and bleed easily.
Localized aggressive periodontitis can affect young healthy children. It 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
Early diagnosis is important for successful treatment of periodontal diseases. Moreover,
it is important that children receive a periodontal examination as part of their
routine dental visits.
