Early diagnosis is important for successful treatment of periodontal diseases. Therefore, it is important that children receive a periodontal examination as part of routine dental visits. You should know that an advanced form of periodontal disease may be an early sign that your child is a systemic disease.
Consideration should be given a general medical evaluation for children with severe periodontitis, especially if it appears resistant to therapy.
Many medications can cause dry mouth or create other threats to oral health. Be sure to tell your dental professional about all other medicines that family members are taking.
