Dental Decay Issues Don’t End In The Mouth

Did you know that more children suffer from early childhood caries (ECC) than any other disease? Yes, chronic tooth decay is a disease! Many people do not appreciate the full impact tooth decay has on young children, and their future.

Children are often inconsistent with their oral care. What’s more, seemingly healthy food choices, like fruit juice, are high in sugar. Such foods contribute to tooth decay. A qualified dentist can help you identify factors contributing to ECC and effectively prevent or treat the condition. Doing so can help prevent gum disease as well as more serious, so called systemic issues, such as diabetes and allergic rhinitis, and even cardiovascular disease in later life.

We are committed to helping patients of all ages understand the ‘oral-systemic link,’ where infections can enter the body through the digestive system or through the bloodstream.
