More Than Just Teeth

The dental health of their children should be among the top priorities of all parents, just as dental health in all our young patients is our top priority at Summer Kids Dental in Las Vegas.


But many parents don’t realize that good dental health means a lot more than just clean teeth and healthy gums.

We are not trying to frighten anyone. But children who don’t brush and floss their teeth on a regular basis are at risk of developing more than just cavities; they are at greater risk of serious, even life-threatening conditions.

Research from Harvard University and Imperial College London suggests children with poor oral hygiene are likely to develop gingivitis, which is early-stage gum disease. This, in turn, can put them at an increased risk of several types of the following:

  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Cancer

Let us reiterate, we are not trying to frighten anyone. We think all of this further illustrates the importance of dental health, and the idea that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. The link between dental health and overall health is well-established.

At Summer Kids Dental in Las Vegas, we are convinced that a healthy smile means a healthy body and mind. It is critical to establish a daily brushing and flossing routine early in life, and to bring your youngster in for regular cleanings and checkups. We offer a full range of pediatric dentistry and early dental care. Call to schedule an appointment today!
