Oral Health In Childhood Has A Lifelong Impact

kids dentist Alexandria

Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is critical, which is why we like to see our youngest patients for regular checkups at the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria.

Tooth decay and gum disease can restrict speech development and make it more difficult to eat. Unhealthy teeth lower a child’s self-confidence. This, in turn, puts mental health at risk. Mouth pain can also impact school performance.

Maintaining oral health in childhood is essential for health and happiness.

The Health Benefits Continue Into Adulthood

When your son or daughter moves into adulthood, dental health should still be a priority.

Poor dental health increases the risk of multiple diseases:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Blood Cancers
  • Lung Cancer

At the Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, we know that a lifetime of good dental health begins during childhood, and offer pediatric dentistry. Other services include special needs dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
