Can Gum Disease Affect Infants?

While damaged teeth and gum disease are often associated with adults, the fact of the matter is that infants are also at risk if not cared for properly. What are some key symptoms and when should you see a dentist?

– Red and inflamed gums could indicate an issue.

– Gums that bleed when pressed may signal gum disease.

– See your dentist as soon as the first tooth enters (or if you suspect an issue).

“If you’re not cleaning your baby’s mouth regularly, you may see red and swollen gums in your baby’s oral cavity.”
