Dr. Kelly O’Hara, your family dentist for children and teens says:
“Children’s Dentistry is one of the most important fields in medical practice as dental caries in children is considered to be #1 silent disease in children. The main cause of caries in children and teens is access to pop, excessive sugar intake and inability to properly brush and floss (underdeveloped dexterity).
The rise of dental caries, gingivitis, and Periodontal disease have dramatically increased in the last decade in America.
According to research, dental health is directly correlated with overall health. Our mouth is full of good and bad bacteria and its amounts are directly related to overall Inflammation, leading to dental problems and other Inflammatory related conditions.
It is important for children and teens to learn healthy dental habits to prevent dental problems and Inflammation associated with them. I believe in teaching children and teens about healthy dental habits and overall health habits.”
