Cavities, also known as caries or tooth decay, are childhood’s most common chronic disease, yet cavities are preventable. Untreated cavities can cause pain and infections, leading to problems eating, speaking, and learning. Did you know that more than 1 in 5 children aged 2 to 5 years have at least one cavity in their baby teeth. However, cavities are preventable.

  • Ensure to wipe your baby’s gums after each meal.
  • Avoid putting babies to bed with a bottle.
  • Brush your child’s teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Limit drinks and food with added sugars for children.
  • Schedule your child’s first dental visit by their first birthday or after their first tooth appears.

Impeccable Smiles recommends dental sealants, that is a thin coating painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Sealants protect chewing surfaces from cavities by covering them with a protective shield that blocks out germs and food. Sealants protect against 80% of cavities for two years and continue to protect against 50% for up to 4 years.

Call us at (813) 365-3552 to schedule your child’s dental check-up today!

What is Gum Disease?

Gum or periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues and bone-supporting teeth.

Does Gum Disease affect your Total Body Health?

Yes! There are at least 12 illnesses suggested between gum disease and other illnesses and conditions.

85% of US adults suffer from some degree of gum disease, making it one of the most common diseases in America – more common than cancer, diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease.

Many people aren’t aware of the connection between gum disease and other illnesses. Learning about the connection between gum disease and other diseases and the overall importance of oral health is critical to improving gums and general health.

The top illnesses that are affected by gum disease are:

  • Heart Disease
