Oral health & learning difficulties
- When children's teeth hurt, it can affect their
concentration and ability to learn. Regular visits to a pediatric
dentist can help prevent cavities and other oral diseases. Oral health
is an important part of children's overall health.
- Dental disease in children is preventable, but once it sets in
the disease can affect children's physical development in the form of
reduced body weight and interfere with growth. It can also affect
children's school attendance and school success.
