These four signs indicate that your child may have periodontal disease:
*Bleeding gums during eating, brushing, or flossing
*Bad breath that is not fixed by brushing, flossing, or use of mouthwash
*Puffy, swollen, red gums
*Receding gums, to the point where you can see the roots of teeth
If any of these occur, don't hesitate to get your child to a dentist.
