Making sure your child is properly brushing and flossing can be a challenge, but it’s well worth the effort. The risks of poor oral health aren’t limited to cavities. When plaque is not adequately removed from the gumline, bacterial growth can lead to gum disease, also called periodontal disease.

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, approximately 54,000 people will be diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer this year. Roughly one person per hour will die from oral cancer.

People who smoke are at a higher risk of developing oral cancer, gum problems and complications after tooth extractions and gum and oral surgery. Smokers have a lowered resistance to infections and have impaired healing.
