Start kids early on dental health

By Andrea Rose

Most parents know that feeding their children nutritious food leads to better general health, but it also leads to better dental health-and vice versa.

"Diet has a great influence on how much decay kids will have," said Bob Zimmerman, DDS, of Cornerstone Family Dentistry in Waynesboro and Blue Ridge Summit.

February is National Children's Dental Health Month.

Zimmerman said dental health has an effect on general health as well.

"There's been clear correlation between periodontal infection and cardiovascular disease and diabetes," he said. "Gum disease leaves you with a low-grade infection, maybe not enough to give you pain, but it leads to an increase in your white cell count and that affects your ability to control your blood sugar. The white cells in your system also cause more plaque to be formed in your arteries. it's not the same kind of plaque as dental plaque, but the stuff that forms on arteries happens to a greater extent in the presence of a low-grade infection."
