Children with Down syndrome have higher risk of periondontal disease

Various periodontal bacteria colonise during early childhood in children with Down syndrome.


Additionally, P. gingivitis increased in Down syndrome children, playing an important role in the onset of periodontal disease, according to a study released in the Journal of Periodontology. Dental professionals should instruct parents of Down syndrome children in proper brushing and flossing techniques and the use of an electric toothbrush, which can be easier for children to use.
