6 out of 10 kids have tooth decay by age FIVE
According to a new study by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, 6 out of 10 kids have tooth decay by age FIVE. Watch the CBS Chicago video about this study and what you can do at home. Parents are using bottles containing sugars to help their children fall asleep at night. The bacteria in the mouth love this! The primary teeth are the primary victims though, followed by the permanent teeth which strongly influences a person’t first impression of that person for the rest of their life. Other end results of poor pediatric dental care are misaligned teeth which can require braces which are very expensive.
