Did you know that asthma, obesity,learning disabilities, ADHD, allergies–they’re all chronic diseases and conditions that are prevalent today. But one chronic childhood disease tops them all –is dental caries.
Dental caries is an infection that results in a tooth cavity if left untreated. Such oral health problems can lead to difficulty eating,speaking and paying attention
at school, according to the Catalyst Institute, a group that aims to improve the quality of oral health care.
Check-ups every six months, brushing, flossing, fluoride and dental sealants are still the best way to prevent dental caries.
