Tooth decay (cavities) is one of the most common chronic conditions of childhood in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Untreated tooth decay can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing and learning.
About 20 percent of children between the ages of five and 11 have at least one untreated decayed tooth and about 13 percent of adolescents, between the ages of 12 and 19, have at least one untreated decayed tooth, according to the CDC.
It’s recommended that children visit a dentist every six months for a check-up to prevent cavities and other dental problems, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Preventative measures can be taken to limit cavities, including: brushing teeth with fluoride toothpaste after eating or drinking (but do not brush with fluoride with children younger than two unless instructed by a health professional), scheduling regular dental visits, avoiding frequent snacking/sipping, eating tooth-healthy foods and avoiding certain foods which are less likely to be easily washed away by saliva (milk, ice cream, honey, sugar, soda, dried fruit, cake, cookies, hard candy, dry cereal and chips), according to the Mayo Clinic.
