Did you know that according to the CDC, twenty percent of children between 5 and 11 years old have untreated tooth decay? Or that thirteen percent of kids between 12 and 19 years old have tooth decay as well?
These are only the numbers that go untreated, and they go much higher when treated teeth come into play. Childhood oral hygiene is incredibly important to the success of our youngsters, and even though it’s preventable, tooth decay is five times more common than asthma in children, according to the AAPD.
