Dentists are treating more kids – and even preschoolers – for dental decay. The numbers are extensive. Sometimes smal children are coming into dentist offices with multiple cavities. Some have 6 to 10 cavities or more.
Some of the reasons for the rise in preschool tooth decay may include:
- too much snacking
- too much juice or sweet drinks
- choosing bottled water over fluoridated tap water for children
- waiting too long to bring children to a dentist
