Teaching Kids to be Healthy

How to Prevent Tooth Decay

Tooth decay occurs as a result of interactions between the bacteria inside your mouth and the food you eat. Over time, these interactions may result in the destruction of your teeth. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tooth decay impacts more children in the United States than any other chronic infectious disease. Fortunately, this oral disease is preventable, which is why teaching kids to be healthy through good oral hygiene practices is absolutely essential.
