Tooth Decay Is On The Rise In Preschoolers

I found an article about tooth decay in preschoolers here.

On the surface, this premise sounds like this is a 'new' phenomenon.  But, I suspect that this has been the case for quite a long time.   Juices and milk are full of sugars and we all know that sugar will feed tooth decay causing bacteria.

These bacteria then produce acidic waste byproducts.  These acids are what cause the creation of cavities.   More sugar leads to more bacterial growth and so forth and so on.

A Tip

Here is an idea.  Try getting xylitol tooth gel and rubbing it on the children's teeth at night.  Xylitol is also a sugar, but it is one that the bacteria cannot use.  They end up starving and dying.  These gels can sometimes be found in health food stores.   Read the label directions carefully before use.

Toothy Decay Problem

It's not a surprise that tooth problems are 'on the rise'.  They have been rampant' for a long time and not just in children either.  Consider how large the dental health industry is.   That should tell you all you need to know.

Tooth decay and other dental health problems occur frequently.  People are always being treated for them.   The treatment of dental disease must be a multi-billion dollar industry.   I guess that it could possibly be a trillion dollar industry.

It is frightening when you think about it.   Focusing on prevention is the best way to try and protect yourself and your family.  Knowledge is power.

This is my dental health prevention message for the day!
