Do you think that is their any possibility of cavities in children’s teeth?
In fact, cavities are more common symptoms than any other chronic illness children could have. Studies suggest that approx 40% of children show the symptoms of tooth decay, when they about to join kindergarten. Cavities occur due to the modern diet. As, nowadays food and beverages with full of ferment-able carbohydrate, which are ideal for bacteria growth and specially foods with high sugar content, as children love to have candies all the time and chocolates as well.

As,bacteria grow in a child’s mouth they produce acids, which attacks tooth enamel (which acts a protective shield for teeth).

Weak foundation means that roots may expose on early stages, which increases the risk of decay in children’s teeth.
