The importance of good dental health
Dental Health Month. What better time to talk about dental health. Good dental health has an impact on a person’s overall health. Despite advances in dental prevention in the last 50 years, dental cavities is the most common childhood disease in the world. It is five times more common than asthma, four times more common than childhood obesity, and 20 times more common than diabetes. The number one reason children miss school is dental pain! As a pediatric dentist, parents ask why I fill decayed baby teeth.
