How Tooth Decay and Cavities Affect Your Child's Health
Tooth decay and cavity formation is not exactly a localized phenomenon and can have far-reaching consequences for the health and well-being of your child. Poor oral hygiene is usually the chief reason for cavity formation.
If left untreated, it can cause painful sensations in their teeth and adversely impact their nutrition intake, thereby making your child frail. It can also leave them emotionally drained.
Excessive consumption of sugary drinks can increase the chances of acid attacks that normally last for 20 minutes and deplete the enamel of their teeth. This can lead to tremendous pain. We have the right knowledge and technology that will minimize the chances of cavity formation on your child's teeth.
