Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors NCDHM does a campaign about oral health awareness that reaches millions of families. Although dental caries is almost completely preventable, it is actually one of the most common chronic diseases in kids. Greater than 40 percent of kids that are in between age 2-11, have actually had a tooth cavity in their primary (baby) teeth. As well as greater than two-thirds of adolescence ages 16-19 have had dental cavity on their permanent teeth. Even though overall rates of dental cavities have lessened over last couple of decades, tooth decay has in fact raised in children in preschool in the past few years. "

Good oral hygiene habits, including proper brushing and flossing, and the use of fluoride and sealants can easily aid in maintaining children's teeth healthy and preventing them from developing dental caries", says Dr. Zinati

When necessary, X-rays are required to see just how the teeth are developing as well as to be able to diagnose tooth decay which is not seen visually.
