Although tooth decay can be prevented, it currently stands as the most common disease among kids and adolescents.
It is four times more prevalent than asthma in young adults between 14 to 17 years of age.
While it is less common in adults, many of them still have untreated tooth decay, as 28% of 35 to 44 year olds and 18% of seniors aged 65 and over are suffering from decayed teeth but receiving no treatment.
Maintaining a good oral hygiene by regularly flossing, brushing, and using mouthrinse can go a long way in preventing tooth decay.
Schedule regular visits to your dentist for oral exams and routine cleanings for an added safety precaution.
