All parents know that caries should be immediately treated. But it would be better to prevent this disease. To do it, it is necessary to know the main reasons of children?s caries. Pedodontists in Ohio mention the most common causes:
? Frequent consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods, producing low acidity, which leads to tooth decay,
? Frequent bottle feeding in the nighttime can lead to early childhood caries, as secretion of saliva decreases during sleep,
? Previously streptococcus infection of the child significantly increases the risk for the future development of dental caries,
? Low levels of fluoride in the drinking water,
? Poor oral hygiene.
