New recommendations for pediatric oral health care
from Daily Republic
The American Dental Association is now recommending fluoride toothpaste be used on children's teeth as soon as they emerge. Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. More than 16 million children in the United States alone suffer from untreated tooth decay, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As more and more children develop cavities, new advice is being offered to those who care for young children's emerging and established teeth.
