Tooth decay more likely in kids exposed to trauma
from Dr. Bicuspid
Children who grew up with household dysfunction were more likely to have tooth decay in a new study, published in the Journal of Public Health Dentistry on August 28. Also, children who experienced more than four adverse childhood events — such as having divorced parents or witnessing domestic abuse prior to age 18 — were less likely to visit a dentist for preventive care. Researchers conducted a cross‐sectional study using nearly 33,400 respondents from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH).
