42% of Children Have Had Cavities in their Primary Teeth

42% of children age 2–11 have had cavities in their primary teeth. And sadly, 23% of them have untreated cavities.


Over 86% of children will have tooth decay in at least one tooth by age 17. Although tooth decay in children declined from the 70s to the mid-90s, it is now on the rise again, and in even younger children. This is likely due to increased sugar consumption — not just in candy, soda, and sweets but also in “energy” or “sports” drinks, which have tons of sugar. Water is always the best choice!


If only we had a way to help improve these statistics! Oh wait, we do!

Supervise young children while they brush and floss in order to teach them good dental hygiene and help prevent tooth decay. If kids need extra help (or think they’re fun), electric toothbrushes contribute to longer, more thorough brushing. Also, consider sealants for your child’s molars — they reduce the risk of cavities by 80%.
