  • 1.8 Billion Spent on Toothpaste While Tooth Decay Rates Continue to Climb

  • Can apples cause tooth decay?

    Researchers concluded that, “ … participants who reported eating apples were 3.7 times more likely to have damage to the dentine layer of tooth below the enamel while participants who consume carbonated drinks such as colas had no additional risk of tooth decay.”  The authors of the study conclude that the reason for the increase of tooth decay is the high acidity levels of the apples, which eroded the dental enamel and caused decay.


  • Topical Fluoride Treatments Given to Children Are Not Safe

    A new report reveals that one town in the UK will soon be administering routine fluoride treatments to children. According to the report, the decision was made by the NHS to have children’s “… teeth painted with fluoride varnish to combat high rates of dental decay.”  The report stated that, “Overall, almost one in three Plymouth children aged five surveyed had suffered from tooth decay.” The NHS hopes to combine fluoride treatments with dental health advice about avoiding sugary foods and improving dental hygiene.

  • Why Are Native American Children Suffering From Tooth Decay?

    A startling report was released earlier this year that showed Native American children in the U.S. and Canada have a higher rate of tooth decay than other children. The researchers compiled data from 2,633 Native American children that were between the ages of two and five. The findings showed that 68 percent of children had cavities, and in some areas, the rate of tooth decay in children was as high as 90 percent. While statements released by physician’s claim this high rate of tooth decay is caused by a lack of proper hygiene and not receiving routine dental care, this is far from the truth.
