The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that dental decay is the most prevalent infectious disease in our nation’s children. By the age of three, 5-10% of U.S. children have oral health issues; and by the age of five, about 60% of kids will have had at least one cavity. Children with oral health issues are more likely to experience oral pain, miss school, and perform poorly academically.
In this week’s episode of the Baby Your Baby Podcast, Holly Menino heads up to Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital to talk with Dr. Hans Reinemer, DMD, Residency Program Director for Pediatric Dentistry. They discuss the importance of baby teeth and explain why mom’s oral health is extremely important, not just for her own teeth, but to the health of her child’s mouth as well.
