Logo for Why is tooth decay the most prevalent diseases in the community and second most expensive?
Almost all cavities occur where, after every meal or snack, food is left trapped between teeth and inside pits and fissures in grooves on chewing surfaces where the brush, toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum and saliva cannot reach. There has been little improvement in the last 20 years.

This article gave good information on the formation of cavities that was easy to understand. The pictures were great and the lay out of the article was professional in appearance as well.It explained the reason behind fluoride and how it related to decay. Great for patient hand out.
