USA - Children at higher risk of developing cavities not getting needed preventive dental care

A landmark study of more than 97 million dental claims, conducted by Delta Dental Plans Association, found two-thirds of children who are at higher risk of developing cavities aren't getting recommended preventive dental care.
The study determined that twenty-seven percent of children through age 18 are at a higher risk of developing cavities as measured by a history of recent fillings. Of those children:
  • 65% did not receive two fluoride treatments per year.
  • 68% of 6- to 9-year-olds didn't receive sealants on their first permanent molars.
  • 85% of those ages 10 to 14 didn't receive sealants on their second permanent molars.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends children at higher risk of tooth decay receive two fluoride treatments a year as well as sealants on their first and second permanent molars. Such treatments are commonly fully-covered benefits.......

Fluoridation - fluoride treatment - sealants - Instead of poisoning the children and adults why not deal with the cause: too much sugar.
