Thesis: *Education of new parents is the best way to reduce the spread of dental caries

Are cavities a common disease?
Cavities is a infectious disease meaning that this is a disorder caused by organisms, for example bacteria is one. An infectious disease can occur in people of all ages as in toddlers all the way to adults. Many experts and doctors that have studied dental caries said you can “catch a cavity” just like you can “catch a cold” said Anahad O’Connor. Also it was said that “Tooth decay is a common disorder, second only to the common cold” said Anahad O’Connor meaning if everyone can contract a cold, you can also contract a tooth decay.The cause of this is not only by food or not brushing right nor flossing but bacteria causes this. People who are infected with cavities have infected saliva which means they are carrying a bacteria that will cling to your teeth and feed on the plaque that you’ve created by eating your last meal, plaque comes from bacteria that creates by eating sugars. Though cavities are usually found in children and young adults, any person can get them.

When it comes to young adults they’re are busy doing their own things and working and going out making them careless about their oral health. Many will not go to the dentist for check ups and if they have cavities going on and do not check up on them that could lead up to serious oral problems. Cavities can lead to many other health problems, many oral problems do come from just cavities that have not been fixed with a filling. The cavities we do get not only come from food but can be transmitted by other people. As a child is developing their teeth it is very important to educate your child in brushing their teeth and keeping them healthy. For cavities being a common disorder this is one main reason why children miss school days because of the aches that come along with it. For the young adults and adults they tend to make appointments because of the aches as well and because parents force the young adults to attend for exams. As for the adults they’re more concern about their health and some just really want perfect teeth. As to tooth decay being common there is a lot to watch out for but that does not mean to not enjoy foods it just means to take care of them after finishing a meal.
