Few children getting recommended dental care before age 1
Few children getting recommended dental care before age 1 (May 8, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Toronto - Very few children get recommended dental care before the age of 1, according to a report published in Pediatrics. Researchers studied over 2,500 children around the age of 4 who had been followed since birth. Of these children, nearly 39% had never been to the dentist. Those who had not been to the dentist were more likely to have younger age, lower family income, longer use of a bottle, and a higher intake of sugar sweetened drinks. For every one cup increase in the amount of sweetened drinks drank daily, likelihood of never having gone to the dentists increased by 20%.
