Almost one in two children in Singapore has tooth decay by the time they enter kindergarten.
Tooth decay, formally known as
early childhood caries (ECC), is the most prevalent chronic disease in children. Untreated tooth decay can lead to pain, swelling, affecting growth and development of adult teeth. Unlike other chronic diseases, ECC is preventable.
It is recommended that children go for their first dental visit by one year old. This gives dentists an opportunity to educate parents and caregivers on the risk factors of ECC before ECC happens.
In this month's "Ask The Specialist" forum,
Dr Bien Lai, Head and Consultant of the
Paediatric Dentistry Unit at
National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS), a member of the
SingHealth group, is here to answer your queries about tooth decay in children and infant oral health.
This forum is open from
1 July to 28 July 2020.
