Cavities in toddlers can impact overall health and development because they cause pain, which makes chewing and eating painful.
The risk of cavities in children begins with the eruption of the first primary tooth, which occurs at the age of 6 months.
Cavities in molars are caries areas that progress into holes. Over time, they gradually become large and may reach the tooth pulp.
The risk of cavities in baby teeth starts with the eruption of the first tooth (6 months age). Cavities appear as holes in baby teeth.
Cavities in between teeth, also known as interproximal cavities, are caries areas that develop into holes. Cavities start small and gradually become bigger.
