Worldwide, tooth decay is the tenth most common condition in "baby teeth," as it is estimated to affect more than 600 million children, despite being a preventable problem, warned Fátima Aguilar, of the National School of Higher Studies (ENES) León unit of UNAM.


The prevention of this disease, he explained, requires simple actions such as cleaning, proper use of toothpaste, toothbrush and floss, as well as adequate nutrition and observation.

"This can prevent tooth decay and the loss of tooth structure or the entire tooth," said the academic from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in a statement.

In addition, he recommended eliminating habits such as the use of pacifiers or thumb sucking for prolonged periods, as they can distort the position of the teeth and the growth of the jaws, which could even affect the speech patterns of infants.
