ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the early childhood tooth decay. Eating and drinking sweetened food and drinks, and lack of self-management are the conventional causes of tooth decay. And dental surgery as a conventional treatment does not cure tooth decay caused from a lack of nutrients in the body, but only treats the immediate symptom. The author stresses that a mother's healthy diet during and after pregnancy would lead to lower chance of child's tooth defects.
