JACKSON, Miss. --A lot of Mississippi kids have cavities, but there are things you can do to help improve their oral health.
The state’s dental director says that’s not always a good idea to let kids brush their teeth without your help. “They really don’t have the manual disparity to do a great job until they are between like eight and 10.”
Richardson says cavities can lead to other more serious health issues like heart disease and even death. This is National Children’s Dental Health Month.
