Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypo mineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The systemic theory of decay suggests that other factors become relevant only after hypo mineralization has begun.

Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:

  • Baby teeth versus adult teeth
  • Anterior vs. posterior tooth patterns
  • Contra-lateral tooth patterns
  • Decay clustering
  • Post-eruption susceptibility
