Several important symposia were held during the 2010 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition. Here are several highlights of some of the most well-attended sessions.
Recent U.S. health surveys have documented a decline in the oral health of young children. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, between the periods 1988-1994 and 1999-2004, the prevalence of tooth decay in the primary teeth of children ages 2 to 4 years increased from 18 to 23%. The prevalence is higher among low-income children. One low-cost, highly effective, and readily available strategy to prevent caries is brushing twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste.
