Cause of Rampant dental caries in children
Older adults with dry mouth also tend to have rampant tooth decay. Aging causes your saliva flow to decrease. Saliva is a natural cleanser, without which cavities appear and progress much faster than usual.
Treatment for rampant dental caries in children
The treatment success of a person with rampant decay depends on the changes they make in their oral habits, no matter how old they are. A balanced diet is a must, and so is a proper oral hygiene routine.
