DentalReachExclusive Breastfeeding Linked to the Reduction of Dental Diseases in Children

Researchers discovered that among the 24,655 children aged between 6 months to 5 years examined, the overall prevalence of dental tooth decay, cavities, and toothaches was 9%. Dental illness was more common in children who had never been nursed (12.3%) and those who had public health insurance (14.3%). Children who were exclusively breastfed for 6 months, on the other hand, were shown to be 28% less likely to suffer dental tooth decay, cavities, or toothaches than children who were never breastfed.
