Tooth decay (often referred to as cavities) is the single most common chronic childhood disease. In fact, it's five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever. Also, many adults have untreated cavities (e.g., 27% of those 20-39 years, 21% of those 40-59 years, and 19% of those 60 years and older).
