98% of children are tempted to eat chocolates. Also, with many upcoming brands and flavors, kids get easily influenced by the advertisements, and they get addicted to eating them repeatedly.
It’s common for them to consume a lot of chocolates at this age. But considering oral health, consumption of too many chocolates or sweets causes a cavity. Treatments include fluoride, fillings, and crowns. If the cavity increases, the root canal even leads to removing the tooth that has the cavity.
Untreated cavities can lead to severe pain and infections that may eventually lead to problems with eating and speaking. Children with poor oral hygiene suffer a lot.
