There is a major dental health problem in the U.S., and healthcare professionals have not only been searching for a solution, but for the cause of this issue. While some Americans simply lack access to affordable dental care, others are suffering from tooth decay due to poor diet. Recently, The Dispatch, a North Carolina news source, published an article discussing the growing number of children in the area who are experiencing dental problems, and the potential causes behind it.
