The Failure of Conventional Dentistry
As we age, dental caries
is becoming more and more common, as seen in "caries throughout life" Chart. As we age, we also lose more teeth. Not including wisdom teeth in average from 20 to 39-year-old missing 1 tooth, on average, 40 to 59-year-old 3.5 teeth, and persons aged 60 years and older no 8 teeth.
Further decay statistics for people older than 40 years are negative. On average, at 45.89% of all teeth in this age group were affected by caries. On average, make up almost half the teeth in the mouth of every person under the influence of collapse. This situation is only getting worse. By the time you reach the age of 60, 62.36 per cent of all teeth affected by caries.
While it can be argued that the increase of caries with age due to the inherent to break the body over time, this does not explain why caries is on the rise among young children. Caries in the primary (baby) teeth in children aged 2 to 5 years increased from 24% to 28% over the period 1988-1994 and 1999-2004 period. Along with this increase in decline came to an increase in dental treatment. If the decay is called the aging process, why more and more young children suffering from this? And why not increase in dental treatment in these little children stopped caries?..
