Parents may sometimes blame genetics but the reality is that you cannot blame genetics on tooth decay in kids.
The primary cause for tooth decay in children is having a child’s mouth that is not optimally clean. Parents tend to not have their children brush their teeth after they eat; they put bottles of milk or formula in their mouth before they sleep because they’re crying, etc. These are the primary reasons for tooth decay in children.
I think if a parent can keep a child’s mouth spotlessly clean (and it does take effort because children tend to eat many times during the day), you’ll get great results dentally.
