Severe dental decay in younger children is very common in Cambodia. Even though these are the baby teeth which will eventually fall out, caries such as these can cause children severe and ongoing pain.
In any class of primary school children in Cambodia, a significant number of children are likely to be coming to school with caries such as these, with this causing a serious impediment to good learning outcomes. The best solution is to apply Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) to help arrest the decay.
