Hispanic children in Utah are twice as likely to have an untreated cavity compared to children who are not Hispanic.
A recent study by the Hispanic Dental Association on oral health discovered the information.
The data from the study can be explained by cultural differences. Dental hygiene is not valued as highly in other countries as it is in the United States. There are some people who wait until they are in excruciating pain until they decide to visit a dentist. At that point, it may be too late to do all of the procedures necessary to make the teeth as healthy as possible.
