    No-shows increases the risk of caries in children

    No-shows from tandlægeaftaler, dental phobia, as well as parents who are avoiding dental treatment, are risk factors for the development of caries in children, shows a new Swedish study. The survey includes more than 500 children and their parents.

    The Swedish authors conclude that children, who have a history of no-shows, and who have parents who fail when it comes to complying with the children's tandlægeaftaler – they have an elevated risk of having developed dental caries as a five-year-old.
