The Cavities Get Around campaign is an initiative of the Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation. Launched in 2014, the campaign was established to educate Colorado families about the importance of:
Young children’s baby teeth, which are highly vulnerable to cavities.
This is because the protective enamel on baby teeth is especially thin compared to adult teeth.
Limiting sugary drinks such as juice to mealtimes, because the sugars in these drinks help fuel cavity-causing bacteria. These cavities can spread from baby teeth to adult teeth.
The importance of giving children only water between meals and at bedtime. Water is good for our teeth and helps wash away the cavity-causing bacteria.
