A new study suggests that there is a link between asthma and cavities in children.Parents of children with asthma do not need to be concerned about an increased risk of tooth decay but children who use nebulizers to control their asthma may be inadvertently increasing their frequency of exposure to sugars because these nebulizers use fructose to deliver therapy.The frequency and the amount of certain sugars consumed are major factors leading to cavities. Children who are mouth-breathers or who have mouth dryness be checked periodically by their dentists. These conditions may be associated with asthma. Many medications used for the long term (such as asthma medications) have been found to reduce the amount of saliva, which is the first protection of teeth.
