Parental stress can impact children's teeth

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We know that stress can make us sick, but did you know that parental stress can damage your kids teeth?

That's according to researchers at Ohio State University. They wanted to see if there was a difference in the parents of children who had no cavities or a mouthful of cavities. So, they studied dental records and they also surveyed the parents about job stresses and relationship troubles. They found that the more stressed the parents, the more likely their children were to have tooth decay.
