Q.

Tooth Decay

I once heard that your teeth 'age' twice as fast as the rest of you so one has to take extra care of them. Is this true? are our teeth really more susceptible to decay and disintergration?
Thanks,
carol

Dear Carol

This is the first time I am hearing of such a statement. Like the rest of our body, the more we look after our teeth the more problem free they will be.
