CHALKY TEETH

The 'Chalky Teeth Campaign' is a public-awareness initiative that seeks to educate about chalky teeth problems and the urgent need for research. We hope that by combining public interests with professional and scientific expertise around the world, powerful research can be done to discover cures for the most-troublesome chalky teeth conditions.

Chalky teeth problems are very common but widely overlooked. 'Chalky 6-year molars' are of most concern because they affect 1-in-6 children worldwide. With 12 million new cases each year plus a 10-fold higher risk of tooth decay (dental caries), we see a fantastic opportunity for chalky teeth research to improve lives and save expenditure.
