Mr. larn recently or uuDun, ire- iet about securlns: the school records
of as many children as possible, to
gether with records of their teeth, in
order to ascertain facts which should
throw light on this subject.
One of the Questions to which X
sought an answer was this: What Is
the difference in the school progress
of children who have good teeth and
those who have bad teeth? What is
the difference, if any. In the scholar
ship of these children, in their height.
and in their weight? I did not be
lieve that there were any appreciable
differences In solid, material facts of
this kind, but I made some surprising
discoveries. I discovered that chil
dren take, on the average, half a year
longer to go through school if their
teeth are out of order. Children
who have decayed teeth go through
school more slowly than children whe
have good teeth.
An investigation made by Dr. F.
Burke showed that children with de
cayed teeth are shorter; that they are
about as tall as children seven months
younger who have good teeth. A sim
ilar difference was found In respect
Now, what is the reason for this?
What is the connection between de
cayed teeth and scholarship, height
and weight? The answer Is this:
Practically all children who have bad
teeth have teeth that are more or
less sensitive most of the time. They
chew their food less thoroughly: they
do not eat as much; hence they do
not grow as well as children with nor
mal teeth. Having sensitive teeth es
tablishes the bolting habit, which per
sists through life.
