Are Baby Teeth and Autism Linked?

Every dentist is aware that copper and zinc are important minerals in terms of oral health. However, their levels within baby teeth might also affect the chances of developing the cognitive disorder autism. How was this discovered?

– Copper and zinc are deposited in baby teeth as they develop.

– This development occurs within the womb and during the first few years of life.

– Abnormal levels of these minerals may indicate the presence of autism.

“This study is the first to find a marker that can predict the risk for autism with 90 percent accuracy.”
