Commercials usually show the use of food as a measure of entertainment and not to satisfy hunger. Rarely would we see an overweight child in these ads, and that sends the message that "inappropriate use of food has no impact on health and nutrition" (Trahms, C.M., & Pipes, P.L., (ed).

It starts off as a little white spot and if you do not treat it right away or within 30 days it could get worst and it will turn into a cavity.
