Children’s oral health in the UK is in crisis!
332 children under 10 had their entire full set of teeth removed under general anaesthetic in the last 5 years. The number of children requiring multiple tooth extractions is soaring. It costs the NHS millions of pounds every year and is on the increase.
Tooth decay causes pain and suffering as well as absence from school and a whole host of further oral health problems. Tooth decay is 100% preventable. Failure as a country to act on prevention is putting huge pressure on our NHS. It’s time for investment in our children’s oral health!
