Children’s Dental Care
New analysis by the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) at The Royal College of Surgeons has found that approximately 80% of children between the age of one and two didn’t visit an dentist in the 12 months leading up to March 31st 2017, despite guidance saying children should start dental check-ups when they develop their first tooth. The analysis also found that almost 60% of children aged one to four didn’t have a dental check-up in the same period.
During 2015/16, there were 9,220 cases of tooth extractions performed in hospitals on children aged one to four. This procedure often requires children to receive a general anaesthetic. Many of these cases can be attributed to tooth decay, which the FDS points out is 90% preventable.
