A new report has shown children’s teeth are getting worse.

A new report has been published by the Audit Commission which shows the dental health of under-fives in the UK has not improved over the last decade, despite investment of more than £10 billion by the government. child tooth

According to the findings, the average five-year-old had 1.43 decayed, missing or filled teeth in 1999-2000. However, this figure has now risen to 1.47.

Furthermore, it found children from deprived backgrounds are now 19 per cent more likely to have bad teeth than those from more affluent circumstances.

The report claimed: “Some health indicators have indeed worsened – for example, obesity and dental health – and the health inequalities gap between rich and poor has barely changed.”

Elsewhere, Aisha Sultan recently wrote in an article for the St Louis Dispatch that parents should aim to instil positive associations about oral health in their children and they can achieve this by being patient with their kids about trips to the dentist to avoid making it stressful.
