Caring, sharing & learning together

Sharing, caring & learning together.  

Tooth decay is the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, yet it is largely preventable.

Almost 9 out of 10 hospital tooth extractions among children aged 0 to 5 years are due to preventable tooth decay and tooth extraction is still the most common hospital procedure in 6 to 10 year olds, according to PHE data up to 2019.

Tooth decay can cause problems with eating, sleeping, communication and socialising.

You can help reduce tooth decay in children by:                                                                                                                        

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Reducing how much and how requently you have sugary foods and drinks
  • Visiting your dentist regularly

It is important to teach your child how to clean their teeth properly and regularly. Your dentist can show you how to do this.
