A consultant in paediatric dentistry says it "beggars belief" that children's diets could lead to so many having to have their teeth removed.
Kathryn Harley, former dean of the faculty of dental surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons, told the Times: "We have children who require all 20 of their baby teeth to be extracted."
Ms Harley said many of the children presenting with problems could need four or even eight teeth out, with "quite a few" having as many as 14 extracted.
