Here’s a shock statistic: 170 children a day are having teeth taken out under general anaesthetic in England and Wales. The situation is similarly grim in Scotland and Northern Ireland where 30% and 40% of five year olds respectively have tooth decay - a condition caused by high levels of sugar and poor oral hygiene. So what can we do about it? And how can we encourage children to brush more regularly?
