Tooth Decay:

Too many children experience the pain and discomfort of tooth decay. Not only does this cause difficulties eating, smiling and sleeping, this sometimes results in teeth being removed under general anaesthetic. Latest figures from Public Health England (PHE) reveal a child in England has a rotten tooth removed in hospital every ten minutes. That’s almost 40,000 a year.
