The Local Government Association (LGA) has issued a warning to parents about letting their children eat too much sugar, after the latest figures showed that there were nearly 45,000 operations to remove rotten teeth from children and teenages in England in 2018/19. That equated to 177 a day, and it cost the NHS £41.5 million, according to the latest figures on spending from the organisation.

 

According to the LGA, the majority of these operations were tooth extractions as a result of tooth decay.

 

Following the extended lockdown in the UK, many councils around the country are worried that children may have been consuming even more sugary foods and drink than normal, which could pose a risk to their oral health.

 

Councillor Ian Hudspeth, chairman of the LGA’s Community Wellbeing Board, commented: “We need to do all we can to reduce how much sugar our children eat and drink, including investing in oral health education so that everyone understands the impact of sugar on teeth and the importance of a good oral hygiene regime.”

 

Earlier in the year, some dentists raised concerns about how long all patients might have to wait for fillings if they need them, with the Covid-19 pandemic meaning that many could have to wait months to get their tooth decay seen to.

 

Welsh dentist Lowri Leeke spoke to the BBC and said that not being able to offer fillings to patients until January 2021 would mean that many had more severe problems when they were seen by their dentist. She noted that although they can offer extractions, “not everyone wants [them]”.

 

It could certainly be worth investing in preventative dentistry in Surrey if you are in a position to, as this could mean that you don’t experience any more severe problems in the coming months.
