A new era for oral hygiene: Dentists say dental hygiene is on the rise
- by admin
Health and human services minister David Jones says that oral hygiene is one of the key issues facing the NHS and the public, and that his department will focus on developing a national dental hygiene strategy.
The announcement comes as a growing number of hospitals and other healthcare providers have taken steps to ensure that their staff are up to date with modern technology, including the use of electronic dentures.
The announcement comes amid mounting evidence that oral health is on a rising trend.
In a report published last year, the Association of Dentists of Great Britain (ADGGB) said that the rate of tooth decay in England had risen steadily in the past decade, from 4.6 per cent in 2008 to 6.6 percent in 2016.
It also noted that there was a decline in the number of people with mild to moderate dental problems.
In the UK, more than 10 million people have a toothache, according to the NHS.
And the majority of people do not have access to the services they need.
