Tooth decay is the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, yet it is largely preventable.
Poor oral health can affect children and young people’s ability to sleep, eat, speak, play and socialise with other children. Other impacts include pain, infections, poor diet, and impaired nutrition and growth.
Oral health is an integral part of overall health. When children are not healthy, this affects their ability to learn, thrive and develop.
