NHS data obtained by the faculty of dental surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) shows there were 9,206 extractions aged four and under in 2015-16 compared with 7,444 in 2006-07 – that’s a 24% rise.
The RCS figures also show more than 34,000 extractions were performed on children aged nine and under in each of the past two years, compared with 27,760 in 2005-06.
Early dental screening will identify if there is a need for any particular attention. The short session will examine your child’s dentition for the presence of dental decay, the need for fluoride application and fissure sealants and any further dental treatment required.
At Holland Park, our approach with all our patients is kind, gentle and friendly but we know this is especially important with children. Together we are creating habits and experiences they will remember for a lifetime.
We look forward to meeting you and your little one and working together to promote life-long excellent oral health.
