UK Against Fluoridation

EVERY tooth removed is blamed on too much sugar

Tooth scary: Shocking rise in kids having EVERY tooth removed is blamed on too much sugar Cost of procedure on children hits £35m a year, a jump of 61 per cent
DENTISTS now regularly have to remove EVERY tooth from a child’s mouth, shocking research suggests.

Children as young as two are being taken to hospital with mouths full of cavities – and it is thought that fizzy drinks are playing a big part.

Dentists have also blamed children’s toothpaste - which they claim often has too little fluoride.
According to figures published today, the bill for removing British children’s decayed teeth has reached £35million a year - an increase of 61 per cent over the last five years.
Every day, more than 100 kids and teenagers go under anaesthetic to remove multiple decayed teeth
Claire Stevens, a consultant in paediatric dentistry in Manchester, said that many procedures are now to remove at least half of a child’s rotten teeth – and in some cases every tooth must be taken out.

She told the Daily Mail: “I do a complete clearance of a child’s teeth about once every other week.”

She added: “A few weeks ago we had to do this for a two-year-old, and even for an experienced team, we found this utterly shocking.”

Dr Sandra White, the director of dental public health at Public Health England, said: “We can prevent tooth decay in our children by limiting sugary food and drink, making sure they brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, especially before bed, and taking them to the dentist regularly.”

Sandra White didn't mention fluoridation - amazing.


  • Something in the water: is fluoride actually good for cities?

    Excerpt: Yet the best performers, with smallest d3mft figures – towns and cities like Brighton (0.35), Bristol (0.35) and Richmond on Thames (0.4) – are also cities and towns where the drinking water is not fluoridated. Around one million people in Birmingham – the whole of the city’s population – are supplied with artificially fluoridated water. But its d3mft rating is 1.17, higher than the national average. Across the West Midlands, where water has been fluoridated since 1964, there has been a 300% rise in children under the age of 10 being admitted to hospital for multiple teeth extractions in the last five years.
