Tooth decay is a major problem for teenagers in Ireland.
Recent information indicates that the tooth decay for teenagers there ranks among the highest in Europe. This is a major problem based on the fact that teenagers have double the chance of developing permanent decay in Ireland when compared to other countries.
The problem is compounded for teenagers in low-income areas, whereas teenagers in more affluent locations visit their dentists more often.
