Dental health continues to improve in England
Updated: 12/2/2012 9:28:09 PM

Dental health continues to improve in England  Dental health is a major issue worldwide, and it's important for people to recognize that oral care is a major part of overall health. Recently, the British Dental Journal completed the Adult Dental Health Survey, which highlighted that there have been major improvements made regarding the oral health of adults in England, which is something Americans should strive for.

In 1968, 37 percent of the British population had no teeth. Now, only 6 percent of the combined population of England and Wales are missing their teeth. Furthermore, having at least 21 teeth has been associated with having proper mouth function.

The survey's investigators found that 86 percent of British adults have more than 21 teeth in 2009, compared with 73 percent in 1978.

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, more than 35 million individuals in the U.S. have no teeth and that number is expected to grow in the coming years. Also, the number of Americans missing a considerable amount of teeth is also predicted to continue increasing in the next 15 years to more than 200 million individuals.
