Extreme tooth decay lands thousands in hospital – The Age
“Dental conditions (eg. tooth decay) are the leading cause of preventable hospitalisations for children and teenagers, ahead of asthma and ear, nose and throat infections.
While you might expect to find most emergency rooms busy with broken bones and disease, experts say a surprisingly large number of people are turning up with painful swollen mouths, a telltale sign of decay.”
If you think you have a problem with a tooth – please remember to see your dentist! Ending up in hospital for something that can be easily fixed early on is the key!
