Description:
Overall there has been a major improvement in the dental health of children and teenagers in the Eastern Health Board since 1984. For example, the results of the present survey show that the prevalence of dental caries in deciduous and permanent teeth has declined by approximately 40 per cent. The prevalence of dental caries varies widely between the eight dental areas and also between the different subareas within each dental area. The pattern of treatment of dental caries also varies widely between areas and subareas. For example for 12-year-olds the percentage of the total decay experience attributable to fillings varies between 23 and 75 per cent. Wide variation was also seen in the level of fissure sealants among 8- and 12-year-olds.
