According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adding fluoride to the water supply has dramatically reduced the prevalence of tooth decay
over the past 70 years.
in 2007-08, 14 children out of a class size of 30 would have decay
experience, with an average of 4.
Cwm Taf University Health Board, which covers Rhondda Cynon Taff and Merthyr, was the only health board in Wales not to see a "statistically and clinically significant reduction" in tooth decay

Therefore, primary intervention will have most impact before the age of three, so we are refocusing Designed to Smile on the birth-five age group, restating the overarching aim of the programme, to keep children decay

The researchers said that application of high concentration fluoride varnish by dentists to the sites of early decay
, attention to home tooth brushing skills, restriction of between-meal snacks and beverages containing added sugar, and risk-specific monitoring can help prevent tooth decay

Mutants are found in the normal mouth, not just those of tooth decay
The hidden variable in time possibility first presented in  gives a deterministic approach that attempts to explain the distribution in decay
time as a result of a compatible distribution in an additional internal property within the particles.
Untreated tooth decay
also destroys the inside of the tooth (pulp), which leads to severe tooth pain.
Just over 10% of toddlers in the region suffer from visible tooth decay
, according to a survey published by Public Health England (PHE).
Despite this, the National Dental Epidemiology Programme for England's oral health survey of five-year-old children on the prevalence and severity of dental decay
