British teeth are increasingly gleaming.
Tooth decay among children is at its lowest recorded level since 1983, figures show.Tut tut. First Gordon Ramsey and his lot go and revolutionize British fare, and now the denizens of Albion are taking good care of their teeth: what will be left for the world to make fun of the Limeys for? It really isn't on, old boys, terribly unsporting of you.
The biggest fall was among 15-year-olds, with only 13% suffering from decay compared with 42% in 1983 the Office for National Statistics found.
But the survey discovered variations across the UK, with Northern Ireland having the highest level of tooth decay among children.
The lowest levels were found in England, followed by Wales.
