What is it with today's parents that they let their children's teeth get in to such a state that the kids all too often need to have teeth extracted at an ever younger age?

I'm not excusing the figures, but for context they should be related to the number of children in the population, which may or not have risen during the period compared.

Too much money, too many sweets, too many fizzy drinks, too much convenience food, too many lazy parents for examples. A sign of the times.

I did not know that it was best not to rinse out with water after brushing teeth with fluoride toothepaste but just to spit it out and thus give the fluoride in the toothepaste maximum time to do whatever it does to protect teeth against decay.

Makes sense HB, never thought of that either.
