Poor Oral Health is Damaging UK Economy

Wednesday, Aug. 28th 2013 10:29 AM

In the UK over 2 million people stated they had to take time off of work due to poor oral health. The UK’s economy is being damaged unnecessarily with an estimated two million workers taking sick time off work due to poor oral health over the past five years.

Most problems with teeth and gums are preventable with a good oral health routine, but around seven per cent of the UK’s 29 million workforce have called in sick with teeth problems at least once in the past five years. The sickness figure is likely to be even higher as many people are still unaware that poor oral health can put them at greater risk of acute health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and strokes.
