Over the past last ten years the proportion of seniors age 60 who’d lost all their teeth had decreased from 33% to 25%.   Use of dental sealant was up 64%.  30% of kids had had at least one sealed tooth   However for Smokers: Smokers still remain three times more likely than non-smokers to lose all their teeth.  This figure has not changed from a decade ago.
