$10b for Fixing Dental Health Issues, Says Report

As per recent reports, it has been revealed that a report on account of the state of the nation's teeth has confirmed that the dental health status of the nation is waning out with the passage of time.

In this regard, it has been said that a universal Denticare scheme may well play as a major solution for the same.

The report released by National Dental Health Advisory Council has claimed that childhood oral ailments went down in ‘70s, though they started creep back to the basics during the fall of the last decade and thereby went on to showcase an increase in sugar consumption which is being blamed majorly for the entire issue at hand.

It has been found that a large number of people in Australia are suffering from poor oral health, due to which they suffer pain and episodes of social exclusion.

Experts have claimed that poor oral health among children can act as a massive precursor for the sake of severing the disability among adult life as well as in a variety of atypical cases of death.

The out-of-pocket expenditure to the health system on a yearly basis year is close to $4.5 billion, though the report has claimed that the price tag for bringing about a quick-fix in the system for providing assistance to those who are in need of dental services and may well afford them is no less than double the current amount.

In this regard, Tanya Plibersek, the Federal Health Minister, said: “I think that this report does make some good suggestions about what our next steps might be, but it also shows that if we wanted to implement everything that the report suggests tomorrow, that we wouldn't even have the dental workforce to do it”.
