A dental infection Programme has found that kids studying in primary schools in Scotland have healthier and infection-free teeth. It added that nearly two-third of the kids aged 11 years or above are free from the possibility of dental problems.
Meeting the Government's estimations, around 60% of the school going children in the country have been found to be free from indications of dental illness.
The figures have been identified as the highest, till date. The inspection kicked off last year, undertook a sequence of check-ups and recorded uneven results in different parts of the country.
A couple of regions which fall under the supervision of NHS could match the Government's expectations.
Nearly 55.5% of the kids in the Western Isles showed infection-free dental care results.
The Programme described "tooth decay" as the deterioration in the dentine, which is the shielding layer around the tooth.
Lanarkshire, Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and Dumfries and Galloway were the three other areas which depicted dental well being in children dropping below the 60% mark.
Ross Finnie, the Lib Dem health spokesman said, "Regular brushing and check-ups at the dentist can save children from a lifetime of dental misery".
