The number of children in Scotland with no obvious sign of tooth decay has hit a record high.
Figures from NHS Scotland show four out of five (80%) P7 children had no obvious decay experience in their permanent teeth in 2019.
This is up from 53% in 2005 when records began.
Data from a national inspection programme shows seven out of 10 (69.5%) P7 children from the most deprived areas have no obvious decay experience.
This is less than children in the least deprived areas where almost nine out of 10 (88.1%) have no decay.
