Rome, April 19 - One Italian family out of three
gave up taking their children back to the dentist in 2012 after
the first visit as part of belt-tightening sacrifices during the
economic crisis, a report by the National Orthodontic College
said on Friday.
Approximately two million children risk permanent damage
to their teeth and 40% fewer families can afford braces to
correct dental alignment, the report said.
According to the publication, currently five million
children between the ages of five and 14 are in need of
orthodontic devices.
In Italy, 90-95% of orthodontic care is private.
