Thread about current state and importance of Oral Health:

There is a shocking report about the state of dental Caries world wide:…

#dentalcare #OralHealth #Lancet #GlobalOralHealth
1) 3.5 Billion People are affected by Caries.

If you have never had a comprehensive exam with a full set of xrays done, you are one of those 3.5B people. That’s basically 3 Indian populations put together.

2) Dental Caries does not always hurt.

That’s when you should aim for it to be detected and treated. Typically it will means a filling. Occasionally a crown. Rarely a root canal or extraction.
