Abstract

Nearly 3.5 billion people suffer from oral diseases, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The most common oral illnesses are tooth decay, severe gum disease, tooth loss and oral cancers, with untreated tooth decay affecting nearly 2.5 billion people.
“Oral health has long been neglected in global health, but many oral diseases can be prevented,” said WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
