Dental Conditions Prevailing in India

Indians consider oral health secondary to general health therefore dental care is taken for granted until it is too late. The result is dental caries, periodontal diseases, malocclusion, oro-facial anomalies, dental fluorosis, loss of teeth, temporo-mandibular joint disorders, dental trauma and oral cancers. Oral cancers are known to be life-threatening while other conditions often cause loss of morbidity, psychological stress and expensive treatment.
