Oral Diseases really matter. Globally, billions of people suffer from untreated dental decay. Worldwide, untreated decay in permanent teeth is the most prevalent disease, and severe gum disease is the sixth most common disease. Oral and dental diseases afflict almost everyone. They begin in the very young and lead to substantial dental morbidity and functional problems among older people. Throughout the lifespan, dental diseases negatively impact on quality of life and social functioning.
ICOHIRP are delighted to announce the arrival of the Social inequalities in oral health: from evidence to action Monograph (launched at the ICOHIRP Launch Conference).
