Dental health is related to mouth, teeth, and gums. An objective of dental health is to prevent certain complications such as gum disease, tooth decay, as well as to maintain the health of the mouth. Gum disease and tooth decay may cause tooth damage, bad breath, yellowing of the teeth, and loss of teeth. These kinds of problems can influence a person’s confidence and results in feeling insecure about appearance. Regular dental care routine can prevent most of this damage and the existing damage can be repaired. Dental industry has witnessed notable technological innovations, which directly benefit dental practices. Development of electrosurgery and laser surgery techniques allow dentists to perform precise incision at the time of surgeries and causes less damage to tissues. Advancement of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has minimized the time required for prosthodontic restoration procedures up to one day. Conventional radiology equipment has been replaced with digital radiology equipment that is equipped with picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), making it easy to archive treatment records. Many people in the world cannot afford dental care due to expensive dental procedures.
