​Dr Wong Li Beng (Head of Division, Preventive Dentistry and Consultant, Dentistry,  NTFGH) highlighted that the state of an individual’s oral health is an indicator of their overall health condition. Oral diseases pose a major health burden for many countries. In fact, untreated dental caries (tooth decay) in permanent teeth is the most common health condition according to the Global Burden of Disease 2017. More emphasis should be accorded to oral health conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease which have links to chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, even as public awareness and knowledge increases.
