Oral health is a critical component of overall health and well-being. Dental caries and periodontitis are two of the most common oral diseases and, when not treated, can have irreversible sequelae and overall psychosocial and physiologic impact on individuals, diminishing quality of life. The burden of advanced dental caries and periodontal disease leading to tooth loss is severe. Physicians and allied medical professionals can help in early detection of dental caries, abscess, and periodontal diseases and initiate management followed by prompt referral to dental colleagues.
