Around the world, over 3.5 billion people suffer from some kind of oral disease, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The agency further says that caries of permanent teeth affect 2.3 billion people, and over 530 million children have caries in their primary teeth. Earlier overlooked, dental health is now garnering increasing attention from people. Not only can dental problems be painful, but misformed or badly arranged teeth are considered aesthetically appealing. Both these factors are leading to a rising footfall at dentists, which is, in turn, increasing the demand for various associated products and instruments.
