Abstract: Though dental health is becoming a hot issue, few people know clearly about dental health. The introduction on dental health can be helpful for us.

1 What do we mean by dental health?

In general, the concept of dental health includes all aspects of the health of our mouth, especially the teeth and gums. Teeth and shanghai dental can be easily infected, and then such problems as dental caries, inflammation of gums, tooth loss and bad breath may be caused. Dental caries is also called tooth decay or cavities, and it is one of the most common problems on teeth. Usually, dental caries is caused because of oral hygiene and exposure to fluoride.

If the tooth enamel is exposed to acids, which can lead to the loss of tooth enamel, the problem of erosion will occur. Besides, there are other two forms of tooth wear, including attrition and abrasion. Only when teeth are eroded by tooth-to-tooth contact can lead to attrition.

Another problem that can affect dental health is periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease.
