It is estimated that at the national level 90 percent of Mexicans are affected by cavities and 70 percent by gum disease, the two main ailments of the oral cavity, says the head of the Dental Clinic of the Faculty of Higher Studies ( FES) Iztacala from UNAM, Luisa López Osuna.
It may be that the cavities are small or that there is inflammation of the gums. Worse still, that an important condition occurs, including the loss of dental pieces, the specialist specifies.
According to the World Health Organization, these disorders include oral cancers, manifestations of HIV, trauma, cleft lip and palate, as well as noma (a serious gangrenous disease that begins in the mouth and affects mostly children). . Most are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages.
