Abstract

The mouth is the portal of entry into the body, thus it is essential to attain and maintain oral health care. This process begins from the early period of life. Humans have two sets of teeth, and they start developing even before birth and development lasts till the age of around 25 years. Thus it is essential to take care of teeth during early stages of life, as they can affect overall well-being of the human. This paper describes how children's oral health is affected by external and internal factors and also risk factors which are associated with their oral health. The aim of this research paper is to elaborate on the concern of oral health, especially in children, by illustrating the significance of primary/deciduous dentition and also other external factors that affect children's oral health in this country, as this plays a crucial role in national medical and financial consequences. In this paper we attempted to discover demographics, gender, racial distribution, and external factors related to children's oral health status and whether or not these characteristics are strongly associated in influencing the children's overall dental health.
