Abstract

Dental problems are very common and affect people of all ages. The physical and emotional discomfort, economic loss, and inconvenience can be significant. Primary care physicians providing health care for children can prevent morbidity resulting from dental problems. This article will discuss the preventive role of the physician after presenting an overview of the prevalence, etiology, morbidity, and preventive measures for the most common pediatric dental problems seen by the primary care physician: caries, periodontal disease, malocclusion, and dental trauma.
