WHO's oral health work focuses on strengthening cost-effective promotion of oral health and oral health care across the population within the primary care system. Most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages. Most cases are dental caries (cavities), periodontal diseases, oral cancers, dental trauma, cleft lip and palate, and noma (severe gangrenous disease that begins in the mouth and mainly affects children).
