Canada Leads the Way in Oral Health

Dentists Seeing Improvement in Oral Health Statistics in Canada

Aurora, ON – July 15, 2017 – Although many countries struggle with oral health issues, Canada ranks as one of the best. The country makes dental care affordable and available to people of all backgrounds. Yazdani Dental, an Aurora Dentist, has been in practice since 1994 and has seen tremendous improvements in oral health statistics over the years.

Canada has a high percentage of people who regularly see a dentist. About 40 years ago, only 49.5% of people went to a dentist for consults each year. Now, that number is up to 74.5%. In addition, the levels of dental decay in Canada have drastically decreased. The percentage of adolescents with tooth decay is down to 58.8% from 96.6%.

Dr. Yazdani, from Yazdani Dental, has this to say about oral health in Canada and the importance of awareness for his patients:

“An integral part of our practice is to educate our patients and assist them to understand their role in achieving optimum oral health. We take time at the end of each appointment to discuss patient-specific requirements for at home care.”

While Canada is one of the leaders in oral health, there is room for improvement. About 2.26 million days of school are missed every year because of dental illnesses. Approximately 32% of Canadians are lacking dental insurance. A shocking 53% of adults between the ages 60-79 have no dental insurance, and half of all Canadians in the low-income bracket lack insurance.

Nevertheless, many Canadians have great oral health. 84% of Canadians claim that their oral health is either good or excellent.
