Ninety years of modern dentistry activities has passed in Iran, but the statistics of dental health indicators in this country have not significantly improved. The most problems in the field of Dentistry in Iran including the numbers of extracted, decayed and restored teeth are very high among the Iranians. This problem in the area of oral health is due to the misconception of dentistry which has been dominated in the past. Before the people believed that their teeth cannot be used for the whole life. If the teeth have decays, they must take them out. So, they don't have any other choices except to replace them with full mouth dentures. Fortunately, this thinking, view and approach are outdated. It seems public opinion and the authorities views have changed prospective to dental and oral health; and turned toward preventive dentistry.
