Basic oral health surveys provide a sound basis for estimation of the present oral health status of a population and its future needs for oral health care. They produce reliable baseline data for development of national or regional oral health programmes and for planning for appropriate numbers and types of personnel for oral care. Since the first edition of this manual was published in 1971, more than 130 health administrations have conducted oral health surveys in accordance with the recommended basic methods. These surveys have shown that dramatic changes in oral health have occurred in many populations, as a result of changes in disease trends and new treatment techniques as well as changes in age structure.
