Reporting the economic burden of oral diseases is important to evaluate the societal relevance of preventing and addressing oral diseases. In addition to treatment costs, there are indirect costs to consider, mainly in terms of productivity losses due to absenteeism from work. The purpose of the present study was to estimate the direct and indirect costs of dental diseases worldwide to approximate the global economic impact. Estimation of direct treatment costs was based on a systematic… Expand
Global-, Regional-, and Country-Level Economic Impacts of Dental Diseases in 2015
TLDR
Severe tooth loss was found to imply 67% of global productivity losses due to dental diseases, followed by severe periodontitis and untreated caries, and improvements in population oral health may be highly beneficial and could contribute to further increases in people's well-being given available resources.

Cost savings from averted prescription opioidattributable dental diseases in the United States between 2013 and 2019
TLDR
The decline in opioid prescriptions between 2013 and 2019 may have averted over 3.6 million combined cases of untreated caries and edentulism, and may have saved the US economy over $1.4 billion in direct and indirect costs. Expand
Oral health promotion: the economic benefits to the NHS of increased use of sugarfree gum in the UK
TLDR
If levels of SFG usage in the teenage population in the UK could be increased, substantial cost savings might be achieved, and sensitivity analyses of the key parameters demonstrated that cost savings would still be likely to be observed even in scenarios with less significant increases in SFG use.
