A study conducted in Abu Dhabi in 1998 found a high prevalence of dental caries in children aged 2, 4 and 5 years. Despite the fact that a high prevalence of dental caries (range: 74.1–83%) among 4- to 5-year-olds and a high decayed, missing and filled teeth index (range: 3.07–10.9) have been reported in different areas of the UAE. HealOzone is now available for everyone who wants to show healthy, clean and beautiful teeth, without undergoing painful treatments.
