Dental conservation methods are those processes that can be utilized to maintain good oral health. They can be instituted at both individual and professional levels like; tooth brushing, amalgam fillings, inlays, among others. Like most other diseases, oral diseases affect all age groups irrespective of their nationality, race, and creed (WHO, 1999). Oral health describes a standard of health of dental and related tissues which enable an individual to eat, speak and socialize without active disease, discomfort or embarrassment and which contributes to the general wellbeing.This is stressed further by the Commonwealth Dental Association(CDA) which states that “good oral health is an essential and important component of general health and it is a birthright of every individual in the world”.
