What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of adults who have had any permanent teeth extracted.
Why this is important: 
Oral health has been shown to impact overall health and well-being. Nearly one-third of all adults in the United States have untreated tooth decay, or tooth caries. In addition, one in seven adults aged 35 to 44 years old has periodontal (gum) disease. Both the severity and prevalence of periodontal disease increase with age. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are the most frequent causes of tooth loss. About 25% of adults over the age of 60 no longer have any natural teeth. Having missing teeth can affect overall health and nutrition. In addition, among those aged 65 and older, those in poverty are twice as likely as those with higher incomes to have lost all of their teeth. Given these serious health consequences, it is important to maintain good oral health.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Texas state value.
