A poor oral hygiene or any oral disease affects the oral health and then ultimately the general health of a person which in return
influences the overall appearance of a person. Thus it is very important to take a good care of oral health. Oral hygiene is the practice
of keeping the mouth clean and healthy by brushing and flossing to prevent gum diseases and tooth decay. It is done in order to
prevent the plaque and food deposit on tooth thus to prevent caries and cavities.
