Brushing teeth twice daily is very important and more importantly is the implementation of correct technique while brushing. Oral health related problems should not be neglected as not only can they result in oral complications but can also result in systemic complications like pre-term low weight births, angina, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary diseases and even worsen the prognosis of diabetic patients. Fortunately, many of the oral and related systemic pathologies can be prevented or successfully treated if intervened timely.
