Every tooth in your head is costlier than a diamond. This is a little saying that we dentist go by. Now generally you’d think that is a bit of exaggeration here!

According to the Dentist Smriti Shikha “The goal of proper oral hygiene is to remove or prevent formation and buildup of plaque and tartar, to prevent dental caries and periodontal disease, and to decrease the incidence of halitosis. Oral health issues like cavities and untreated tooth decay could lead to periodontal disease. And a recent study by the Journal of the American Heart Association found that the inflammation caused by periodontal disease can lead to an increased risk of heart disease”
