Oral health denotes the state of the head, face, and oral cavity that enable individuals to accomplish dynamic functions such as ingestion, respiration, and communication. It also incorporates psychosocial dimensions such as self-confidence and the ability to socialize the work [1]. Oral health oscillates over the life path from early life to old age, and is vital to general health, and achieving their potential i.e., oral hygiene is a foundational component and key indicator of general health, well-being, and quality of life. However, deprived oral health might lead to dental decay, periodontal(gum)disease, tooth loss, noma (Gangrenous disease), oral cancer, and inviting cardiovascular and respiratory infections [2]. Oro-dental trauma can be triggered by environmental factors such as road accidents, unsafe playgrounds, and risk-taking behaviors, and oral factors such as lack of alignment of teeth may be caused by cleft lip and palate. Globally, the prevalence of oral diseases endures with rising urbanization and variations in living conditions [1].
