Bad oral hygiene causes tooth loss, hits self-esteem
from Deccan Chronicle
Oral health care is very low among Indians and, as a result, problems like gum disease and dental decay seem to hit Indians at a relatively younger age. A survey conduced in June across major Indian cities among doctors and patients revealed that edentulism (a condition of being toothless) starts before the age of 45 years, giving rise to several other problems, and have an impact on the self-esteem of patients as well.
