  13. 13. Conclusion<br />1. People are saying that they brush their oral <br /> cavity everyday with plastic tooth brush but<br /> oral health status does not confirm this finding.<br /> It shows that they are aware of brushing.<br /> (may be from media)<br /> Young population is consuming sticky food <br /> more than adults. So they need more education<br /> to keep better oral hygeine.<br />
