Oral health loss is one of the major problems existing all over the world and is one of the top causes of death when unmanaged.

The oral cavity is home to numerous pathogenic microorganisms, some of which are responsible for the progression and development of various systemic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and myocardial infarction.

Worldwide, 60-90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities, often leading to pain and discomfort.

There are implications for the global economy as well, due to the continuous burden of investing resources to maintain oral hygiene.
