Abstract

Poor oral hygiene is a prevalent problem in India. Mango branches can act as a toothbrush and contain a chemical called mangiferin, which can act as a natural toothbrush. Information on proper dental hygiene was provided and a plan for providing and distributing mango tree branches was developed. The rate of tooth caries dropped significantly.
