    Introduction: Oral health plays an important role in a total individual’s health. The aim of the study is to identify whether brushing twice a day has any effects in maintaining oral health by preventing caries. Normally, it takes 48 h for bacteria to form large colonies to cause a problem. Brushing teeth with a perfect brush and in a perfect manner also contribute to the frequency of brushing. Materials and Methods: It is a questionnaire-based study which will be circulated among 200 people, and the result will be discussed with statistics. All normal nondiseased individuals aged between 11 and 50 are to be taken for the survey. People aged beyond 50 is excluded since some of them may have oral diseases and children <11 are excluded because for them still milk tooth may persist were excluded. Results and Conclusion: Although the majority of South Indian population is aware of the importance of maintaining oral health, the steps to be implemented for attaining better oral health still are in its cold path. The study proved the fact that the overall awareness of the people has increased in the past decade, but still their reluctance toward following a healthy mouth is in vain.
