Gurugram,August 6, 2021 : Apeejay Stya University, along with Rotaract Club and NSS, organised a Health and Wellness webinar on Oral Health in association with Medanta Medicity.

Dr Amrita Gogia, head of department, Dental Science, Medanta Medicity, addressed a seminar on the topic ‘Oral Health- Myths Busted’ in which she began with clarifying about common myths related to dental cavities. For instance, she busted myths such as pain being a characteristic of cavity.

A dental cavity, said Dr Gogia, begins at the enamel, the outer layer of the teeth. It is painless in the initial stage. However a person is alerted by pain only when the cavity reaches the pulp, the innermost part of the tooth in contact with nerves and blood vessels.
