World Oral Health Day is the world’s largest awareness campaign on oral health.
The official theme of the 2021 campaign is Be Proud of Your Mouth.
On 20 March, we ask the world to unite to help reduce the burden of oral diseases, which affect individuals, health systems and economies everywhere.
7 Key Oral Health Messages for World Oral Health Day
Everyone can help address the oral disease burden by sharing these 7 key messages about good oral health at every stage of life.
#1 Look After Oral Health for Overall Health
Just like other major diseases, prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases is important to prevent negative effects on the rest of your body.
#2 Protect your Mouth while you’re on-the-go
Chewing sugar-free gum is proven beneficial to dental health as it helps neutralise plaque acids.
#3 Learn Good Oral Health Habits for Children
It is important to care for your teeth and mouth because germs can cause toothache, tooth decay and holes in your teeth.
#4 Take Charge of Your Oral Health
Tooth decay is the most common dental health problem in the world, caused by an unhealthy diet high in sugar and exposure to other health risk factors.
#5 Maintain a Balanced, Low-Sugar Diet
Excessive amounts of sugar from drinks, snacks, and processed foods not only cause tooth decay but also contributes to obesity and increases the risk of diabetes.
#6 Practice a Good Hygiene Routine
Oral diseases can impact every aspect of life, from relationships and self-confidence through to school, work and the ability to interact with others.
Learn to practice a good oral hygiene routine every day in order to prevent oral diseases from occurring.
#7 Visit your Applecross Dentist Regularly
Oral diseases often lead to pain, discomfort, social isolation, loss of self-confidence, and lost hours at work or school, too.
Remember to visit your trusted Applecross dentist for a routine check-up and cleans.
