Oral health should be a priority for every age group and member of your family.
Our West Ryde family dentist invites you to celebrate World Oral Health Day with us by renewing your commitment to oral health.
World Oral Health Day is recognised every year on March 20th. Its purpose is to promote international awareness of the issues concerning oral health and the benefits of a healthy mouth.
This year’s theme focuses on the connection between oral health and overall well-being: “It all starts here. Healthy mouth. Healthy body.”
7 Key Oral Health Messages for World Oral Health Day
World Oral Health Day 2021 is only a couple of days away. 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 any other major diseases, prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases is important to prevent any 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
Consuming excessive amounts of sugar from drinks, snacks, and processed foods not only causes tooth decay but also contributes to obesity and increases the risk of diabetes.
#6. Practice a Good Hygiene Routine
Oral diseases, such as tooth decay and gum disease, can impact every aspect of life, from relationships and self-confidence through to school, work and the ability to interact with others.
Oral diseases are preventable, though, so it’s important to practice a good oral hygiene routine every day.
#7. Visit your West Ryde Dentist Regularly
Oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people and are often linked to other serious health issues.
These diseases often lead to pain, discomfort, social isolation, loss of self-confidence, and lost hours at work or school, too.
Celebrating World Oral Health Day 2021
It’s never too early or too late to start looking after your mouth; your body will thank you.
