Be Proud of Your Mouth, The Importance of World Oral Health Day

Did you know it is world oral health Day on the 20th of March? It’s a day when dental professionals worldwide try to raise awareness about the importance of good dental health. This year the theme is “Be Proud of Your Mouth”.

We think it is a wonderful theme and hope to inspire our lovely patients to focus even more on maintaining excellent oral health, and not just during March. While good dental health helps you enjoy all the benefits of a healthy and more attractive smile, it’s especially important for good overall health. Taking care of your teeth and gums can help reduce the risk of serious disease. There is a close connection between dental health and general health, and poor oral health has been associated with several major diseases, including diabetes and heart disease.

It isn’t hard to get a mouth that you can be proud of, and we can help you attain your very best level of dental health simply with regular dental visits combined with excellent oral care at home. If you haven’t visited us for a while, this month is a great time to book that appointment.
