7 Key Oral Health Messages for World Oral Health Day
With World Oral Health Day 2021 only a couple of days away, everyone can help address oral diseases.
Here are 7 key messages about good oral health at every stage of life prepared for you by your Warrnambool dentist:
1. Look After Oral Health for Overall Health
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
4. Take Charge of Your Oral Health
Tooth decay is the most common dental health problem, caused by an unhealthy diet high in sugar and exposure to other health risk factors.
5. Maintain a Balanced, Low-Sugar Diet
Excessive sugar consumption 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
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.
Although preventable, it’s important to practice a good oral hygiene routine every day.
7. Visit the 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.
Make an appointment to see your Warrnambool dentist regularly.
