World Oral Health Day 2021 theme: Be Proud of Your Mouth. Value and take care of it.
At EK Dental Surgery, we want to focus on the importance of oral health for overall health since good oral health can help you live a long and healthier life.
That is something worth taking action for.
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 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 helpful to dental health as it helps neutralise plaque acids.
#3. Learn Good Oral Health Habits for Children
It is important to care for your child’s 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 health problems can impact every aspect of life, from relationships and self-confidence through to school, work and the ability to interact with others.
Oral diseases can be prevented, so it’s important to practice a good oral hygiene routine every day.
#7. Visit your Glen Waverley Dentist Regularly
Oral diseases are often associated with 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 sure to visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleans.
