World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated on 20 March yearly.
It is a day to promote good oral health for everyone and empower individuals to maintain a healthy mouth at all ages.
We all suffer from certain types of oral conditions which can be avoided with increased awareness, support, and funding for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment programs, which is what World Oral Health Day is all about.
“Be Proud of Your Mouth” has been announced as the World Oral Health Day theme for the years 2021–2023.
7 Key Oral Health Messages for World Oral Health Day
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.
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.
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.
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.
Practice a Good Hygiene Routine
Visit your Fortitude Valley Dentist Regularly
Oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people and are often linked to other serious health issues that often lead to pain, discomfort, social isolation, loss of self-confidence, and lost hours at work or school too.
