Be Proud of Your Mouth. Value and take care of it.

7 Key Oral Health Messages from Dentist On Warrigal

World Oral Health Day 2022 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.

Look After Oral Health for Overall Health

Prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of oral problems 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.

Learn Good Oral Health Habits for Children

Care for your teeth and mouth because germs can cause toothache, tooth decay and holes in your teeth.

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.

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

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.

Visit your Cheltenham Dentist Regularly

Oral diseases 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.
