World Oral Health Day

March 20th is World Oral Health Day. Today’s focus is on reminding young and old about the importance of protecting the teeth and mouth throughout life!  According to the World Oral Health Day site, “This year we are focusing on the importance of our teeth and mouth in our everyday lives. Eating, chewing, kissing, these are all everyday actions for which we need to maintain good oral health.” stated Dr. Tin Chun Wong, FDI President.

According to Voxy, “over 90% of the world’s population will suffer some form of dental disease in their lifetime but many of these can easily be treated or prevented with a good oral health care routine and accessible services.”  As part of World Oral Health Day, the following messages are being promoted:

  • Brush twice a day
  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Spit don’t rinse
  • Regular check-ups
  • Drink milk or water
  • Healthy snacks = healthy teeth
