Did you know that we celebrate World Oral Health Day in March? Here at Dentapex, it’s a time when we encourage our patients to think about their oral health more closely and to consider if they can improve it.
Good oral health is about far more than just having a healthy smile as it is crucial for protecting your overall health. When you have a healthy mouth, it reduces your risk of developing serious health problems, including diabetes and heart disease. Having a healthy mouth makes it far easier to eat nutritious food to keep your body and immune system functioning correctly, so you can fight illness more effectively.
This month we hope you will pledge to look after your mouth and always to brush your teeth at least twice a day, even when you are busy or tired. We also hope that you make time to come and see us for your regular checkups and cleans. Proper preventative dental care is the easiest and most cost-effective way to maintain a healthy mouth. When we can check your mouth regularly, we can soon detect any changes to your oral health and can provide the best treatments more quickly. The sooner we can treat signs of oral disease, the more effectively we can protect and preserve your teeth and gums. Your mouth is amazing, and by working with you, we can help keep it that way.
