We welcome you to March and want to remind you that a special global celebration is on its way: World Oral Health Day, happening on March 20th. Never heard of it? Well, that shouldn’t stop you from participating. It’s all about the world coming together to fight oral health problems and to promote education and excellent smile care. What can you do to play a role and keep your teeth and gums protected in honor of this day? Let’s talk about it.
Remember, You’re Not Alone
Take a moment on March 20th to recognize that the World Dental Federation has organized this moment to get our international community on board with raising awareness. Your oral health is important because oral disease can take a serious toll on everyone, from children to seniors. It’s not just you who needs to keep healthy teeth and gums. It’s every person on earth!
Remember Your Oral Systemic Health
What’s that mean? It’s in references to the relationship between your oral health and your overall well being. Don’t forget that your mouth is not a separate part of your body. It’s just one portion of your entire system! When you keep your oral tissues safe, you offer protection to your entire self! When you deal with problems like decay, infection, and periodontal disease, the consequences can impact your body in ways you never considered (one theory, for instance, is that gum disease can promote heart disease!). So, join the world in making your smile health one of your key priorities!
Keep Your Teeth Safe With Proper Care
Care for your teeth at home and don’t forget to come in for your cleanings and checkups, too, for optimal oral health. Learn more by scheduling a visit in Prairie Village, KS by calling Robert M Browne, DDS at (913) 901-8585.
