Celebrate World Oral Health Day with Your Goose Creek Dentist

Posted on by admin

World Oral Health Day

Every year the World Dental Federation (FDI) sponsors World Oral Health Day to promote awareness on the effects a healthy mouth has on a healthy body. Everyone at my Goose Creek dental office wants to do our part and share some of connections between your dental health and whole body health.

“Do We Really Need a Day Dedicated to Oral Health?”

In short, yes, we really do. Here’s why. 90% of the world’s population will be diagnosed with dental disease at least once in their lifetime. That’s a huge number and the main reason behind the World Oral Health Day. Many of the diseases that will affect most of us are preventable. But only if we spread the knowledge. By joining together and educating each other on the importance of dental health not only for the mouth’s sake, but for the whole body too, we can cut that number down.

It All Starts Here. Healthy Mouth. Healthy Body.

That’s this year’s theme for World Oral Health Day, and we couldn’t agree more. Dental health is just as important to an overall healthy body as eating right, working out, and avoiding dangerous habits like smoking. In fact, some whole-body diseases can be linked to oral health concerns. For example, research on patients with gum disease shows a probable link between it and heart disease, respiratory disease, some cancers, and diabetic issues.

Know the Signs

If you recognize any of these signs in your mouth, we encourage you to see your dentist in Goose Creek as soon as possible.

Take Action

Now is the time to take care of your smile, and your body. We welcome you to start right here at my dental office in Goose Creek. Regular exams and professional cleanings are some of the most important parts of getting and maintaining a healthy mouth. They also allow us to find any problems early. And early detection means you get the care you need faster. Your mouth, and your body, will thank you.
