National Smile Month
Today sees the start of National Smile Month which runs until 13th June 2019. National Smile Month is the run by the Oral Health Foundation and aims to improve the UK’s oral Health and raise awareness of important health issues. There are three easy key messages which everyone can adopt to maintain a healthy mouth.
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
- Cut down on sugary foods and drinks.
- Visit the dentist regularly.
The Mouth Cancer Foundation is supporting this initiative from our colleagues at the Oral Health Foundation and is also urging everyone to look after their oral health by either checking their own mouths or visiting their dentist to undergo a routine dental check which should include a mouth cancer screening.
