World Oral Health Day
World Oral Health Day
What is WOHD?
World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated every year on 20 March. It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of oral hygiene to looking after everyone old and young.

Why is WOHD Important?
Because 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime and many of them can be avoided with increased governmental, health association and society support and funding for prevention, detection and treatment programmes.

In addition, World Oral Health Day offers the dental and oral health community a platform to take action and help reduce the overall disease burden.

What is the theme for 2016 WOHD?
WOHD 2016 aims to get everyone to recognise the impact their oral health has on overall physical health and wellbeing to help inspire this change, the overall campaign focuses on :

Healthy mouth. Healthy body



Some keys to a Healthy Mouth-Healthy Body are:
Brush twice a day with a Fluoridated Toothpaste and a Soft Toothbrush. (See below for helpful tips)

Floss daily to clean the bacteria that accumulate between your teeth. (See below for helpful tips)

Have regular dental checkups to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. (Visit your dentist)

Ensure you have a well balanced diet and drink plenty of water. (Speak to a doctor or dietician)

Enjoy a healthy level of exercise and fitness. (Do something you enjoy like walking, playing sport etc)
