Between the 17 May and 17 June 2021 the Oral Health Foundation are raising awareness of important health issues and getting ready to put a smile on everybody’s face. Everyone at Evesham Dental Health Team on Broadway Road is proud to support National Smile Month!

Having good oral health is really important

A healthy smile doesn’t only benefit your mouth. It also helps us achieve better physical health and mental wellbeing. The good news is that a healthy mouth is easy to achieve.

Here are our top tips for great oral health

Brushing for two minutes when you wake up (before breakfast) and last thing at night with a fluoride toothpaste is key to maintaining good oral health.

Daily brushing is important because it removes plaque. If the plaque isn’t removed, it continues to build up, risking tooth decay and gum disease.

After we have brushed our teeth, we should spit out the toothpaste. At this point we might be tempted to rinse our mouth out but if we do, we’ll be washing away the preventive elements that continue to help protect our teeth.

Fluoride is the most important ingredient in toothpaste. It greatly helps oral health by strengthening the tooth enamel, making it more resistant to tooth decay.

Spitting out the excess toothpaste and not rinsing ensures the fluoride found in the majority of toothpastes will remain on the teeth and continue to be effective.

National Smile Month is the perfect time to evaluate your oral health, improve your routine and help others in your household do the same.

Got into bad habits?

If you, or someone you know, has got into some bad habits, it’s never too late for you to make a positive change and improve your oral health. What better time is there than during National Smile Month?
