Why mouth care really does matter?

Healthy Teeth Awareness

Do you have a healthy smile?

Good oral health is important to be able to eat and drink comfortably to speak and smile with confidence and to be free of pain and discomfort. The mouth contains millions of bacteria, both good and bad. In the absence of regular mouth care, the number of harmful bacteria multiplies, and this can have an effect on the rest of the body.

Oral bacteria are the cause of the two most common dental diseases, dental decay and gum disease. Disease generally occurs when ineffective, tooth brushing or an absence of tooth brushing leads to a buildup of bacteria in the mouth commonly known as plaque. Gums bacteria or toxins produced by bacteria can be absorbed into the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body. There's strong evidence linking gum, disease and heart disease. 

There's evidence linking poor oral health to a number of other general health conditions, including stroke, dementia, premature birth and some types of cancer.

Don’t think this could ever happen to you?

"Well think again, because millions of us are risking the health of our teeth by failing to give them the care and attention they deserve."



Good oral hygiene is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Here are some tips to help you maintain good oral health:

Brush your teeth

twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle circular motions.


Floss daily

to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth.


Visit your dentist regularly

for cleanings and check-ups. Most dentists recommend scheduling appointments every six months.


Eat a healthy diet

that is low in sugary snacks and drinks. Choose foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.


Avoid tobacco products,

which can cause tooth stains, gum disease, and oral cancer. 

Avoid alcohol

Smokers and those that drink excessive amounts of alcohol are up to 30 times more likely to get mouth cancer than those that don't.
