Celebrating World Oral Health Day: What Is It and What Does It Mean for You?

Celebrating World Oral Health Day: What Is It and What Does It Mean for You?

Did you know we celebrate World Oral Health Day every March and this year it’s on March 20? It’s a day when we hope people spend a few moments thinking about their oral health and what it means to them. Most of us tend to take oral health for granted until we develop dental problems, so this day is an ideal opportunity to consider ways to improve your oral care routine. Here at Casey Dental, March is a month where we hope to inspire our patients to look after their mouths and to think about how it affects general health too.

When you have a healthy mouth, it helps you in so many ways, allowing you to eat without discomfort and pain and to speak and smile with confidence. But, good oral health protects your overall health, reducing the risk of developing serious diseases like cardiovascular disease and diabetes or of these diseases worsening when they are already present. Even though tooth decay and gum disease are common, these conditions are preventable. Our dedicated dental team work hard to educate our patients so everyone can enjoy excellent dental health year-round, not just on World Oral Health Day.
