National Oral Health Month
September is national Oral Health Month – time to pay extra attention to your dental routine, particularly as two of the world’s most common health problems affect the mouth – cavities (dental caries) and gum disease.
Gum disease ranks second only to the common cold in terms of prevalence, with an estimated 90% of South Africans experiencing the problem at some point.
It really is in your best interest to practice good oral hygiene. Not only does it ensure a beautiful smile, but it is good for your health – gum disease has been linked to coronary heart disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes and diabetes. And new research also shows that women with gum disease find it harder to conceive.
