What is the Significance of World Oral Health Day?

Our mouth is an amazing thing. It helps us to speak, eat, and even smile. It does a lot for us. The World Oral Health Day aims to look after your oral health and inspire your friends, family, relatives and others to do the same. No matter what our age is, taking good care of our oral health should be one of our top priorities. And not just because our mouth helps us look and eat good, but because it also connects with our body.

Over millions of people suffer some kind of oral disease is it tooth decay, gum disease, cavities, bad breath, etc. We have been hearing since our childhood that we should brush our teeth twice a day, and also make a visit to a dentist every six months – but how many of us follow it?

It is very important to look after our mouth, and when it matters the most, and not when it gets too late. The observance of World Oral Health Day is a year-long campaign which aims to raise awareness against the required oral health care and hygiene.

There are seminars, free-consultation programmes, workshops etc. that are organised across the world. Children in schools and other educational institutions are given advice and suggestions on how they should look after their teeth in a better manner.

As March 20 nears, we at LatestLY, wish you all a very “Happy World Oral Health Day 2020”, and hope you do pay attention to your oral health care, and soon.
