‘A Happy Mouth is....... a Happy Body’

Your oral health affects how healthy and well you feel overall

The health of your mouth is connected to the health of your body. Bacteria in your mouth can spread to other parts of your body, which may cause other diseases.

Taking care of your mouth is really important for your whole body because it can affect and be affected by different health problems.

Keeping your mouth clean with good oral hygiene habits can make a big difference in how healthy your mouth is and can also help lessen the effects of oral diseases on other health issues you might have.

Tips for good oral health!

Which tips will you be trying as part of your daily routine to help take care of your mouth?

Brush longer – to keep your teeth stronger!

Brushing your teeth for 2 minutes gives you time to brush all the sides and surfaces of your teeth and gums and helps you set up a brushing routine!

Skip the sweets to protect your teeth!

By limiting your sugary foods and drinks you can help protect your teeth, reducing your risk of tooth decay!

Spit don’t rinse!

By not rinsing out the toothpaste, fluoride remains on your teeth for longer, helping to protect against tooth decay.

The best care is in the dental chair

Visiting a dental professional can help with dental problems early before they become more serious!
