April Is Oral Health Month!
The month of April is Oral Health Month. What a perfect opportunity to focus on oral health and the impact it has on our overall well-being.
When it comes to chronic disease prevention, oral health is just as important as eating healthy, staying active, and avoiding tobacco. Poor oral health has the potential to result in chronic issues such as respiratory, cardiovascular, and brain diseases, diabetes, and cancer.
Though some are preventable, oral diseases are quite common across Canada. To mitigate risk, regular flossing and brushing, and visiting your dental office regularly for check-ups and cleanings is necessary. Avoiding sugary foods, beverages, alcohol, tobacco, and e-cigarettes, will also mitigate risk of disease and help ensure teeth stay healthy.
This April we take the opportunity to emphasize the importance of oral health. However, oral health should be a focus every month of the year to maintain overall well-being.
Remember that good oral health habits start at home and we encourage you to visit us once a year for a full checkup and examination. Oral health is closely tied to your overall health and wellness and often we can identify issues before they become problems.
We are always welcoming patients looking for a new dental family. If you would like to book a checkup or if you have any dental questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our team.
See you soon!
