What’s your oral health pledge?
Since 2013 World Oral Health Day has been celebrated on 20 March, having originally been celebrated in September from its launch in 2007. With a specific theme each year, World Oral Health Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health and how to maintain an effective routine
Say ahh: unite for mouth health in 2020
‘Your mouth is amazing! It helps you eat, speak and smile confidently’
World Oral Health Day 2020
In 2020, it’s all about uniting for mouth health! Why not make a pledge to celebrate World Oral Health Day this year and improve your oral health too?
It could be as simple as pledging to visit the dentist twice a year for regular check-ups or registering your whole family at the dentist to ensure everyone’s oral health is being looked after or making sure you change your toothbrush at least every 3 months.

Your regular oral health routine
It’s easy to take your health for granted, especially when you’re feeling fit and healthy. Did you know that according to the FDI World Dental Federation, 90% of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime – many of which can be prevented with a regular, effective oral hygiene routine?
Here are our top tips for a great oral health routine:
Brush teeth twice a day, every day
Change your toothbrush - or toothbrush head if you're an electric toothbrush fan - at least every 3 months
See your dentist for a check-up every 6 months
Minimise sugary snacks and drinks between meals
Include regular interdental cleaning in your routine to minimise gum disease
