Sunday 20th March marked World Oral Health Day – designed to highlight and promote the importance of our dental and oral health. This year’s theme was ‘Healthy Mouth. Healthy Body’ and focused on the vital link between good oral hygiene and its effect on our general health.
This is an important lesson that many of us don’t pay enough heed to. The state of your oral health can actually have a massive bearing on our overall physical health. In light of this years’ campaign we’d like to take a look at some of the most significant ways that your dental health contributes to your overall wellbeing.
