This year, the National Smile Month will celebrate its 40th birthday and businesses, dental practices and dental organisations will support the campaign to ensure its success.
A Friendly and Sincere Reminder
With the increasing rate of oral problems among children and adults in different parts of the UK, the yearly celebration of the National Smile Month serves as a reminder to take good care of our mouth. Our teeth and have gone through many things and the risks of periodontal diseases are always there. Lots of information about oral health care will be available to the public during the campaign.
The campaign encourages the Brits to think about their dental health and take steps to avoid teeth and gum problems in the future. Dental practices across Manchester and the entire United Kingdom, including Smylife, will hand out resources and educational materials. The National Smile Month promotes three key guidelines for better oral health:
- Using fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth twice a day
- Visiting the dentist for routine check-ups
- Reducing consumption of sugary foods and drinks
The organisers expect to reach and inspire more people. This year’s celebration will be successful with the help of loyal and new supporters. According to the Oral Health Foundation, the National Smile Month is among the reasons behind some of the biggest oral health improvements in the United Kingdom.
Supporters of the campaign are preparing a variety of events specifically designed for children and adults. So bring the whole family and have some fun. Learn how to keep your teeth healthy and your smile beautiful.
