A Super Speedy Nation Smile Month Run-Down
National Smile Month seems to have popped up out of nowhere this year!
Now, again, this campaign is UK-based, but we don’t see why we can’t all embrace this reminder to put our oral health first and foremost.
Good dental habits can help us to keep our teeth for life by preventing oral care issues like decay and gum disease. They can also reduce the risk of developing certain cancers, as well as some forms of dementia.
Beyond that, healthy gums can lead to a safer pregnancy and delivery for expectant mothers.
On a much more superficial level, keeping our teeth clean and cared for lowers the odds of being plagued with bad breath and tooth stains.
And remember that simply flashing a grin can lead to a happier, healthier you!
