There were days when a visit to a dentist was every child’s nightmare, and not just kids, even adults were terrified of it. Thanks to the advancement in technology, these visits aren’t so frightening anymore. This World Oral Health Day, Healthwire, aims to raise awareness about oral health issues and the importance of maintaining oral hygiene.
Brushing and flossing your teeth is the most basic yet essential thing that you can do to prevent oral health diseases. Everyone should visit a dentist twice a year for regular checkups. Dental treatments are quite expensive therefore preventing oral health problems by brushing and flossing your teeth properly, avoiding tobacco , alcohol and sugary items and paying a visit to your dentist once in a while is the most convenient option.
With innovation and development in technology, dentistry has been revolutionized. Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive and more comfortable alternative for a number of dental procedures such as treating hyper sensitivity, tooth decay and gum diseases. When compared to drills and other non-laser treatments, Laser dentistry is a lot less painful. It also lowers the chances of bacterial infection post treatment and the bleeding during the procedure is less.
The official theme of the 2019 World Oral Health Day campaign is ‘Say Ahh: Act on Mouth Health’ .Let us all pledge to be more conscious and pay attention to our oral health and encourage action in favor of good oral health.
