On 20th March, people around the world unite to observe World Oral Health Day and raise awareness against oral health issues and oral hygiene. These include cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, chipped teeth, plaque build-up, oral cancer, etc. The burden of oral diseases affects people, health systems, and economies everywhere.
This day recognizes the importance of optimal oral health in maintaining general health and well-being.
The theme for World Oral Health Day for the next three years is simple but powerful: ‘Be proud of your mouth’. Empower your self and the people around you with the knowledge and tools to ensure good oral health.
