The UK’s leading oral health charity is urging people to change their attitudes towards their teeth and dentists, or risk losing their ‘Smile factor’ forever.
The British Dental Health Foundation has spent the last month promoting good oral health as part of its National Smile Month campaign. However, the Foundation believes the nation is still not making oral health a priority and people generally need to adopt a different attitude to their teeth and oral care if they are to keep their ‘Smile Factor’ – the theme of this year’s campaign.
The Foundation is asking the public to look again at their oral care and has published a new ten point checklist designed to challenge and change attitudes towards their teeth.
1. Make prevention a priority: Cosmetic dentistry improvements and techniques have the potential to make a huge difference to the way teeth look, yet preventing your teeth and oral health from deteriorating is the best way to keep your ‘Smile Factor’. Visiting your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend, and maintaining a good oral health regime is a more simple solution.
2. Pamper your teeth: Invest and spend as much…
3. Don’t fear your dentist..7. Give up smoking…10. Count your smiles and kisses: Smiling is infectious and can make a huge difference to our personalities and relationships. If you can share and receive at least 25 smiles a day, we think you’ll help boost your ‘Smile Factor’. With great oral health you’ll also have the confidence to get up close and personal with friends and loved ones, to share a caring kiss, just in time for National Kissing Day on 21 June 20111….”Following these ten tips will not only give you good all-round oral health, they will give you a renewed energy and the confidence to portray your smile on a daily basis.”…read more
