Dental Health Week (6 to 12 August) is the Australian Dental Association’s major annual oral health promotion event, and this year it comes with the semi-cheeky slogan, “Watch Your Mouth”.
The aim of the week is to educate Australians about the importance of maintaining good oral health by promoting four key messages:
- Brush teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste
- Clean in-between teeth once a day (with floss or interdental brushes)
- Eat a healthy balanced diet and limit sugar intake
- Regularly visit the dentist for check-ups and preventive treatment.
