National Smile Month – The Perfect Time To Book Your Dental Check Up
Whilst maintaining good oral health is something we should aim for all year round, it is at this time of year in particular that everyone’s attention is on achieving the perfect smile. May 15th marks the start of National Smile Month, an initiative organised by the Oral Health Foundation to improve the UK’s oral health.
Activities take place up and down the country between 15th May and 15th June each year, to educate, motivate and communicate positive messages about maintaining healthy teeth and gums. At Belgrave House, we are strong believers in the power of National Smile Month to bring oral health professionals together and spread the word about how easy it really is to improve the quality of your smile.
Three key messages that #NSM17 seeks to promote are:
- The importance of brushing your teeth twice a day
- Limiting the intake of sugary foods and drinks
- Visiting your dentist regularly
Depending on the state of your overall oral health, we will advise you on how often you ought to be coming to see us for a dental check-up – generally this will be every six months but if you are having any particular problems it may be beneficial to visit more frequently just so we can keep an eye on your teeth and gums to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.
