Oral Health… that is a healthy mouth, is vital for both physical and emotional wellbeing.
The state of your oral health can affect an individual’s appearance, interpersonal relations, diet, nutrition and speech.
It’s essential that your team practice good oral hygiene in order to maintain a healthy mouth and in turn a healthy body. An unhealthy mouth can lead to several secondary conditions that affect the rest of the body, including diabetes, heart disease, pneumonia and more.
The good news is that most oral diseases are preventable.

PRACTICING REGULAR GOOD ORAL HYGIENE
Establishing good oral health with hygiene and dietary habits will lead to enhanced physical and emotional wellbeing throughout life.
So, what is good oral hygiene?
- Brushing your teeth twice daily;
- Flossing daily; and
- Regular check-ups with your dentist.
MANAGING LIFESTYLE RISKS
You can protect your oral health and prevent other secondary conditions by avoiding certain risk factors, including smoking, alcohol, poor oral hygiene and an unhealthy diet.
Smoking not only causes bad breath and stained teeth, it also places you at an increased risk of gum disease and oral cancer. Quitting smoking reduces the risk of oral cancer and gum disease and can halt the progress of gum disease.
Go easy on the booze
Excessive alcohol consumption can cause dehydration and dry mouth, which in turn can form tooth decay. The high sugar and acidity levels in alcoholic drinks can also cause tooth decay. High alcohol use can also increase the risk of oral cancer.
Have a balanced diet
An unhealthy diet can have an adverse effect on your oral health. The excessive amounts of sugar that are found in processed food, soft drinks and snacks can be a risk factor for oral disease.
