This year, these important messages will be reinforced with a little cheeky humour via the tagline “Watch Your Mouth”.
Tempting though it is to think everyone is watching their mouth and practising good oral health, the reality is that many Australians are not fully heeding these messages.
- 65% of Australians haven’t seen a dentist in the last two years
- 50% of Australians brushing their teeth only once-a-day
- Nearly 40% never flossing or cleaning between their teeth
- 73% of young people (14-18 years) are consuming too much sugar
All of which means that getting the message out there about good oral health is more important than ever!
This whole week we will be posting facts and advice about brushing, diet, flossing and the importance of good oral health, so stay tuned! Since the best oral care education occurs face to face, why not book in to see us for an exam and clean?
