March 20th is the international day to celebrate World Oral Health Day. This year’s theme is “It all starts here. Healthy mouth. Healthy body.

There is growing research that shows the links between oral disease with other medical health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and dementia. Improving overall health and wellbeing through regular physical activities is beneficial to the health of the teeth and gums. And vice versa, maintaining good oral health by having regular dental check-ups and preventive dental care can improve your general health and wellbeing.

So when was your last dental check-up? Contact our dental team today at (03) 9041 5301 to arrange a consultation with one of our dentists or oral health therapists.
