Regular visitors to City Dental will already know we are passionate about helping patients achieve their very best level of oral health. During March, we celebrate World Oral Health Day, during which dental health professionals pledge to inspire their patients to look after their mouth correctly. Despite the efforts of dental professionals, many people suffer from gum disease and tooth decay, both of which are preventable. Both these diseases can have a serious impact on dental health, making it tricky to eat comfortably and embarrassing to talk and smile with others. Also, it’s becoming increasingly evident that poor oral health affects overall health, and it’s linked with many serious problems that include cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, dementia and diabetes.

This month we hope people will take a few moments to think about their oral health, making sure they don’t take it for granted. It’s so important for helping you to enjoy life fully, so this March, if you haven’t seen a dentist for a while, make that appointment to come and see us. Our dedicated dental team can work with you, helping you achieve your healthiest and best smile. The nice thing about good oral health is that once you have it, it’s reasonably easy to maintain it and we can show you how.
