Our 5 Keys to Healthy Teeth

20/03 – World Oral Health Day
Live Mouth Smart

World Oral Day is today, March 20, and it’s time to “Live Mouth Smart” by brushing up on your hygienic know-how. After all, our teeth are essential. They help us to smile, laugh and talk - gestures we oftentimes take for granted.

Do you know why we celebrate World Oral Health Day today?
Healthy adults should have a total of 32 teeth and 0 dental cavities, which can be digitally translated as 3/20, and then interpreted as March 20th – voila!

Even if at LEBON we believe it is important to think about oral health daily, today is the perfect day to take a moment to consider if our dental health could use some improvement and register how it impacts our overall health.


A healthy mouth and a healthy body go hand in hand.

Your mouth is a mirror that reflects your general health and wellbeing. Maintaining a fit mouth means better overall health and quality of life. These steps include avoiding risk factors, adopting good oral hygiene habits, and attending regular dental check-ups.

To celebrate healthy smiles and laughs across the globe, we want to share some smart tips to keep your smile in tip-top shape for a lifetime. And don’t worry, as it’s never too early or too late to start looking after your mouth. Your body will thank you. 

 

  • Practice a 2 +1 regimen. Get in the habit and stay in the habit of brushing twice a day (or 3, after each meal) and flossing once a day.
    And don’t forget to switch to a new toothbrush every three months.

  • Practice healthy nutrition habits. Your teeth and gums will thank you for adopting a well-balanced diet. Be a smart eater.

  • Drink water. Water continues to be the best beverage for your overall health, including oral health. Drinking water after every meal can help wash out some of the remaining food.

  • Limit sugary and acidic foods. Give up the soft drinks. The bacteria in your mouth love sugar because they feed off of it and then produce acids that weaken your teeth’s enamel. While you don't have to avoid all sugary foods altogether, it doesn't hurt to be mindful.

  • Visit your dentist. Make an appointment with your dentist at least once a year for a general check-up. That way, any plaque that you haven’t been able to take care of will be removed.
