World Oral Health Day

20.03.2017

Today is the international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health.

For all the debate about hidden ingredients in our everyday foods, sugar has remained curiously unresearched - even though it's present in nearly all our foods and can, if eaten in too large quantities, seriously damage our health.

In today’s on-the-go culture, convenience food and ready-meals are high in demand. Most people like to graze in between meals; unfortunately these are not always the healthiest option.

A few tips on regulating your snack habits from the D&T team:
- 2 snacks a day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon
- Avoid sweets such as chewy sweets as they spend more time sticking to the surface of your teeth.
- Recognise how often you are buying snacks
- Drink more water
- Indulge in calcium-rich foods, such as low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese.
- Vegetables for vitamins A and C, and for chewing in order to promote healthy gums.
- Reading labels and choosing carefully

In most babies, teeth start to emerge through the gums when they are around six months old. Some babies may start earlier, others not until 12 months.
