World Health Day is coming up on 7 April 2019, and it’s the ideal opportunity to remind ourselves why we need to make our dental health a top priority.
Did you know that a healthy smile is the very first thing that people notice when they meet somebody new? It’s just as important to adopt a good dental care routine as it is to exercise regularly and to eat a nutritious diet.
As dentists, we see your mouth as being a window to your overall state of health, and we find that patients who step up their efforts to look after their teeth and gums also start to think more carefully about how they’re treating the rest of their body.
If you work to improve your standard of dental health, you’ll soon see that your whole body will benefit from your choices. For example, if you cut down on your sugar intake, with the aim of protecting your teeth from decay, then you’ll also prevent blood sugar spikes, boost your energy levels, see an improvement in your skin, sleep better, and most likely lose weight.
At Honour Health, we conduct a comprehensive Dental Health Assessment, which includes:
- Mouth cancer risk assessment and screening
- Gum check and gum disease risk assessment
- Tooth decay check and tooth decay risk assessment
- Tooth wear check
- X-rays (if required)
- Jaw joint, muscles and neck glands check
- Cheek, tongue and throat check
- Fillings and dental work check
After we complete your assessment, we’ll provide you with detailed advice based on your diet, oral hygiene routine, lifestyle, health status and requirements.
If you join our Honour Health Club, you’ll receive two Dental Health Assessments each year, and at least two state of the art Honour Diamond Airflow hygiene treatments each year, as well as the flexibility of Saturday and weekday evening appointments, up to 20% off treatments, and much more.
In honour of World Health Day, make sure you honour your dental health by putting a healthy smile at the top of your agenda.
Book an appointment for your next Dental Health Assessment via our online booking system or call your chosen practice.
