Gum Health Day
Gum Health Day is an international awareness initiative held every May 12. The aim is to increase public awareness of just how severe gum disease can be, the health problems associated with it, and the importance of keeping our gums strong and healthy.
Here at Perio and Implants Dental Referral Centre, we would like to remind people that gum health is critical for overall well-being throughout life.
As gum disease has become a public health concern, it is linked to severe conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and cerebrovascular disease.
Your gum health is relatively easy to maintain by regularly cleaning and visiting the dental hygienist. This will help prevent many more serious conditions and help to prolong life.
Gum Health Day 2022 is the ninth EFP-promoted annual awareness day implemented by the EFP-affiliated societies of periodontology. This initiative is now global in its reach and impact.
