National Smile Month 2020

Monday, June 8, 2020


Raise Awareness of Positive Oral Health

Fun activities to spread the word amongst your community about the importance of maintaining a healthy smile. Get involved today!

It’s National Smile Month in the UK, as the Oral Health Foundation is running a campaign to champion the benefits of having a beaming, healthy smile. From the 18th May to the 18thJune,2020, the charity invites you to contribute and make a difference to millions of people by spreading the word about positive oral health.


Why Support National Smile Month?

Oral health is an important component of a person’s overall wellbeing. When you have healthy teeth, you’ll be less prone to other infections or medical disorders, which is why it’s so important to look after your teeth.

Maintaining a healthy smile can be simple if you commit to brushing your teeth twice a day, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and treatment where necessary. Yet, inequalities still exist which prevent people from accessing the care they need. By supporting National Smile Month, you’ll be making a fantastic contribution by spreading the word about oral health within your community.

Looking After Your Own Teeth

As part of National Smile Month, the Oral Health Foundation is delivering key advice on how to look after your teeth. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and committing to using dental floss and mouthwash as part of your daily routine. An Invisalign Essex team explains that realignment treatment can also be essential in correcting any problems with wonky teeth and can help transform your smile into a beamer.

Diet and Your Teeth

What you choose to eat and drink has an incredible impact on the condition of your teeth, with sugar playing a defining role in your dental health. Use National Smile Month to try and cut down on the volume of sugar you eat, along with how frequently you consume it. Sugar is known to react with the plaque on your teeth, which can be a major cause of tooth decay. By choosing a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and other vitamin-rich foods, instead of processed, sugar-laden treats, you’ll be moving away from the possibility of gum disease. Bad breath and eventual tooth loss are some of the side effects of gum disease, highlighting exactly why you need to ditch the sugar to focus on positive oral health.

Taking Part In National Smile Month

There are plenty of fantastic smile activities to take part in this month, and lockdown doesn’t need to halt any plans. By getting involved, and spreading the word on social media, you’ll be doing plenty to raise awareness of good oral health within your community.

You might choose to join the Smiley Singalong where you blast out any of your favourite songs so long as they include the word ‘smile’ in the title.

You could also swap out sugar from your diet this month and share your results on social media, using hashtags #Sugarswap and #Smilemonth to stay involved.

Finally, the Oral Health Foundation wants to collect smiles from around the world. You can simply take a photo of your smile to upload to your preferred social media platform, accompanied by your message card.
