Your oral health is crucial in maintaining your own physical health and wellbeing. Many people believe they simply need to brush and floss daily and avoid eating sugar. But oral health is more complex than practising good oral hygiene and eating right. Your entire mouth, including your teeth, tongue, and gums require proper care every day – no compromises.
Unfortunately, the number of oral diseases continues to rise in the country. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, about 72,000 patients in 2017-18 were hospitalised due to undetected or untreated dental conditions.
