National smile month is a campaign that was set up to promote oral health and is run throughout the months of May/June. We here are active participants in the campaign and promote the three key messages.
The three key messages that national smile month concentrates on informing people about are :
Brush your teeth last thing at night and also on one other occasion with a toothpaste that contains Fluoride
Cut down on the frequency you consume sugary foods and drinks
Visit your dentist regularly, as often as you are recommended to visit.
We also like to pass on some of the fun facts that the National smile campaign promote as we find them really interesting for example, did you know that approximately only half of us brush our tongue when brushing even though it significantly reduces the amount of bacteria in our mouth! Some 61% of us have been attracted to someone by their smile alone and lastly, did you know it takes 43 muscles to frown but only 17 to smile 🙂
