About this event
Poor oral health is largely preventable. There are steps we can all take to protect the oral health of ourselves and others to prevent poor outcomes in our oral cavity, which includes hard tissue (teeth and bone) as well as the soft tissue (gums, cheeks, tongue, floor of the mouth, lips, palate, and throat).
Taking these steps help prevent the need for dental intervention and protect oral health between routine dental surveillance and check-ups.
Poor oral health can lead to pain, dis-comfort and even tooth extraction.
Improving dental health requires a whole systems approach. Whilst local authorities have a lead statutory role in improving the oral health of their local population, everyone has a part to play.
