March 20 – World Oral Health Day

Every year since March 20, 2008, at the initiative of the World Dental Federation – FDI, the World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated all over the world .

The purpose of this Day is to maximally focus public attention on global problems related to dental health, to raise awareness among politicians, doctors, public figures and the general population about approaches to prevention, early detection and treatment of oral diseases, as well as about risk factors leading to their development . After all, the overwhelming majority of the world’s population, almost every one of us, has faced dental problems in one way or another throughout our life, but many of these problems could have been avoided by doing prevention from an early age.

Since 2015, having appreciated the importance and relevance of this project, the Indian Dental Association has included World Oral Health Day.

World Oral Health Day is an international day that proclaims the importance of oral health for people of all ages in all countries of the world. This day has become one of the most important events in world dentistry and is considered the day of proclaiming the basic values ​​that every dentist brings to his patients.

The main goal of this day is to draw the attention of people of all ages to how much dental health means in their lives, to inform about primary prevention measures, and also to help form motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle. In terms of maintaining dental health, this is, first of all, training in proper oral care, timely access to the dentist at the first symptoms, as well as a visit to the dentist for preventive purposes.

According to the official statistics of the WHO, about 90% of people in the
world suffer from inflammatory diseases of periodontal tissues, and carious lesions occur in almost every person during their life (in 60-90% of people already at school age).
A beautiful and snow-white smile is not only an indicator of good
mood, but also an indicator of health.
