Honor World Oral Health on March 20th

The Augusta Regional Dental Clinic will be honoring World Oral Health Day on March 20th!

Protect your mouth and body from early in life by:

  • eating a healthy diet low in sugar, high in fruits and vegetables
  • avoiding tobacco use
  • avoiding excessive alcohol consumption
  • adopting good oral hygiene habits
  • brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day, using either a manual or electric toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste
  • don’t rinse with water straight after brushing, spit out any excess toothpaste instead
  • rinse with a fluoride mouthwash or chew sugar-free gum after meals and snacks when brushing isn’t possible
  • clean between your teeth using floss or other interdental cleaners for additional benefits
  • wearing a mouthguard when engaging in contact sports
  • having regular dental check-ups


Preventive care is always the best option, so seek early detection and treatment to fight oral diseases and associated general health conditions.
