Why is oral health is important?

Normally, the body's natural defenses and good oral health care, such as brushing your teeth and flossing daily, keep bacteria under control. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that could cause oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. A healthy mouth can be a big advantage. Our teeth have a very important role to play in our lives.

They help us chew and digest food, they help us to speak and speak clearly, and they also shape our face. Paying for needed oral health care is one of the main reasons for catastrophic health expenditures, increasing the risk of impoverishment and economic hardship. The resolution affirms that oral health must be firmly integrated into the non-communicable disease agenda and that oral health interventions must be included in universal health coverage programs.
