Why you should visit your dentist for National Smile Month
When was the last time you paid a visit to your dentist? Whether you can’t find the time or you’re struggling with dental anxiety, it’s still crucial to book regular appointments. As it’s National Smile Month, we don’t think there’s ever been a better time to get your smile squeaky clean and sparkling with a trip to the dentist. Here are a few reasons why you should pick up the phone and book an appointment today.
What is National Smile Month?
National Smile Month raises awareness around good dental hygiene and the positive impact of a healthy smile. It was set up by the Oral Health Foundation, which recognised there was a need to encourage people to visit their dentist. With up to 39% of adults in the UK failing to have regular check-ups, it’s clear to see why!
Reduce the risk
You’re far more likely to spot those early signs of gum disease, oral cancer and tooth decay with regular trips to the dentist. From small black spots on your teeth to receding gums, a dentist will spot the warning signs a mile off. If you’ve noticed lumps or other changes to your mouth on your own, it’s time to get down to your dentist for a quick checkup.
Pick up tips
If you want the perfect smile, oral hygiene should be at the very top of your priorities. Who better to pick up tips from than the dentist? Whether you’re unsure about your toothpaste or you want to know how you could improve your dental routine, Pure Smiles dentists are here to help. We can also give you specific recommendations suited to your own teeth and gums and suggest a variety of treatments that could improve your smile.

Start a trend
Been a bit lazy when it comes to visiting your dentist? There’s no better time to get in touch than National Smile Month. Adults should head to the dentist at least every six months while booking additional appointments for any abnormalities you may notice now and again. Getting back on track with your dentist could kick your oral hygiene back into gear and give your smile that extra boost.
