This campaign aims to promote an early start to good oral health by nipping bad habits in the bud with best practices. Developing an understanding of how to look after your mouth, teeth and gums from a young age is important, however, a third of parents globally find it difficult to get their children to clean their teeth regularly1. With 60–90% of schoolchildren and almost all adults suffering from tooth decay worldwide2, it’s more important than ever to instil good brushing routines early on and understand how lifestyle choices can have a detrimental impact.
“The scenario in Malaysia is similar, with 70% of teenagers aged 15-19 having dental caries while more than 90% of adults from their mid-20s to old age have dental caries3. Thus, it is important to instil strong dental health practices in children so the health of their teeth will not deteriorate when they get older, so often is the case,” added Mr Muhammad Ali.
At the heart of its partnership with the FDI World Dental Federation, Philips Sonicare aims to help bring top of mind recall for the information people should know about their oral health, through an infographic on the “Top Ten Facts on Oral Health”. This is to help people easily use the information to make better choices and build healthier habits for long-term health and wellness.
“The condition of one’s mouth is reflective of what goes on inside their body. Health of the mouth and body should not be regarded as two separate entities with different levels of care, rather, it is a two-way relationship and both shouldn’t be taken lightly in ensuring one’s general good health,” concluded Mr Muhammad Ali.
