Go to the dentist before a sore tooth takes you there

The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) is launching a new campaign today to encourage Victorians to take control of their dental health by visiting a dentist regularly.

Only 50 per cent of Australians regularly visit the dentist, and tooth decay and gum disease are two of the most common health conditions affecting Australians.

'Frank the molar is here to remind you to take control of your dental health, and visit the dentist at least once a year,' said ADAVB President Dr Gitika Sanghvi.

'Along with brushing twice per day, flossing and reducing sugar consumption, regular dental visits are an important way to keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent disease. They provide an opportunity to detect problems early and prevent them from becoming worse.'
