World Cavity-Free Future Day
World Cavity-Free Future Day 2023 – October 14th
Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste is proven to be one of the most effective way to prevent cavities and tooth decay and recently the World Health Organisation (WHO) recognised fluoride toothpaste as an essential medicine. Despite this, some children and adults do not or cannot brush their teeth regularly.
For WCFFDay 2023 we want to highlight how important toothbrushing is throughout the life course. Establishing a healthy brushing routine using fluoride toothpaste with babies and infants, and maintaining that all through the rest of the life course, is crucial for keeping teeth healthy and cavity-free. Encouraging the right habits as early as possible is crucial to helping people maintain these healthy habits throughout the life course.
To support Chapters, volunteers and care teams, we created a series of free resources are available on this page below.
