Philips & FDI

 

Royal Philips has united with FDI World Dental Federation for a second year to celebrate World Oral Health Day (WOHD), March 20th, 2017 and raise awareness of the importance of good oral health throughout life. Together they will support the 2017 campaign ‘Live Mouth Smart'.

 

Philips understands the importance of instilling good oral hygiene routines from an early age that continue through life to help prevent long-term health issues. We know that good oral health goes beyond a healthy smile and has wider implications for overall health. Our ambition is to help patients improve their oral healthcare and WOHD is a great platform to communicate this.

Poor oral hygiene continues to be a global challenge with 60–90% of schoolchildren and nearly 100% of adults have tooth decay. Our mission at Philips is to improve people’s lives and with over a century of healthcare expertise and 25 years in oral health care we are committed to delivering complete and cutting-edge oral care solutions. This World Oral Health Day we’re helping patients of all ages recognize the importance of looking after their mouth, teeth and gums; ultimately to achieve better longer-term care, leading to a healthier life.''

This year’s campaign ‘Live Mouth Smart’ empowers people to take control of their oral health – throughout life – so they can enjoy a healthy, functional mouth from childhood into old age. 

 

It conveys the message that by making smart decisions such as adopting good oral hygiene habits, avoiding risk factors and having a regular dental check-up, they can help prevent oral disease.

 

You can get involved and help your patients Live Mouth Smart. There is a brochure available with tips for your patients on how to Live Mouth Smart. Next to that you can download the campaign poster and infographic with easily digestible data and statistics.

25 years of Philips Sonicare

 

Born as a result of personal motivation, namely the threat of pain resulting from dental disease, the Sonicare idea was developed.

 

It was based on having a very high level of acceleration at the bristle tips, 1000 times that of the forces of gravity, that was able to easily disintegrate plaque. This is what became known as Sonic technology.

 

Today, Philips has over 20 years of experience delivering successful and meaningful innovation to consumers and dental professionals, empowering dental professionals to improve their patient’s oral health and to live mouth smart.
