‘Say NO to bleeding gums’
Gum Health Day is an international awareness day held every year on 12 May by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) to increase awareness on the seriousness of gum disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, or peri-implantitis) and how it can lead to tooth loss, problems with speaking and chewing, and can also compromise overall health and quality of life.
This awareness initiative encourages people with bleeding gums to consult their dentist or pharmacist and encompasses dozens of educational activities in more than 40 countries across the world.
This year, despite the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions on public events and people gathering, the EFP will still disseminate this important message “Say NO to bleeding gums" but digitally, with an online emphasis on videos and social media.
