With poor oral health currently affecting nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide and more than 530 million children suffering from tooth decay in their primary teeth, World Oral Health Day, celebrated on 20th March, is key in raising awareness on the importance of keeping our mouth healthy for a better overall quality of life. With this in mind, the International Sweeteners Association (ISA) is proud to renew its support to the FDI World Dental Federation in the celebration of World Oral Health Day, with a dedicated animated video to promote good oral health.

In fact, an unhealthy mouth can severely impact every aspect of our everyday life, from chewing to swallowing, as well as talking, smiling, and even our physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. On the other hand, the good news is that while tooth decay is the most common health condition in the world, dental caries and most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages. This is why it is very important for every one of us to look after our oral health, for our happiness and overall well-being.
With this in mind, the ISA is proud to release a new animated video, developed in support of WOHD 2022 and of its key messages, aiming to further promote information from the FDI World Dental Federation for WOHD and the role that low/no calorie sweeteners can play in good oral health.

While excess sugar consumption can contribute to the development of dental caries, unlike free sugars and other carbohydrates, low/no calorie sweeteners are not fermentable, which means they cannot cause dental caries or compromise oral health. As such, they can fit well within a tooth-friendly diet and have the benefits of adding sweetness and replacing sugars not only in food, drink and sugar-free chewing gum, but also in personal care products such as toothpaste and mouth washes.
