Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks Campaign 2019

System Launches Gum Health Check Awareness Campaign to help improve Malaysian Oral Health, a Collaboration with the Malaysian Dental Association. 
Are you among the 94% of Malaysian adults with gum disease if you unsure, visit for a free online assessment that can help you achieve healthy gum and teeth for life. The free gum health check website is part of Systema"s Gumbatte towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks awareness and education campaign 2019, a collaboration with the Malaysian Dental Association.

The campaign aims to help Malaysian achieve better oral health outcomes with the ultimate goal of motivating more people to retain 20 of their natural teeth when they are 60 years and above so that they can enjoy better health expectancy, in line with the Ministry of Health's goals. The ambitious Gumbatte campaign plays on the Japanese motivational cry of  ' Ganbatte ' that means 'you can do it' as a rallying call to get Malaysians to take charge of their gum health and reach the 1 Million gum health checks figure.
The Campaign was launched by Dr. Norliza bt Mohamed, Acting Principal Director of Oral Health, in conjunction with National Oral Health Day at the 1 Utama Mall in Bandar Utama, here today. Axxording to Dr Norliza, oral health is often perceived as being less important than general health but this neglect must stop due to the seriousness of the issue. She pointed out that poor oral healh is often associated with other health problems.

"Research studies show corelations between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes, and most recently Alzheimer's disease. These are life threatening diseases and if early detection and treatment of gum disease can lower these corelations we should explore it." She said that Systema's Gumbatte campaign was on the right track with its emphasis on online gum health checks as the majority of Malaysians, even in rural areas get their information online.  "The Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks campaign can help the Ministry of Health Oral Care Division educate more people on the critical need for better gum care and oral healthy quickly and with immediate results."
Southern Lion Sdn Bhd, Senior General Manager, Ms Carmen Foo highlighted Systema's social purpose of creating higher awareness of oral health because strong teeth begins with healty gums. Systema is a core brand of Lion Corporation, Japan and has an oral care heritage of over 120 years gleaned from working with dental professionals, health policy makers, scientists and researchers.
"The Systema Anti Plaque System combines the Systema Advance Anti Plaque toothpaste to break down plaque and kill harmful bacteria even within gum pockets and the Systema 0.02mm tapered bristles toothbrushes to aid in the physical removal of plaque even from hard to reach places between teeth, along the gum line and inside gum pockets. Now, we have the solution ready. Therefore, it is time to raise awareness of gum disease as it is the foundation of healthy gum s and teeth for life. This is why we introduced the Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health Checks campaign to build the self awareness needed for positive change," Ms Foo said.

"Malaysians get much of their information from social media. This is why we are working with entertainment and social media power couple Wawa Zainal and Aeril Zafrel to viralise the campaign. We believe that through this strategy, the importance of having gum health checks can reach more people and inspire them to take action for better oral health," she added.
Malaysian Dental Association, President Elect, Dr Leong Kei Joe shared that reducing the incidence of gum disease in Malaysia needs to start with an overhaul in the perception of gum disease. He praised the campaign to address gum disease. "There is a serious lack of awareness of gum disease and its potential to impact quality of life and its link to other major disease . Too many of us accept the signs of gum disease such as bleeding when brushing as normal. Malaysians need to recognise the signs and symptoms of gum disease of gum disease so that they know when somthing is wrong and can seek help. Take control of your oral health visit to access your gum health status and if needed visit your dentist for treatment." He said that members of the Malaysian Dental Association will be providing free gum health check in support of the campaign and recommended that everyone visit their dentist at least twice a year.
Actor Aeril Zafrel was shocked by the high rates of gum rates of gum disease among Malaysians. "Being in the entertainment industry or any customer facing industry, having good personal hygieme including oral hygiene is a must. I hadn't realised the extentof the gum disease problem among us. I feel compelled to share this information because it can make a fifference especially given the link between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. All of us should head to to assess our gum health."

Actress and entrepreneur Wawa Zainal was equally motivated to be an oral health awareness enabler. "Gum disease is a health issue of national importance. If we can get more people to take better care of their gums by using an anti-plaquetoothpaste and toothbrush system that can help to improve quality of life it is a move in the right direction for our nation."
The Systema Gumbatte Towards 1 Million Gum Health checks roadshow will be on at 1 Utama Mall until Sunday, March 17th 2019 with free dental check ups, games, giveaways and other activities. Be among the first 1 million to assess your gum health check online at for healthy teeth and gums for life.
