Oral Health Tips and Practices

Maintaining optimal oral health involves a daily commitment to good dental hygiene practices and smart dietary choices. We recommend brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing regularly to remove plaque and prevent gum disease.

It’s essential to limit sugary and acidic foods that can harm tooth enamel. Incorporating foods rich in calcium and phosphorus, such as dairy products and nuts, strengthens teeth. We also stress the importance of staying hydrated, as water helps clean the mouth and produce saliva, which protects against decay. Regular dental check-ups are crucial for early detection and treatment of potential issues. By adopting these practices, we empower ourselves to maintain a healthy, confident smile.

We’re deeply committed to supporting the St Ives community, ensuring our dental services are accessible and tailored for families of all sizes and needs.
