What’s new at Totally Teeth
During dental health week our Oral Health Therapist Vandana and our senior Dental Assistant Janet visited the preps at Southern Cross Primary school.
We love to visit local schools to educate them on the importance of good oral hygiene. Instilling proper oral care habits in children can prevent a host of dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, and enamel wear, which can be painful, costly, and even lead to more severe health complications later in life.
Moreover, healthy teeth and gums aid in proper speech development and ensure that children can chew food effectively, facilitating good nutrition. Beyond the physical implications, a bright and healthy smile boosts a child's self-esteem and confidence, influencing their social interactions and self-image. Additionally, ingraining these habits early on tends to result in adults who maintain consistent oral care routines, leading to a lifetime of dental health.
Ultimately, children equipped with the knowledge and practice of good oral hygiene are set on a trajectory for overall better health, wellness, and quality of life.

The relationship between diet and dental health is significant
A balanced diet and diligent oral hygiene play pivotal roles in the preservation of dental health and the prevention of diseases. Consuming a nutrient-rich diet fortifies the teeth and gums, providing them with essential vitamins and minerals. Simultaneously, frequent intake of sugary and acidic foods can expedite tooth decay and erosion.
Regular oral hygiene practices, like brushing and flossing, remove food particles and harmful bacterial plaque, thereby reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
Together, a health-conscious diet and thorough oral care create a robust defense against dental ailments, ensuring a lifetime of strong, radiant smiles.
