How to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime

Ageing is an issue for our smiles as gums recede and teeth are worn down but this can be mitigated by wearing a retainer every night, according to cosmetic dentist Dr Sahil Patel, Founder of the Marylebone Smile Clinic. To avoid cavities, Dr Patel suggests you should limit your sugar intake to 3-4 exposures per 24 hours and follow up the sugary treat with a drink of plain water. Also, make sure you use fluoride toothpaste twice a day to keep the cavities at bay.
