Oral Health But Make It Eco-Friendly

redhead in the windWith the Earth Day nearly upon us (22 April 2024) many people are thinking about how to incorporate more eco-friendly habits into their daily life.

From minimising single use plastics to being mindful of your carbon footprint, there are lots of choices you can make in daily life to be more sustainable, and that includes your dental hygiene regime! Here are some ways to go green this Earth Day and beyond:

#1. Avoid single use, plastic products like flossers.

Instead, consider alternatives like recyclable dental floss that’s manufactured with sustainable materials, such as bamboo fibre.

#2. Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth.

We all learn this when we are kids but sometimes even adults forget. Turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before you go to bed, you can save up to 30 litres of water!

#3. Visit an eco dentist like Shenton Park Village Dental
At our practice, there are many ways we strive to be green. Here are some of them:

  • Instead of paper records, we use digital record-keeping.
  • To reduce transportation costs, we use local labs for crown and bridge work.
  • Instead of traditional bulbs, we use LED lights—which have a longer lifespan—all throughout our surgery.
