The changes will come into effect in the United Kingdom this Saturday [20 May 2017] and limit the size and strength of e-cigarette tanks, as well as ban certain ingredients, including colourings and caffeine.

Fear of the dentist can increase your risk of tooth decay, study reveals

A new study has suggested that a fear of going to the dentist can increase your risk of developing tooth decay.

Researchers at King’s College London claim that women are four times more likely to suffer from odontophobia (a phobia of the dentist) than men, putting them at greater risk of dental decay. The study findings, which have been published in the British Dental Journal suggest that people who have a fear of going to the dentist have an elevated risk of dental disease.

The Easter egg aftermath

Even though Easter is behind us the munching of our Easter eggs may still continue throughout the week.  So it is particularly important to take care of our oral health that this sweet time of year.

Striking a balance between letting your child indulge on their treats and keeping an eye on their consumption is the best way to make sure their oral health doesn't suffer. It is how often, not how much sugary food and drink is consumed that causes oral health problems.

To help, the British Dental Health Foundation is offering the following tips and advice to help make Easter a treat for everyone.

Hormone Replacement Therapy shown to be highly effective in reducing gum disease

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has been credited with helping women manage a range of menopause-related issues, including hot flushes, heart health and bone density, and now new research suggests HRT could be used to reduce gum disease and prevent tooth loss.

The study, which evaluated nearly 500 women between the ages of 50 and 87, discovered rates of gum disease were significantly lower in those receiving HRT, with many seeing a 44% improvement in gum health.1

The menopause, which commonly strikes in the late 40s and early 50s, leaves women at higher risk of several health issues, including gum disease, due to a decrease in oestrogen levels.
