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.

E-Cigs cause damage to gum tissue

A University of Rochester Medical Center study suggests that electronic cigarettes are as equally damaging to gums and teeth as conventional cigarettes.

The study, published in Oncotarget, was led by Irfan Rahman, Ph.D. professor of Environmental Medicine at the UR School of Medicine and Dentistry, and is the first scientific study to address e-cigarettes and their detrimental effect on oral health on cellular and molecular levels.

Electronic cigarettes continue to grow in popularity among younger adults and current and former smokers because they are often perceived as a healthier alternative to conventional cigarettes.

Professional Tooth Whitening

Do not be a victim of illegal tooth whitening, our cosmetic dentist in Liverpool offers safe and effective tooth whitening.    

The General Dental Council (GDC) has today prosecuted a woman in Liverpool for illegal activity relating to tooth whitening that has left an eighteen year old victim with permanent teeth and gum damage, as well as the expected loss of two lower front teeth.

Ms Cheryl Roberts was found guilty at Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates’ Court and fined £660. The judge also ordered her to pay £2000 to the victim and the GDC’s costs of £1000. Ms Roberts failed to attend court and the matter was proved in her absence.

Dentures can change the way you look and feel

Dentures are used to replace lost or missing teeth and are generally made from acrylic in a colour to match your natural teeth. Not only do full dentures replace natural teeth but they also provide the necessary support for lips and the cheeks. If you weren’t to have this support, the facial muscles can begin to sag which can result in a person appearing older while reducing their ability to speak or eat.

Our Liverpool Dentist can help take good care of your oral health

Tooth loss can be used as a major predictor to somebody's life expectancy, according to new research. 

The research, published in the Periodontology 20001, found that the number of teeth we lose can be a key indicator to our quality of life and that those who have a full set of teeth when they are 74 are significantly more likely to reach 100 years old2.  So it is very important to take care of our teeth and our Liverpool Dentist can help you with this through regular checkups  and identifying problems early if there are any.
