Never too late for good oral hygiene

Many oral health diseases (such as gum disease) are entirely preventable and are caused by poor oral hygiene. By taking good care of our teeth, not only will our mouth benefit but the positive changes will be felt by the entire body.

As little back as 1978, the first Adult Dental Health Survey revealed a staggering one in three (37 per cent) Brits had none of their natural teeth. That year the average life expectancy was 73 years old.

Today, as few as one in twenty (six per cent) have none of their natural teeth while life expectancy has grown to around 81 years old.

It is never too late to think about how we care for our mouths. By making positive changes now we can help reduce deterioration of our health when we get older.

Don't forget your toothbrush!

As nine in ten of us finalise our overseas holiday plans, new research reveals that it’s a toothbrush which is the most important item we take with us.

In a poll of the most important items to take on holiday, a toothbrush brushed off the challenge of holiday essentials such as sun-cream, sunglasses, a camera and swimwear, to take top spot.

And that toothbrush might be needed because almost one in ten of us rank sweets for the journey as a holiday must-have, with cigarettes favoured by one in 20.1

Private Dentist in Liverpool explains the effects of diet on your teeth

A large cause of tooth decay is the sugar that is in the food and drinks you consume.  Every time you eat or drink something sugary your teeth are attacked from the plaque acids for up to one hour. This is because the sugar mixes with the bacteria in the plaque to produce the harmful plaque acids.

That is why it is important to have sugary foods and drinks just at mealtimes. If you are hungry between meals, you should choose foods that are kind to your teeth and do not have added sugar.

It is important to eat foods that will not cause acid attacks on your teeth. 
These include:  fresh fruit, raw vegetable pieces, plain popcorn, cheese, breadsticks, plain yoghurt, rice cakes, unsweetened cereal, plain bagels and nuts.

Taking your child to the dentist

Take your child to the dentist when the first milk teeth appear.
 
This is so they become familiar with the environment and get to know the dentist. The dentist can help prevent decay and identify any oral health problems at an early stage.
 
Just opening up the child's mouth for the dentist to take a look is useful practise for when they could benefit from future preventative care. 
 
When you visit our private dentist Liverpool, be positive about it and make the trip fun. This will stop your child worrying about future visits.
 
Take your child for regular dental check-ups as advised by the dentist. NHS dental care for children is free.
 

Destructive childhood impacts on oral health

Negative experiences in childhood have been labelled a ‘toxic stress' on dental health, according to a new report.

Research published in the journal of Community Dentistry Oral and Epidemiology has provided strong evidence for reinforcing claims that socioeconomic factors have a divisive role to play in the health of children.1

Children exposed to adverse experiences were more than twice as likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease and suffer from conditions such as unfilled cavities, missing teeth and toothache, all of which can have serious implications for overall health.

Improve the appearance of teeth with veneers

Dental veneers are used to improve the appearance of a tooth. A veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damage to a tooth's surface.

If a tooth is discoloured, a veneer can be used to improve the colour. They can also be used to improve the shape of chipped or broken teeth as well as to improve the position of a tooth that is slightly out of position – i.e. to close any gaps. They are generally made from a thin layer of porcelain, and fit over the front surface of a tooth.

The advantages of veneers are that they restore discoloured, chipped or out of line teeth to their true glory, giving you a healthy and natural smile.
