No need to be nervous at our Private Dentist in Liverpool

New research has discovered that being afraid of the dentist can not only affect your oral health but can be seriously damaging to your overall quality of life. 

The study, published in the International Dental Journal, revealed that dental anxiety can heavily impact you psychologically and socially, leading to feelings such as shame, poor self-confidence and social isolation1

Key elements of social wellbeing, such as income and education, were also negatively affected by dental anxiety Those questioned were almost twice as likely to be on a lower income if they feared dental visits. Results also showed they were twice as likely to suffer from poor oral health.

Dentist from Manchester Eleni Kalamara pleaded guilty to five charges of carrying out dentistry illegally following an investigation and prosecution by regulators the General Dental Council.

Happy staff at our Liverpool Dentist

Dentistry divided – NHS dentists substantially more unhappy than private.

The results from the latest NHS Confidence Monitor survey have painted a stark picture of a deep gulf between the happiness levels of NHS dentists compared to private dentists. The former overwhelmingly said they were unhappy in response to every question asked about their working life.

In contrast, the vast majority of those working in private practice said they were happy. And, whilst these results may not be that surprising to anyone who has caught even a glimpse of the headlines about the NHS (both specifically in relation to dentistry and also the wider healthcare system) over recent months, they are still shocking.

UK’s top ‘sweet-tooth’ cities revealed

With the Great British Bake Off back on our television screens, one leading charity has investigated where in the United Kingdom is most likely to reach for a roulade and which places are saying no to a gateau.

The Oral Health Foundation polled thousands of Brits to discover which city's residents give in to their ‘sweet-tooth' the most and reveal the nation's cake eating habits.

Belfast topped the list, with more than four in five (83%) residents consuming portions of cake and biscuits every day. Norwich and Liverpool came next, with nearly three in four (74%) treating themselves daily.1 This may explain why Belfast and Liverpool have some of the highest levels of tooth decay in Britain. 

Oral and Physical health are linked

Tooth-brushing and flossing to maintain healthy gums has been common knowledge for many years, and has played a significant role in improving general oral health. However, evidence is building of links between oral infection and bacteria with conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Treating inflammation, therefore, may not only help manage periodontal disease, but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions.
