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.

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.

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.

Let's get those kids brushing!!

Almost four million under 14's in the UK are at risk of developing serious oral health problems due to inadequate tooth brushing supervision, according to a leading oral health charity.

Results of a new poll carried out by the British Dental Health Foundation found more than one in three (37 per cent) parents said they stopped supervising their children's tooth brushing before the age of seven.
