We are supporting the fight against sugar

The number of primary school children admitted to hospital with rotting teeth has reached record levels.

There was a 20 per cent rise in admissions last year, Government data reveals, and dental decay is now the most likely cause of a stay in hospital for children aged 10 and under.

At least two thirds of the 62,000 admissions last year are estimated to be due to tooth decay or gum disease.

Many children are admitted for multiple extractions and experts say a lack of access to dentistry and an increase in the consumption of sugary food and drink is largely to blame.

Statistics from Cancer Research UK show the number of people diagnosed with mouth cancer have soared by a third

Until now, smoking and excessive alcohol use have been associated with the disease, however, experts now say that it is HPV, which can be transferred through oral sex, that is largely responsible for the growing number of mouth cancers in the UK.

Every year more than 6,500 Brits are diagnosed with mouth cancer, with the disease taking in excess of 2,000 lives - more than testicular and cervical cancer combined.

Mouth cancer is one of the fastest increasing cancers and, with health leaders predicting that HPV will soon become the major cause of the disease; campaigners are calling for greater education about the sexually-transmitted disease.

On site Hygienist at our Liverpool Dentist

Even if you maintain a regular oral hygiene routine with brushing and flossing, potential problems can still arise that only a professional can spot.

At our Liverpool Dental Practice we have an expert team will not only give you a thorough and complete oral examination but will also screen you for oral cancer as standard. We recommend that our patients should come for a thorough examination every 3 to 6 months. Regular appointments ensure that any problems that may arise are treated as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary future discomfort. Our expert team consists of three highly skilled dental hygienists.

Top tips to keep your teeth healthy

National statistics show that British children are getting most of their sugar from soft drinks and fruit juices, causing huge damage to their teeth.
 
A new report from Public Health England (PHE)1 shows children between the ages of 4-18 are getting a whopping 30 per cent of their sugar intake from sugary drinks, something which leading dental health charity the British Dental Health Foundation believes is putting their dental health in serious jeopardy.
 
Other sweet treats appearing on the list includes chocolate, breakfast cereals, biscuits and ice cream but it is the current trend towards sugary drinks which is particularly worrying for the charity.
