Let's help improve our children's oral health

Dental professionals are ‘on their own’ spreading the word about the damage sugar can do to children’s teeth, Michael Watson says.
 
The Soft Drinks Industry Levy (aka sugar tax), details of which were released last week, is described as ‘a central pillar’ in the government’s childhood obesity plan.
 
They claimed, however, that it has always been clear that this is a levy ‘we would rather not collect’.
What they want is for companies in the UK soft drinks market to reformulate their products so that they have less sugar in them and do not have to pay so much tax.

Can bad breath affect your happiness?

Bad breath has often been considered one of the top health faux pas and now new research has suggested that doing away with halitosis can dramatically increase your happiness.

A new study, published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene, looked at the impact of bad breath in relation to people's quality of life and found that, on average, people who suffered from bad breath were found to be twice as unhappy1 as those who didn't.

By questioning people on specific aspects of their day-to-day lives, the study uncovered those with bad breath had 500% more negative experiences than those with fresh breath.

Don't let your child be at risk of tooth decay

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.  Our Private Dentist in Liverpool will be happy to discuss to any concerns you have about your child's oral health.  Please contact us to make an appointment.

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.

Guidelines from the NHS advise parents to supervise their children while brushing their teeth up until at least the age of seven, this ensures they are doing it effectively and for the correct amount of time.

Good diet means good oral health for your children

A new study has found that early exposure to two chemicals often found in food packaging and fungicides may cause irreversible damage to children’s teeth.

The researchers found exposure to the chemicals bisphenol A (BPA) and vinclozolin may interfere with hormones responsible for the growth of dental enamel.

Lead study author Dr Katia Jedeon, of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), and colleagues presented their findings at the 2016 European Congress of Endocrinology in Munich, Germany.

Encouraging good oral health in our children

A third of parents believe it’s acceptable for children to have experienced tooth decay before they become a teenager.

These results come from a survey conducted by Denplan, which found that 30% of parents believe decay in children is acceptable while 26% said they have found it difficult to regulate children’s sugar consumption.

Of the parents surveyed, 29% believed painful oral health conditions, such as tooth decay, are down to your family history and just 18% said they take their child to see the dentist once a year as soon as their first tooth appears.
