  • How Red Wine Can Damage Your Teeth

    Should dentists now be warning about the effects that alcohol including red wine can have on your oral health?

    Despite the generalised notion that a small amount of red wine on a daily basis can be good for your maintaining your overall health, there has been recent speculation that questions the effect that red wine could be having on more specifically your oral health.

    Generally alcoholic drinks are thought to be damaging to your teeth due to their high sugar content. This combined with alcohol’s acidity often causes the enamel of the teeth to slowly erode. Although red wines might not have such high sugar levels in comparison with carbonated drinks, red wine can still cause considerable damage to your teeth as the acidic characteristics of wine means that your teeth is not only stained but also eroded.

    Setting up your own dental practice or taking over an existing practice can be an extremely daunting task.

This is where the British Dental Association event “Setting yourself up in practice: unlocking your business potential” will help you make your business a success. The event taking place on Friday 5th September 2014 in London is open to both BDA Members, non members and dental care professionals.

  • Dental Visits Differ Geographically In The UK

    Guidelines recommend that you should visit the dentist approximately every 6 months in order to keep your oral health in check. We recently posted a blog entry regarding the gender divide when it comes to attendance at dental appointments. Further studies by dentistry today have also noticed a significant geographical divide.

    This geographical divide is showing that Wales is falling behind in dental appointment as a study indicates that “nearly 50 % of adults in the country have not visited the dentist for at least 2 years.”

    Despite these worrying results the study has also revealed that there does appear to be a slight increase in attendance compared to previous results collected between 2011 – 2013. However health campaigners are arguing that this is not enough and there needs to be a greater awareness of the importance of dental health.

  • Do Your Dental Patients Often Skip Check Ups?

    You probably tell your patients that they should have a dental check-up approximately every 6 months and at the minimum once every year. However despite this advice many dentists are still witnessing an increase in the number of patients that are skipping their appointments.

    You might have noticed a gender divide in those visiting your dental surgery as research according to a survey by the dental people suggests that 49% of women compared to 43% of men were more likely to attend the dentist regularly. Despite this there is still an astonishing 5 million people in the UK who have failed to attend the dentist in the last 10 years. Continue reading

  • Brief History Of Dentistry

    The dictionary defines dentistry as the branch of medicine that studies, prevents and treats oral cavities. Nowadays, the dentist team is compromised of the dentist and more commonly the technicians, assistants, hygienists and therapists. Although dental issues like tooth decay have always been an issue of the past, this extensive dental team has not always existed and in fact dentistry and its procedures have developed a large amount over the last few centuries.
