It always amazes me to learn that thousands of children in the UK are having to have their teeth extracted and part of the reason is that they are not having regular dental check-ups.
It’s a staggering fact to learn that almost 47,000 children a year are admitted to hospital with some form of tooth decay, every parent is distraught when their child has to have teeth extracted and in many cases all their teeth extracted.
Sugar is a large factor and every time you eat or drink anything sugary, the sugar reacts with the plague in your mouth, which in turn produces harmful acids that can damage our teeth. Although it may not be immediately obvious, you still need to be aware and seeing the dentist regularly will remind us.
Your dentist can see the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease, another good reason to keep up with your dental health checks.
So try to ensure both you and your children reduce the amount of sugar you have in your diet, ideally cut out altogether sugary drinks and never ever put sugary drinks in a bottle for your child to suck on.
No matter what age you are, you must become aware of hidden sugar in everyday foods to avoid restorative dental work and maintain good oral health.
Having regular dental check-ups is just as important to your dental health as is having a healthy diet. If there are any problems looming we can spot them early at Victoria Road Dental Clinic and take action.
It’s a little known fact that your teeth are the only part of your body which can’t regenerate itself, so please ensure you and your family keep your teeth for as long as possible and have a dental check-up with Victoria Road Dental Clinic
