A bridge is a great solution to fill gaps

Why should I replace missing teeth?

Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean more strain is put on the teeth at either side. A gap can also mean your ‘bite' is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and change the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes tooth decay and gum disease.

Charity uncovers overwhelming support for ban on sale of energy drinks for under 16’s

The Oral Health Foundation is calling for a change in the law to ban the sale of energy drinks to under 16’s in the United Kingdom.

New research reveals the proposed legislation is now backed by more than nine in ten (93%) British adults, with even greater support (98%) coming from those with children.1

Some national supermarkets introduced a ban earlier this year on the sale of energy drinks to under 16’s, with those buying drinks with over 150mg of caffeine per litre needing to provide proof of age.

Good oral health has other important health benefits

New research has made a promising discovery for the continued health of millions of heart attack survivors globally, as looking after their oral health has been found to help their cardiovascular system recover.

The study found that bacteria which causes gum disease can also impair the healing and repair of arteries after a heart attack. The researchers believe that this impaired healing may be due to an enzyme produced by the bacteria that stops the body's immune cells from repairing the arteries.
