Caring For Your Child’s Teeth

Bring your children to the dentist from the youngest age possible, even if it is just to watch yourself have a regular check-up. Familiarise them to the surroundings as this will have a positive effect in the future when they decide to sit in the chair for their check ups! Every time your child attends Anchor Road Dental Practice and comes into our surgery to see the dentist they will always be rewarded with a sticker. Your little toddlers first teeth usually appear at about 6 months old and we advise you begin supervised brushing at this time. Use only a pea-sized smear of toothpaste containing 1000ppm of fluoride. After the age of three fluoride can be increased upto 1500ppm, but continue to use only a pea-sized smear under supervision as children have a tendancy to swallow toothpaste. Supervision can be minimised after 7 years old once your child understands not to swallow the toothpaste and you are confident that they are brushing correctly. Sugar causes tooth decay. Minimising its content in the diet will help keep their teeth...

Mouth Cancer Awareness

Mouth Cancer Awareness Month 2014 in November is almost upon us. At Anchor road Dental Practice , with the help of Denplan, everything is going BLUE!!!! Lots of fundraising will be done and we will be making patients aware of the signs and symptoms and also how to avoid developing mouth cancer in the future. Mouth cancer or Oral cancer is when a tumour develops inside of the mouth, on the lips, tongue, inside cheeks or tonsils. If you have heavy ulcers which do no heal within 3 to 4 weeks this can also be a sign, in which case we would advise you to visit your dentist. The main causes Of Oral/Mouth Cancer are smoking and heavy drinkers. A poor diet can also attribute to the causes of Oral cancer. It is thought that Men are more likely to suffer from this than women and the most common age group is 50-75 although younger people do still suffer. The most common ways of treating mouth cancer is with surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.  If treatment is begun early then the likelyhood of a positive outcome is dramatically increased. Regular check ups with your dentist are advised for early detection. For prevention low alcohol consumption, smoking cessation and a healthy diet can help.
