Oral Health Month to focus on adults

Fri

Oral Health Month to focus on adultsAdults will be reminded of the importance of dental care throughout September as part of Colgate Oral Health Month.

In a change from recent years, the focus will be directed at the older population rather than on good tooth hygiene among children.

Dr Tony Jenner, a specialist in dental public health and the immediate past deputy chief dental officer for England, explained how avoiding the need for emergency dentistry is vital.

“As we keep our teeth for longer, root caries also has the potential to become a serious problem that is difficult to treat.”

He referred to the 1998 National Dental Health Survey that revealed more than half the adult population had tooth problems due to decay becoming increasingly more common.

News publication Black Hills Today recently quoted Dr John Bridges as stating the need for individuals to have regular check-ups, even if their mouths appear healthy, to ensure there are no underlying issues.

Check-ups for gum disease ‘vital’

Check-ups for gum disease 'vital'People need to be aware that just because their mouths appear healthy does not mean there are not underlying oral health issues, one expert has warned.

Dr John Bridges explained the significance of dental hygiene in maintaining overall wellbeing and not just avoiding the need for emergency dentistry, Black Hills Today reports.

He commented on theories linking heart problems to gum disease stating how they are still in the early stages and as such it is important that people have regular dental check-ups to assess the health of their smiles.

“With studies still surfacing it is hard to know how many people have been affected by poor dental health,” Dr Bridges said.

He added that gum disease can increase the risk of heart attacks as proteins pass into the bloodstream.

Dr Tim Robinson recently told KPLC that people who are scared of visiting a dentist should consider using the sedation techniques available to relax themselves and allow work to be carried out more easily.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19876499-ADNFCR

A range of treatments are now available for individuals looking to gain the perfect smile, according to Black Hills Today.

Teeth whitening, Invisalign braces and dental implants can be three of the most effective procedures to give a person confidence, as they all result in a smarter smile.

“While dental implants are not for every patient, the ideal candidate should be in good health and does not have any major health problems, such as diabetes,” commented Dr Anh Nguyen, of Ray Dental Group in Rapid City, USA.

He added visiting a dental professional to have teeth whitening treatments carried out can often result in a better outcome for the patient than using over-the-counter alternatives.

Elsewhere, Santa Cruz-based dentist Rajneesh Sethi recently noted that having dental implants fitted could be a better solution than a bridge for people who have missing teeth.
