Could cleaning teeth with soap prevent emergency dentistry?


Could cleaning teeth with soap prevent emergency dentistry?People who want to prevent emergency dentistry could be interested to hear that cleaning teeth with soap could improve oral health.

According to previous research, certain ingredients found in regular toothpastes prevent protective enamel from forming on the teeth, the Windsor Star reports.

The study by Dr Gerald Judd claimed that without the hard outer layer, bacteria are more likely to harm the teeth and gums.

In an article for the newspaper Dr W Gifford Jones claimed he had tested this theory, which had displayed positive results.

Dr Jones revealed that using soap as an alternative to toothpaste had assisted in the removal of 90 per cent of bacteria from the incisors.

Know Your Teeth recommends people use a toothpaste containing fluoride, which is found to promote remineralisation in the mouth.

The website advises people to use toothpaste in order to reduce the chances of decay as well as maintain fresh and clean breath.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800529154-ADNFCR

Dentist stresses importance of avoiding emergency dentistry


Dentist stresses importance of avoiding emergency dentistryA dentist has stressed the importance of children receiving the appropriate care if they are to avoid needing emergency dentistry treatment.

Dr Dwight Jones has embarked on a campaign to increase awareness of healthy teeth among children and highlight the risks of tooth decay.

"I see a lot of kids with a large number of cavities," Dr Jones told the Daily Triplicate.

"Twenty-five years ago most had a few cavities, but now we have some that have a few and some that have 20."

Tooth decay is typically caused by eating too much sugar and not cleaning children's teeth properly.

Dr Jones is now trying to combat this issue by educating parents about the most effective methods of cleaning and preventing plaque build-up so they can avoid their children having to undergo a root canal procedure.

He aims to specifically target parents who do not take their children to see the dentist often enough.  ADNFCR-2621-ID-800513158-ADNFCR

US doctor praises Botox for treating migraines


Botox has helped a young US migraine sufferer.A doctor in the US has praised Botox for treating migraines, shortly after the treatment was officially approved by the country's Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Dr Carrie Jones, writing for, said her practice recently had a 19-year-old patient who was suffering so badly from headaches that she and the medics feared she had a brain tumour.

However, after ruling this out with an MRI scan, Dr Jones and her colleagues tried Botox.

"Instantly the headache was gone and has yet to return," she commented.

Dr Jones said Botox could be worth a try for those who have at least 15 migraine days a month and is usually comprised of 30 or so injections.

Both the UK and the US have now approved Botox for the treatment of severe headaches following a number of studies which proved its effectiveness.

The non-invasive procedure could cut migraines by up to half.

Many Plymouth children suffer tooth decay, says report


Sugary snacks can cause tooth decayMany children in Plymouth may find they have to go for emergency dentistry, if new figures are anything to go by.

A report from Plymouth’s NHS Oral Health Strategy has revealed that 29.1 per cent of five-year-olds suffered obvious tooth decay in 2009.

Furthermore, only 11 per cent had these decayed teeth filled, the Herald reports.

According to city healthcare experts, the problem comes as a result of poor diets and a high consumption of sugary sweets.

Dr Gill Jones, Plymouth consultant in dental public health, said many parents do not do enough to give their children’s teeth a proper clean twice a day.

“And we’ve got to get children used to coming into the dentist, giving them fluoride and brushing advice. It’s about raising awareness,” she added.

Dr Jones said that although it is fine to have some sugar at meal times, youngsters should not snack on sweet treats too much.

Earlier this week, the British Dental Health Foundation told Elle magazine that consuming too much sugar can lead to acid attacks.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19904954-ADNFCR
