Peter Crouch to return to Stoke after losing teeth in Newcastle game


Former England striker and Stoke City player Peter Crouch is set to return for Saturdays game against Aston Villa with a mouth guard fitted to protect his damaged teeth and gums; the 31-year-old was involved in a collision with Newcastle player Fabricio Coloccini during last week’s Premier League match between Stoke City and Newcastle United. The two players collided and Coloccini’s elbow caught Crouch in the face, knocking out two of his front teeth and pushing two others into the gums, leading to the player leaving the field with a bloody mouth.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis said that the 6ft 7in striker was keen to get back into the game after the accident but was deemed unfit to play against West Bromwich Albion last Saturday, although Stoke managed a fourth win in five games even without Crouch playing. Tony joked that Crouch was desperate to ‘sink his teeth into them’ despite his injuries.

Peter is attending a dental appointment on Wednesday to have a mouth guard fitted and should be fit to return to training on Thursday ahead of the weekend’s game against Aston Villa. It is not clear whether further work will be done to repair the damage after the game but it is likely that some treatment will need to be undertaken after the teeth were knocked out of their sockets.

Diabetes ‘doubles’ risk of losing teeth


Men with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of losing teeth compared to those who do not have the disease, according to a new study.Dental implants may be more common in men with diabetes, as new research has shown they are twice as likely to lose their teeth than those without the disease.

A study presented at an International Association of Dental Research conference last week found that type 2 diabetes increased the risk of tooth loss, as did poor diet and smoking.

Over 2.5 million people across Britain are diabetic, according to the charity Diabetes UK.

Chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation Nigel Carter suggested he was shocked by the results.

“Although we have known for many years that diabetics are more likely to suffer from gum disease, the extent of the increase in such a large study is surprising,” he said, adding that good dental health was important for the entire body.

The survey, carried out at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, followed 38,000 men over 20 years.

None of them had any gum disease at the start of the trial, but over the time period around 11,000 teeth were lost, more often by type 2 diabetics.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19900354-ADNFCR

Midnight snackers ‘risk losing teeth’


Midnight snackers 'risk losing teeth'Snacking in the middle of the night could lead to an increased risk of serious tooth damage and even loss, experts have warned.

A six year study by the University of Copenhagen found that of the participating 2,217 Danes, the 173 who were categorised as nocturnal eaters lost the most teeth, the BBC reports.

Nocturnal eaters were categorised by their pattern of eating more than a quarter of their daily calories after dinner or in the middle of the night, at least twice a week.

No significance could be drawn between the types of food eaten and the findings, instead the researchers believe the drying-up of saliva flow at night is the causative factor.

The British Dental Association’s scientific advisor Professor Damien Walmsley said: “Eating at night, when the mouth is driest and any food remains in the mouth longer, accentuates the impact of consuming sugary and acidic food and drinks.”

He recommended drinking only water in the last hour of the day and ensuring teeth are brushed immediately before bed.

Lack of regular tooth brushing was recently found to increase the risk of suffering from heart disease, according to a report published in the British Medical Journal.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19813220-ADNFCR

Myths about gum disease dispelled


Gum disease facts for those who do not understand the affliction.

A number of common misconceptions surrounding gum disease have been dispelled by the American Academy of Periodontology. gum disease

The organisation noted that anyone who has bleeding gums should be aware that this is one of the earliest signs of gum disease and could be an indicator of other underlying dental health issues.

In addition, it addressed the issue that a tooth lost to gum disease cannot be replaced. This is not the case, as advances in dental technology – such as dental implants – now mean these teeth can be replaced.

Elsewhere, research carried out by Professor Saso Ivanovski at Brisbane’s Griffith University has shown that harvested cells surrounding ligaments around the teeth of sufferers can be used to regenerate lost tissue, ABC News reported.

He noted that one in ten sufferers of gum disease end up losing teeth and this treatment could be one way of addressing this statistic.

Professor Ivanovski said: “It’s really addressing the after-effects of the disease rather than the treatment as such – so in effect, you are reversing the effects of the disease.”

He noted that one in ten sufferers of gum disease end up losing teeth and this treatment could be one way of addressing this statistic.

Elsewhere, dental surgeons in the US are pioneering a treatment which entails a small laser being used to kill bacteria in the mouth, while stimulating recovery in healthy tissue in order to tackle gum disease.

Periodontist Dr Robert Yu claimed the surgery is relatively straightforward and the treatment can help dramatically reduce the impact of gum disease on an individual’s health.
