Women ‘are less likely to need an emergency dentist’


Women 'are less likely to need an emergency dentist'Women are more likely to see a dentist regularly in order to reduce the risk of needing root canal treatment, a study has suggested.

Findings published in the Journal of Peridontology have revealed that women care more than men about the welfare of their teeth and gums, reports.

Researchers found that fewer females suffer from symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums or dental plaque, as a result of taking more precautions.

The findings also revealed that 75 per cent of women would be embarrassed about the loss of a tooth caused by unhealthy gums.

In order to prevent this, women are also more likely to floss regularly in a bid to strengthen gums and remove bacteria.

Previous studies have discovered a link between poor oral hygiene and wider medical issues, such as strokes, diabetes and heart disease.

New research in the American Journal of Peridontology has revealed that regular consumption of calcium could reduce the risk of developing gum disease.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800558410-ADNFCR

Emergency dentistry news: British people ‘are oblivious to oral healthcare’


Emergency dentistry news: British people 'are oblivious to oral healthcare'People who want to limit their chances of needing emergency dentistry should do more to improve their overall oral health, according to a new survey.

Statistics uncovered by Wrigley on behalf of the British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) revealed that 94 per cent of people in the UK fail to chew gum after lunch because they are unaware of its beneficial qualities.

Conducted as part of National Smile Week, the study found that 50 per cent of the participants did not know that chewing gum assists in fighting plaque.

The findings of the study highlight the importance of promoting good oral healthcare across the country in a bid to prevent emergency dentistry.

Chewing gum neutralises harmful plaque acids found in food and ensures teeth are kept clean, as well as freshening breath.

MasterChef judge and professional chef John Torode said: "By simply chewing sugar-free gum like Extra Ice throughout the day after food and drink, oral health can be improved."

The BDHF has urged people to get involved with the National Smile Month campaign by organising events in their hometowns to promote good oral hygiene. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800557777-ADNFCR

Emergency dentistry news: Gum disease ‘could lead to wider health problems’


Emergency dentistry news: Gum disease 'could lead to wider health problems'People worried about needing emergency dentistry could be interested to hear that people with gum disease are twice as likely to have a heart attack, scientists have claimed.

The importance of maintaining good oral health has been highlighted due to the wider health risks associated with the contraction of periodontal problems.

Although a definite cause has not been established, scientists have identified a number of possible reasons for a link between the two conditions.

Experts have suggested that inflammation of the coronary arteries caused by bacteria from the mouth could be a causal factor for a heart attack, reports.

The publication also states that bacteria found in the gums through the contraction of periodontal disease could make its way into the bloodstream and lead to a number of health issues.

Previous studies have also identified a link between poor oral hygiene and wider health problems such as diabetes and stroke.

Emergency dentistry patients are advised to ensure teeth and gums stay healthy by brushing teeth regularly with a fluoride toothpaste to prevent a build-up of damaging plaque.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800553727-ADNFCR

Emergency dentistry news: Brushing ‘best way to keep teeth healthy’


Emergency dentistry news: Brushing 'best way to keep teeth healthy'People who brush their teeth regularly are more likely to have good oral health and avoid emergency dentistry.

Those who endeavour to keep their toothbrushes clean and fresh will see the best results – a statement that is supported by dentist Sebastiana Springmann.

This can be achieved with a few simple steps such as rinsing the toothbrush after it has been used by running cold water over the bristles to remove any leftover toothpaste or debris, reports the Mercury News.

People should keep their toothbrush in an upright position as this is the best way to dry the bristles out after brushing.

Dr Springmann said: "Toothbrush bristles that are worn or frayed from use cannot effectively remove plaque, which is critical to maintaining healthy teeth and gums."

About Dentistry suggests people should change their toothbrush once every three months to ensure the teeth are still being effectively cleaned.

The website recommends people with gum disease to change theirs every four to six weeks to avoid bacteria building up in the bristles.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800510044-ADNFCR

Flossing ‘can reduce the need for emergency dentistry’


Flossing 'can reduce the need for emergency dentistry'Using floss on a regular basis can significantly cut the risk of developing gum diseases that may require emergency dentistry.

The Daily Mirror has suggested that making a habit of flossing after brushing teeth can lead to a number of health benefits.

Indeed, the publication noted that rooting out bacteria in between the teeth can not only prevent gum disease, but can also reduce a person's risk of having a stroke.

Micro-organisms that develop in unclean mouths may jam up arteries and eventually lead to heart attacks.

Brushing is unlikely to remove all of the plaque built up around the teeth, thus making it important to floss in order to avoid bad breath.

Recently, Dentistry IQ reported that utilising dental floss can also prevent lung disease, as germs can often reach the organ via the windpipe.

Once this happens, problems can escalate as the lungs provide a warm environment for bacteria to grow.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800497018-ADNFCR

Expert offers tips on preventing emergency dentistry


Adhering to a series of dental hygiene rules could help people avoid emergency dentistry.Emergency dentistry could be avoided if people adhere to a series of dental hygiene rules, one expert has advised.

Louise Chidlow, dental advisor at the British Dental Health Foundation, explained it is extremely important for people to ensure they reduce their dietary sugar intake, as they will put themselves at risk of suffering tooth decay if too much sugar is consumed on a daily basis.

This risk could be increased even further if people don't have a satisfactory oral hygiene routine in place, she suggested.

Ms Chidlow also recommended people visit their dentist on a regular basis. While this is usually once every year, it could be as little as once every two years depending on the individual situation.

She said: "Brushing for two minutes twice a day is a must, use a fluoride toothpaste – that's an absolute must – and making sure that you've got the right sized toothbrush and you use the right brush for your needs."

In line with the recommendations of many dentists, Colgate advises that toothbrushes should be replaced every three months, as after this period they become less effective at removing plaque.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800417422-ADNFCR

Writer recommends flossing as part of an emergency dentistry prevention regime


Flossing really works as a method of emergency dentistry prevention, one writer has found.A writer has recommended flossing to people who want to succeed in an emergency dentistry prevention regime.

In an article for the Daily Weston, Amanda Geffner said she started flossing religiously after getting fed up of being told she had plaque or even cavities by her dentist.

She revealed that this has now paid off after being told by her hygienist that she has "excellent" homecare and did not need any treatment during her last visit.

After revelling in her "warm sense of wellbeing and accomplishment", Ms Geffner said she now intends to stick to flossing because she knows it works.

"I had my flaw-free teeth to show for it and Lord knows, the bicuspid never lies," she added.

Reader's Digest recently explained that flossing can not only get rid of food particles that toothbrushes cannot shift, but it can protect against heart disease, strokes and other serious problems by removing bacteria from the mouth.

Lower incisors ‘could be vulnerable to emergency dentistry’


Incisors could be in need of emergency dentistry unless they are looked after.People who do not look after their lower incisor teeth could be risking emergency dentistry, as they may be particularly vulnerable to plaque.

Dr Charles Ferber told the Daily Mail that the low, central teeth have thinner enamel and are also prone to tartar because they are close to salivary glands.

"A build-up of tartar can cause irritation that may make gum and jawbone shrink," he warned.

The expert also said that lower incisors are especially prone to damage from grinding, which people do without thinking or while they are asleep.

Incisors are the thin, blade-like teeth adapted for cutting and shearing food. Humans have eight, with four at the top and four at the bottom.

According to About Dentistry, the central incisors usually erupt when a person is six or seven, while lateral incisors normally appear at about the age of eight.

It may therefore be wise to begin emergency dentistry prevention measures with children to protect them straight away.


New year’s resolutions ‘could involve fighting emergency dentistry’


New year's resolutions could involve emergency dentistry avoidance this year.People who want to make a resolution ready for next year should consider sticking to one that will help them avoid emergency dentistry.

Advice from the American Dental Association has been cited by Dental Plans in the US, which said now is a good time to make sure you brush twice a day no matter what.

It pointed out that good oral health is essential for people of all ages, so the arrival of a new year is the ideal time to prevent emergency dentistry for both yourself and your children.

"Floss first before brushing because there is more of a chance for the fluoride from the toothpaste to get between the teeth," Dental Plans recommended.

Colgate states that it is best to choose a soft-bristled brush for removing plaque and debris, with small-headed varieties the optimal design for getting into nooks and crannies.

They should be replaced every three months, or whenever they begin to show wear.

Last-chance syndrome ‘could result in emergency dentistry’


Could all those trifles and yule logs cause a need for emergency dentistry? Falling victim to last-chance syndrome could leave you vulnerable to needing emergency dentistry soon, festive revellers have been warned.

Writing for, dentists Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz said this is the temptation to have a blowout on sweet snacks before the diet kicks in come new year.

However, they pointed out that the combination of sugar and starch in many foods at this time of year can be especially damaging to teeth.

"It creates a kind of superplaque that is up to five times harder, stickier and more acidic than the gunk (are we getting too technical here?) made without much starch," the experts explained.

To beat last-chance syndrome, Dr Roizen and Dr Oz suggested avoiding fizzy drinks in favour of cranberry juice which helps to neutralise acid in the mouth.

They also recommended always brushing and flossing before bedtime to cut the chances of decay.

Last month, scientists at the University of Rochester also recommended cranberries as ideal plaque-fighters thanks to the bacteria-fighting substances they contain.
