Britons looking to avoid a trip to the emergency dentist might want to hold off on drinking white wine, following the publication of the results of a new study.
Researchers from Johannes Gutenberg University in Germany have discovered that while red wine has been found to stain teeth – leading to patients looking for teeth whitening treatments – white wine has been found to wear away tooth enamel, resulting in a greater likelihood of white wine drinkers developing sensitive teeth.
Co-author of the study Dr Brita Willershausen told the Daily Mail: "Within the limits of this study, it can be predicted that frequent consumption of white wines might lead to severe dental erosion."
Meanwhile, Dr Caron George, a 24-year-old emergency dentist from Wales, recently ran in last Sunday’s (October 18th) half marathon in Cardiff to help raise awareness for the Mouth Cancer Foundation.
He hoped his efforts would help highlight the issue of mouth cancer, as well as raising much-needed funds for the charity.
