The Truth About Teeth!
Did you watch The Truth About Teeth last night on the BBC?
Here is the link if you didn’t:
It was surprisingly refreshing seeing a well-balanced programme about Dentistry on tv. The key messages were correct:
1. The importance of a good, healthy diet low in sugar and acids,
2. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
We often advise patients, that over-the-counter teeth whitening products generally do NOT work. To have effective tooth whitening, it needs to be assessed and done by a dental professional. This is something we can provide at the practice.
Seeing nervous patients is common and an area we cater for. Just read the comments from our patients. So if you haven’t been for a while to have your mouth checked, why not contact us? We can help you.
Tune in to next week’s episode of the programme. My professor from the university makes an appearance…the amazing Prof Chapple!
p.s. NEVER use super glue in the mouth. It’s dangerous!
