Bad breath can be embarassing

How can I tell if I have bad breath?

Lots of small signs can show that you have bad breath. Have you noticed people stepping away from you when you start to talk? Do people turn their cheek when you kiss them goodbye?

If you think you might have bad breath, there is a simple test that you can do. Just lick the inside of your wrist and sniff - if the smell is bad, you can be fairly sure that your breath is too.

Or, ask a very good friend to be absolutely honest with you; but do make sure they are a true friend.

Looking for an NHS Dentist?

The UK’s leading oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, has today demanded the government significantly increase investment in NHS dentistry and are highlighting strong public support for more funding as a sign that things need to change.

The charity feels that although the NHS dental system in the UK continues to perform well and provides a remarkable service, despite being continually underfunded by the government, the time has come for greater support to be given to a continually besieged service.

Do you know all your different kinds of teeth?

Teeth are vital to our overall health, helping us to bite and chew food. How much do you know about them?

Milk teeth

Babies' teeth begin to develop before they are born, but in most cases don't come through until they're between 6 and 12 months old.

Most children have a full set of 20 milk or baby teeth by the time they're three years old. When they reach five or six, these teeth will start to fall out, making way for adult teeth.

Adult teeth

By the age of 12 to 14, most children have lost all their baby teeth and have their adult teeth.

Revised NHS Dental Charges from the 1st April 2018.

Dentistry is one of the few NHS services where you have to pay a contribution towards the cost of your care. In April 2006, the NHS in England and Wales started operating a new contract system.

This means that there are now three standard charges for the National Health Service for dental treatment, this will help to make the NHS system easier and more accessible for patients.

The information on this page explains what you may have to pay for your NHS dental treatment.

Sugar Tax is here but a regular visit to your NHS Dentist is still important

The Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP(UK)) has welcomed the new sugar tax as a ‘game-changer’ for oral health, and says the latest data on childhood tooth extractions highlight its necessity.

The Faculty was among the organisations which campaigned for the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, which came into force early April and taxes manufacturers 18 pence per litre for drinks with total sugar content above five grams per 100ml, and 24 pence per litre for those above eight grams per 100ml.

There is no catchment area for our NHS Dentist in Liverpool

Everyone should be able to access good-quality NHS dental services.

There is no need to register with a dentist in the same way as with a GP because you are not bound to a catchment area.

Simply find a dental practice that's convenient for you, whether it's near your home or work, and phone them to see if there are any appointments available. 

If you do not have a regular dental practice or are new to the area, you can search for an NHS dentist near you.
