Big Summer Brush Up at our Liverpool Dentist

The ‘Big Summer Brush-Up’ has been launched for the second year, encouraging families to practise brushing techniques with children.

Run by Denplan, the national campaign will run throughout July and August and it’s hoping, with the help of dental practices, to raise awareness of oral health in children along with improving their brushing technique, this year Katie Piper is the campaign’s celebrity Mum ambassador.

Don't let piercings affect your oral health

A leading health charity is calling on people to understand the risks associated with oral piercings after uncovering their remarkable popularity.

Research1 carried out by the Oral Health Foundation found tongue piercings are particularly popular, with 43% of people with oral piercings opting for them. A third (33%) of people had a lip piercing, with cheek (3%) and gum (7%) piercings much less common.

The poll also found that 13% of people with oral piercings had more than one, highlighting the current popularity of the trend.

Don't hide your smile

While the majority of us are more than happy to smile for the camera we are not so keen on putting our gnashers on display when it comes to saying "cheese", according to a new nationwide poll from the Oral Health Foundation and Oral-B.

Less than a third (29 per cent) of us said we are likely to pose for a photograph with an open mouth smile, with findings showing that discoloured teeth are the biggest reason we are not flashing our pearly whites (33 per cent).
