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.

Why the UK public need to take dental health more seriously

Despite the importance of oral health, too many people in the UK neglect their teeth and gums

The quest for parity of esteem between mental health and physical health in the NHS has become a major concern for society, and attitudes are slowly changing. But what about oral health?

The sense that it is “only teeth”, and somehow less important than other aspects of physical health, remains deeply entrenched. This is frustrating further progress in improving the nation’s oral health and threatens to undo the achievements of recent years.

National Smile Month

Leading health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, is delighted to announce the return of National Smile Month for 2017, with the campaign promising to bring with it a summer time of smiles right across the country.

This year the UK's largest and longest running oral health campaign takes place between 15 May and 15 June and aims to increase awareness of important oral health issues and make a significant difference to the well-being of millions of people.

Looking after children's oral health at our NHS Dentist

Following the release on Tuesday of what are incredibly disturbing and entirely avoidable statistics from the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) showing that tooth extractions in children aged four and under have increased by 24% in the last decade, the UK's leading oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, have looked at what needs to be done to ensure that this horrific trend is put to a top.

Baby teeth removals 'up 24% in a decade'

Hospitals in England are seeing thousands of very young children each year needing baby teeth removed.

The Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons, which compiled the data, blames tooth decay linked to sugary diets.

Figures show there were 9,206 extractions carried out on children aged four and younger between April 2015 and March 2016.

A decade ago, it was closer to 7,400 extractions.  That is a rise of about 24% in the space of a decade - more than you would expect from population growth alone, says the faculty.

Funny dental facts from your Liverpool Dentist

In aid of World Oral Health Day today the UK's leading dental charity, the Oral Health Foundation, have looked at just how long we spend brushing our teeth during our lives with some amazing findings. 

The charity has discovered that, with the UK's average life expectancy currently standing at 81.5 years, if a person brushes their teeth for two minutes twice a day over the course of their life it would equate to 118,990 minutes - the equivalent of 1,983.16 hours or slightly more than 82 days.

Join your Liverpool Dentist fight against Cancer

In 2011, there were 7,698 new cases in the UK, an increase of 50% since the turn of the century. 

With more than 6,000 new cases in England alone, Scotland has the most cases per 100,000 people and almost double the number of men contracted the disease compared to women. It is one of the few cancer variations on the rise and claims more lives than cervical and testicular cancer combined, yet four out of five people still do not know any symptoms of the disease.
