Mouth Cancer Action Month

November 2015 is Mouth Cancer Action Month! This event helps raise awareness about mouth cancer, how to detect it and ways to prevent it.

In the UK, more than 6,700 people were diagnosed with mouth cancer last year.

Mouth cancer can affect anyone, so it's vital that you can recognize the symptoms. It can appear in different forms and affect the mouth, throat, tongue or even your lips. Always check for any changes in your mouth such as redness or swelling, any lumps or ulcers and white blotches.

To discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health, contact any of our dental practices to book an appointment.

Fresh New Talent

Midlands Smile Centres are always on the lookout for fresh new talent to join our friendly and busy teams across our Birmingham dental practices. For further information see our career vacancies.

Is University Bad For Teeth?

University lifestyle could be harmful to a student's teeth. The constant party lifestyle that most students revel in can be seen as the main reason behind unexpected dental problems.

Late nights, excessive alcohol and caffeine high drinks cause dehydration and reduce the saliva flow which helps to protect the teeth.

Carbonated and energy drinks, even sugar-free versions, contain significant acid in the fizz, which soften the enamel on your teeth. If the softened teeth are then brushed, they will wear down fast. Although energy drinks may help students stay awake during lectures the day after a late night, they can cause significant dental problems.

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to talk a student out of a party lifestyle. Midlands Smile Centres would advise families who have a son or daughter away at University to encourage them to do the following to take care of their teeth and prevent dental problems later on in life:

  • Don't brush teeth straight after having carbonated drinks or fruit juice. This could actually damage teeth because tooth enamel is softened by the acid.

  • Wait four hours after having fizzy drinks, before brushing teeth - this gives the enamel time to harden up again.

  • Drink plenty of water, especially if you exercise a lot.

  • If you vomit, do not brush your teeth immediately, but rinse your mouth with water.

  • If you are worried about your son or daughter's dental health, book them a check-up
    at any of our dental practices when they return for the Christmas holidays.
