With the festive season fast approaching you may be looking forward to indulging in lots of food and drink, but it is worth considering the potential implications of drinking a large amount of alcohol. Most people like a drink now and again and that’s fine, but drinking in excess can contribute to health problems, as well as making you feel miserable, sick and unwell the next day.
It may seem strange to link alcohol to oral health but there is a lot of media attention concerning mouth cancer at the moment – Mouth Cancer Action Month is a means to highlight the risk of alcohol and how it can lead to oral cancer. If you drink and smoke then you are up to 30 times more likely to develop mouth cancer. The number of cases has doubled in the last decade alone and more and more young people are being diagnosed with the disease.
If you are planning to let your hair down this festive season, Chiswick dentists recommend you moderate your alcohol intake and take steps to keep your teeth and gums healthy. A visit to the hygienist may be beneficial, especially if you have indulged in lots of sweet treats. Your hygienist will be able to clean your teeth thoroughly and give them a radiant glow.
Cleaning your teeth twice a day, using mouthwash and dental floss will also help to keep oral health diseases at bay. Hygiene therapy is painless and nothing to be worried about and you will feel the difference immediately.
If drinking a lot of red wine has left your teeth stained, why not arrange to see your hygienist for a deep clean or have treatment like air abrasion? Air abrasion is used to remove heavy staining and involves using compressed air to blow aluminium oxide powder onto the teeth. The treatment will leave your teeth looking bright and feeling smooth.
