Corona Virus – Dental Update

Issue Date: 15/6/2020

Dear All

Life Dental & Wellbeing is now open.

We are not running at full capacity yet as we are phasing our return to the new normal so please be patient if you are struggling to get through to us or waiting to hear back from you about an appointment. As expected, the way we operate will be a bit different but please do be reassured that we will continue to look after you and your oral health in a safe clinical environment.

If you have a dental appointment in the coming weeks we will be contacting you the day before to talk through the appointment procedure and ensure that you are happy to attend.

If you have a dental emergency please call the practice during normal working hours and we will endeavour to help you, however please be aware that there are some restrictions on the treatments we can undertake during the current Alert Status. Outside normal working hours and at weekends or on Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the Out of Hours service.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Ben Pearson and the team 

Smoking is the biggest cause of gum disease

Did you know that smoking is the biggest cause of gum disease which in turn is the most common reason for tooth loss in adults?

Smoking can change the type of bacteria in dental plaque, increasing the amount of harmful bacteria in your mouth whilst decreasing blood flow to the gums, causing inflammation and gum disease. By giving up smoking you will not only improve your oral health, but also your general health and your life expectancy. We do understand how difficult stopping smoking is and we will support you as much as we can with advice, guidance and encouragement.
