Corona Virus – Dental Update
Issue Date: 29/05/2020
We are very pleased to announce that Life Dental & Wellbeing will reopen on Monday 8th June.
However there will be some changes to the way we work which we will let you know about in due course, and we would appreciate your patience and understanding whilst we finalise our operating procedures.
In the meantime, if you have a dental problem please phone 07566 781469 between the hours of 9-11am any weekday morning and we will advise you as to how we are able to help.
Outside these hours and at weekends or Bank Holidays please call the practice for further information that will guide you through the out of hours service.
We have missed you all very much and would like to thank you for your continued support of the practice and your understanding during what has been a very difficult time behind the scenes.
Take care, stay safe and we really will see you very 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.
