Mouth Cancer Awareness Day ’13 is next Wednesday, 18th of September. We, together with over 500 Irish dentists, are offering members of the public free oral cancer examinations. This is a quick and totally pain-free look at your mouth for any suspect areas. We in Burlington Road will be here from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday the 18th for anyone who wants to come and avail of this great opportunity.
Mouth cancer occurrence is on the rise and faster than any other cancer in the last 25 years - as documented in Britain. One problem highlighted by the National Cancer Registry in Ireland, is the late detection of these cancers. The earlier detected, the better the prognosis. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. For more information, follow the link to our website: http://ow.ly/oQRII

"Sugars are converted to acids in the mouth which can lead to decay. This is especially true when we ‘sip’ drinks over the course of a workout or training session. Also when training we tend to become dehydrated which means less saliva, which is an important defensive weapon against decay by diluting and washing away both the sugars and their resultant acids."

We dentists have an obligation to promote the use of well-fitting & properly designed mouthguards to prevent dental trauma. Your dentist is able to address these issues by providing more comfortable, high quality & appealing mouthguards that do not impede on your sporting performance. Your dentist can help to identify high-risk patients and offer advice on the advantages of prevention & the options available to you. Here is Part 2 of our article on Mouthguards & their role in preventing trauma especially to the upper front teeth during sporting activities. http://ow.ly/i/2WBCD http://ow.ly/o9UNH

Many of us have suffered dental injuries caused by some type of sporting activity. The peak incidence of dental injuries is age 9-10 years, which coincides with an increase in sporting activity. Most injuries involve the front upper 4 teeth and these teeth tend to be the most clinically aesthetically challenging and costly to restore. Ideally any activity where the potential for dental trauma can exist should utilize mouthguards to protect these vulnerable front teeth. http://ow.ly/nXpAg http://ow.ly/i/2SZSN
