Tooth Wear Awareness Month and newly emerging contributors

This October, the team at the London Tooth Wear Centre® is committed to promoting Tooth Wear Awareness Month.

The aim of Tooth Wear Awareness Month is to raise public understanding across the UK of this growing problem. Some of this is attributable to newly emerging contributors, such as one of the latest food fads – the alkaline diet.

The alkaline diet may reduce inflammation, a feature of many diseases such as heart disease and arthritis. However, in contrast to its alkalising effect on the body, some of the recommended food can have erosive effects in the mouth, either because they have an acidic pH or, when chewed, can become acidic.

The problem may then be further exacerbated by tooth brushing after eating foods with a low pH, or in addition to bruxism.

As always, it is important to consider this information in the wider context. The London Tooth Wear Centre® offers an evidence-based and comprehensive approach to managing abrasion, attrition and erosion, utilising the latest clinical techniques and an holistic approach in a professional and friendly environment. It is headed up by Clinical Director Professor Andrew Eder, a Specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics. He is also Associate Vice-Provost and Director of Life Learning at UCL.

If you are concerned that any of your patients are showing signs tooth wear, simply visit www.toothwear.co.uk, email info@toothwear.co.uk or call 020 7486 7180.
