But Malcolm Harbour, the principal dentist at Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich, reminds us that sugar is not just bad for our waistlines. Instead of saying don’t eat anything sugary, Malcolm has provided some helpful facts and tips to help protect our teeth over the Easter festivities.

Facts

Spread some Christmas cheer with a lovely smile from Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich

If we feel confident about our teeth, we are more likely to smile fully and unselfconsciously. There are lots of benefits of smiling, so spread some happiness in Ipswich  this Christmas with a beaming smile.

Smiling is contagious and studies report that just seeing one person smiling activates the area of our brains that controls our facial movement, which leads to a grin. Smiling also helps lower stress and anxiety because the act releases endorphins in our brains that make us feel calmer and lowers our heart rate.

Mature couple learns from Ipswich dentists that a healthy diet can help ward off mouth cancer

Mature couple learns from Ipswich dentists that a healthy diet can help ward off mouth cancer

Ipswich dentist, Malcolm Harbour, explains that more than 2,000 people lose their life to mouth cancer in the UK every year. Although the number of mouth cancer cases has increased steadily over the last decade, more people are being treated successfully and are living for longer.

Early detection for mouth cancer results in a survival outcome of 90% but delayed diagnosis means survival rates plummet to as little as 50%. So, the message from the dentists at Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich is please ensure you attend regularly for your dental and hygiene appointments. Make it a resolution in 2017 to put your health and wellbeing at the top of your list of priorities.

Fear of the dentist has once again been in the media spotlight recently and we would like to remind our patients that modern dentistry methods make a patient’s visit to the dentist easy and almost completely pain free.

In the UK as a whole, more than 80 per cent of adults suffer from dental decay and 90 per cent experience a degree of gum disease at some time in their life. Regular visits to the dentist are a big factor in preventing this but very often it is dental anxiety that keeps patients away.

Ipswich dentist asks: ‘What does a healthy smile look like to you?’

A girl with a healthy smile from Harbour Dental Care Ipswich

What does a healthy smile look like to you?

As dentists we strive to keep your mouth, teeth and gums in great shape but what makes a smile look healthy in your opinion? This is the question the dental team at Harbour Dental Care in Ipswich asked and here are the top five things we discovered:

Clean and shiny teeth

When it comes to our teeth, it seems that debris, plaque and dull teeth are the epitome of poor health. Healthy teeth are spotlessly clean and shiny – and the best way to achieve this is by brushing our teeth for two minutes, twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. The areas between our teeth are incredibly important too and to get to these hard to reach areas, we suggest using interdental brushes. These tiny brushes are inserted between the teeth to ensure any food particles or plaque are removed.
