Lazy Brushing Leads To Bad General Health Says Charity

Lazy Brushing Leads To Bad General Health Says Charity

Laziness can play a massive part in the deterioration of a person's oral health, according to a leading charity.

The British Dental Health Foundation (BDHF) has said that there is a proven link between the state of a person's general health and how well they look after their mouth.

On its blog, the BDHF said that people who feel like they can't be bothered brushing their teeth or don't have time to floss need to bear in mind that their mouth is one of the dirtiest areas of their body and that a neglect of oral hygiene can easily lead to gum disease if bacteria is given time to cultivate.

"A poor oral hygiene regimen can be a bacterial breeding ground and when oral hygiene is neglected or ignored it will eventually cause periodontal disease," it stated.

The post continued to explain that bacterium that is linked with periodontitis can then enter the bloodstream when the gums bleed as a result of the neglect they have suffered. This can then lead to a number of different serious conditions, including heart disease, stroke, inflammation and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

According to the BDHF, the best way to stop gum disease and its advanced form is for people to make sure that they never make excuses for why they haven't cleaned their teeth and stick to brushing at least twice a day and flossing regularly.

As well as the additional problems associated with gum disease if it is allowed to develop, the condition can also severely damage the mouth itself. Some patients may end up suffering from a receding gum line, where the root of a tooth can eventually become exposed.

While this is painful, many people also don't like the way this looks and Museum Dental Suites can help to treat this through dental implants in the form of soft tissue grafting. Prices for any dental implant start from £1,595.



reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.

Look your best, feel your best, expect the best.
