Footballers and rotting teeth!

In a recent study by UCL, shocking statistics were found on the levels of tooth decay and gum disease on footballers. The article was in the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11970016/Premier-League-footballers-plagued-by-rotting-teeth-UCL-finds.html We have certainly seen decay present within the sports industry due to the diet that is often required for energy levels. For instance, energy sports drinks are FULL of sugar. These drinks are often sipped throughout training sessions and therefore there is a high frequency of acid attack on the teeth. We would like to suggest many other ways of maintaining energy levels in a natural way. For example, a banana can provide huge amounts of natural energy. The natural sugars present are far better than added sugar within products. If there are any football clubs that would like to screen their players, feel free to give us a call. We have the highest levels of technology to detect the earliest of tooth decay or gum disease- early intervention and prevention is always best!

Yes, that's right, 4 tablespoons! We are happy to provide education to all to reduce sugar consumption… READ MORE

Hidden Sugars

One of the main causes of tooth decay is sugar in the diet. Not only is the amount of sugar a critical factor but also the frequency of consumption. However, some foods which you may think to be safe and sugar free contain surprisingly high amounts of sugar. For example, did you know that a good dollop of tomato ketchup contains 1 teaspoon of sugar. The same is also for brown sauce. Half a tin of baked beans contains 2 teaspoons full of sugar. The list goes on. It is worthwhile looking on the labels of a… READ MORE
