YES, YOU’RE PRETTY TOUGH… You work hard, you’re a remarkable significant other, you’re training for your next challange, and you help with kids sports team on weekends. But guess what? You’re no match for gum disease, tooth decay, or oral cancer without a little assistance.

Men’s Oral Health Risks Are Higher

Medications

Do you take medication for a heart condition, or to regulate blood pressure? Because this is more common in men than women, men are more likely to suffer dry-mouth side effects—and dry mouth increases gum disease and cavity risk.

Tobacco and/or Alcohol Consumption

Men tend to consume more alcohol than women, which greatly increases oral cancer risk.

Routine Oral Hygiene

Men are less likely than women to brush twice a day. Score: Men 66%, Women 86%. C’mon guys…

Regular Checkups

According to a 2011 study, women are almost twice as likely as men to have received a regular dental check-up in the past year.

Your Oral Health Is Connected To Your Body Health

Consider these facts:

  • Some studies have linked periodontal disease to heart problems, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.
  • Men with periodontal disease are 49% more likely to get kidney cancer, and 54% more likely to get pancreatic cancer.
  • Gum inflammation is connected to prostate inflammation which affects many men as they age.
  • Oral cancer kills one person every hour, and the majority of those are men. Screenings during regular check-ups is the best preventive strategy.

COVID-19 UPDATE - November 2020

Despite the latest lockdown we are still open.

Due to social distancing requirements and enhanced infection control procedures we are having to run the practice at a reduced capacity then we would do normally.

Opening hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm Mon-Thurs and 9.00 to 4.00pm Fridays.

Whilst we are doing check ups and routine dentistry we have long waiting times for appointments.

We also run a telephone emergency service during normal working hours. Out of hours advice is available via NHS Direct on 111.

Due to our reduced capacity we are unable to take on new NHS patients but can provide emergency advice and care if appropriate.
