The Oral Health Foundation were joined by a room full of campaigners and supporters yesterday at the Houses of Parliament, as the charity launched this year’s Mouth Cancer Action Month.
More than 130 people from a variety of different organisations were in attendance and heard from a range of speakers reinforcing the need for greater recognition of mouth cancer and its signs and symptoms.
Sir Paul Beresford MP, the event’s parliamentary sponsor, brought the room to order and used his introductory speech to talk about the “vast improvements in prevention” in recent times in combatting mouth cancer risk factors like smoking and alcohol. Sir Paul also highlighted the success of the gender equality campaign with the introduction of the HPV vaccination for boys and the importance ensuring high rates of inoculation across all genders.
The Oral Health Foundation’s Chief Executive Dr Nigel Carter OBE spoke about the devastating rise...
I’m sure we all know about blue Mondays. Those Monday morning blues after the weekend never quite seem to leave you.
For most mouth cancer patients, their cancer blues will almost never leave them. There will always be a reminder of what they went through every day. Whether it’s their speech, their ability to eat and drink, or even just the ability to breathe properly, there is no getting away from it.
For this year’s Mouth Cancer Action Month, we’re asking everyone to show their support by making Wednesday 13 November ‘Blue Wednesday’.
You can buy a blue ribbon badge, pick out something blue to wear or don on a bright blue lipstick. Help us to raise awareness of mouth cancer by showing your support.
How to take part in Blue Wednesday
Find something blue
Chances are you will have something blue in your wardrobe, but we’d like you to be more creative than that! Why not find something from a charity shop that raises money for cancer? You wi...

Scary movies, ghost walks, silly costumes, the paranormal - just a few of the things that we associate with Halloween. Typically for children, Halloween is about dressing up and knocking on our front doors asking us to fill their buckets with chocolate, sweets and snacks. But while the night may be fun and enjoyable for all, it could turn out to be a particularly ghastly one for teeth.
Letting children enjoy themselves but finding a compromise could benefit your child's oral health in the short and long term. And remember, it's not just children this applies to. After all, how many parents out there are dipping into their children's sweets after sending them to bed?
Halloween is now the third largest shopping season after Christmas and Easter, with UK shoppers estimated to spend around £474 million this year. Shopping aisles are stocked wall to wall with costumes and pumpkins, but we believe the real horror lies in the treats.
According to the Oral Health Fo...

Before we get into the importance of replacing teeth, let's address the most common question first: what exactly is a dental implant anyway? A dental implant is a tiny, but extremely strong, titanium alloy screw which is used while surgically replacing damaged or missing natural teeth. It is drilled into the jawbone, so that the screw can firmly connect the artificial teeth or any other dental prosthesis to the jaw. In addition to its use in replacing broken/missing teeth, implants can also be used to provide support to loose, removable dentures. Now that you know what a dental implant is exactly, let's take a look at why replacing lost or badly damaged teeth is important in the first place.
Appearance Superficial as it may sound to someone who has all their teeth, even a single missing tooth can put a lot of emotional stress on us. In varying degrees, we are all somewhat concerned about our appearance, and it affects our co...

Teeth whitening is a somewhat controversial topic in the world of dentistry. It is a popular service offered by a large number of professionals especially cosmetic dentists, but some see it as a potential health hazard if done too much or incorrectly.
Unfortunately, it is also offered by many non-professionals who are not qualified to carry out procedures. There is also a lot of misinformation on the topic on the Internet, further making it difficult to assess the situation for someone who’s interested in getting their teeth whitened. And as usual, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.
A quick search for teeth whitening online will reveal a huge number of DIY kits meant to be purchased and used at home. Some even have glowing reviews, but the reality is that a large number of those products can be dangerous and are not tested properly. Or, in cases where the product does work as it should, it can be harmful in the hands of an inexperienced user wh...

One of the major issues facing dentists, patients and patients wallets is that the majority of us don't visit the dentist on a regular basis. According to research from NHS Digital (previously the Health and Social Care Information Centre) half of UK adults haven't been to the dentist in the last two years. More than a quarter of adults only visit the dentist when they have a problem.
The infrequency and irregularity of dental check-ups is causing a huge number of problems for us. The facts say a lot here with 31% of adults having tooth decay, 66% of us having visible plaque and 29% of the population suffering from regular pain in the mouth or teeth.
How Often Should You Visit the Dentist
Both adults and children should visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend. For those with certain medical conditions, your dental team may want to see you more often.
It is also important to remember that certain types of medication may impact our oral health too, for in...
More and more states are trying to enact some type of ban on e-cigarettes -- but are meeting resistance.
In the new study, researchers from Penn State University College of Medicine analyzed blood samples from six Juul users who were asked to puff on their device every 20 seconds for 10 minutes -- a total of 30 puffs.
In a survey, researchers found that almost half of Americans in their 50s and 60s believed they were at least "somewhat likely" to develop dementia. Yet few -- 5% -- said they had talked to their doctor about ways to lower their risk.
Their analysis of data from nearly 165,000 adults nationwide showed that the number who reported difficulty falling asleep at least once a week was up 1.4% between 2013 and 2017, and those who had trouble staying asleep rose 2.7%.
In the new trial, colchicine reduced by as much as 34% a heart attack survivor's combined risk of either dying from heart disease or having cardiac arrest, a heart attack, a stroke or angioplasty.
However, the results of a large and long-awaited clinical trial suggests that, in most cases, these procedures may not have provided any benefit over medications and lifestyle changes.
Heart disease occurs an average of 15 years earlier in people with diabetes, and is their main cause of illness and death. In women, the connection between diabetes and heart disease is particularly strong.
GoRaw LLC, doing business as Steve’s Real Food, has recalled its 2-pound bags of frozen Quest Beef Cat Food.
New studies included millions of doses of Gardasil 9 vaccine, the only vaccine currently used in the United States for the prevention of HPV-related cancers.
President Donald Trump, who pledged in September to ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes, says that he wants to study the issue before taking any action.
