This October, the London Tooth Wear Centre is offering complimentary tooth wear consultations (while appointments last) as part of its Tooth Wear Awareness Month.
The aim of Tooth Wear Awareness Month is to raise national awareness of this growing problem.
The most recent statistics from the Adult Dental Health Survey, 2009 indicate that over 75% of adults and more than 50% of children show signs of tooth wear. If we continue as we are, this is set to get worse.
The complimentary consultation will ascertain whether your patient is suffering from tooth wear, as well as offer advice to help prevent further problems if appropriate. The patient will also be advised to continue to consult with you for their routine care as appropriate.
The London Tooth Wear Centre offers an evidence-based and comprehensive approach to managing abrasion, attrition and erosion, utilising the latest clinical techniques and an holistic approach in a professional and friendly environment. It is headed up by clinical director Professor Andrew Eder, a specialist in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. He is also professor/honorary consultant at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.
If you are concerned that any of your patients may be showing signs of tooth wear, simply ask them to contact the London Tooth Wear Centre by call 0207 486 7180 or email [email protected] to set up an appointment for a complimentary consultation.
