  • 80-90% of the population grind their teeth to varying degrees

  • Can result in fractures, loose teeth, tooth sensitivity, tension headaches

  • Cause tooth decay by thinning the enamel layer protecting the dentine, allowing demineralisation to occur more rapidly

  • Can be prevented through relaxation and visiting the dentist.


Social life holly

Social Life HOLLY

  • Studies show that alcoholics have three times higher permanent tooth loss than the national average for corresponding ages.

  • Bacteria in the biofilm convert sugars to energy with acid as a waste.

  • Can take up to 20 mins for the pH to stabilise again after drinking.
