My practice in Manchester sees new patients daily and almost every single one of them will have caries.

Dr Tariq Drabu is a leading Manchester dentist and specialist oral surgeon. He is the owner of the successful Langley Dental Practice and is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for Oral Surgery Assessment Clinic and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. With over twenty five years’ experience in dentistry, Dr Drabu is also a top teacher, mentor and tutor of oral surgery to postgraduate dentists.

Dr Tariq Drabu was talking about a recent article published in the Denistry website on the Colgate announcement of their new sugar acid neutraliser technology. The full article can be found here.

Dr Tariq Drabu in Manchester said “Colgate recently announced their new innovation at the 2014 British Dental Conference and Exhibition on the 11 April 2014. This new innovation can help combat tooth decay also known as dental caries, which is becoming a very serious dental problem throughout the world. It is exciting to know that there are companies such as Colgate that are dedicated to dental health through research and development.”

Dr Tariq Drabu went on to say “Caries is the dental term given to tooth decay and cavities. Studies have revealed that a large number of adults and children around the world have caries and introducing new ways to combat the problem are always welcome. I think it is good news that patients will be able to buy a toothpaste to help eliminate the risk of developing caries. Of course using a toothpaste won’t reduce the need to visit the dentist on a regular basis to check the teeth and ensure there are no problems which need urgent care.”

Dr Tariq Drabu closed by saying “My practice in Manchester sees new patients daily and almost every single one of them will have caries. Educating patients and staff and teaching them ways to combat the problem is taking a step in the right direction. Everyone at my practice is dedicated to patient health and we educate all our patients to ensure they are aware of the problems which can result from poor dental hygiene. I am a strong believer in preventative oral health education and believe with adequate information and education patients of all ages will be able to ensure optimum dental health from correct brushing to the toothpaste they use and by controlling sugar intake and knowing how to identify problems and have them seen to quickly.”
