Dr Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon who was born and educated in Manchester in the United Kingdom. He is also one of the youngest dentists to ever graduate in the UK before working at some of the busiest dental hospitals in the UK and Saudi Arabia. Dr Drabu always had a passion for oral surgery, so on his return to the UK he received his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He is the owner of the very successful Langley Dental Practice in Middleton, North Manchester and the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. He also finds time in his busy schedule to actively tutor and mentor postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Dr Tariq Drabu said, “The Oral Disease Journal recently published that Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD) could be aggravated by certain oral bacteria. This has helped us ascertain that gum disease does in fact play a role in general health. There are one in two hundred and fifty people in the United Kingdom that suffer with Irritable Bowel Disease, one hundred and twenty thousand of them have ulcerative colitis and ninety thousand has Crohn’s Disease.”
Dr Tariq Drabu went on to say, “It is important for patients that suffer with IBD to take care of their teeth and gums. Brushing teeth twice a day for two minutes a time, flossing and using mouthwash can help eliminate the risk of gum disease in all patients, which can help reduce the risk of an IBD flare-up in those suffering from this disease.”
Dr Tariq Drabu closed in saying, “I recommend to all my patients that they watch out for signs of gum disease. Educating patients is an important part of the service we provide at the Langley Dental Practice, as many patients wouldn’t know what gum disease symptoms are. Through education, we can help patients with IBD reduce the risk of a flare-up by visiting their dentist the minute they notice there is a problem.”
