Dr. Tariq Drabu is a leading dentist and specialist oral surgeon based in Manchester in the United Kingdom.

He received his Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh on his return to the United Kingdom. Today Dr. Drabu owns the successful Langley Dental Practice and is also the Clinical Lead Dentist for the Oral Surgery Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services at NHS Heywood Middleton and Rochdale. He is also an active mentor and tutor to postgraduate dentists in oral surgery at the UCLAN Dental Clinic in Preston.
Dr. Tariq Drabu in Manchester said, “It is a serious concern to note that confectionary purchases online have increased by almost thirty percent in one year, amounting to over £1 million sales. Three percent of all online shopping sales are confectionary purchases. With so much information being released on the effect sugar has on oral health, it is a concern to note that these purchases are actually increasing rather than decreasing.”
Dr. Tariq Drabu went on to say, “Sugar isn’t the only concern when it comes to consumer shopping habits, but diet in general. A healthy diet can help eliminate oral disease and sugar and acidic foods both have a negative impact on oral health with acidic foods wearing down enamel causing dental erosion. Enamel is the hard coating on the tooth and this coating protects the tooth on a daily basis. Eating foods that cause erosion cause small cavities to form, slowing growing in size and becoming painful and resulting in dental treatment.”
Dr. Tariq Drabu closed in saying, “Diets that are filled with fruit, vegetables, vitamins and minerals can reduce the risk of gum disease. Sugar, processed foods and acidic foods should be avoided. There are a range of sugar free options available which should be taken into consideration before making an online purchase. In addition to this, everyone should brush their teeth for at least two minutes twice a day, use dental floss and mouthwash to eliminate plaque build-up and gum disease.”
