Non Essential shops Open!!
Whooo Hooo 2nd Phase of our road map is underway this month!
Non essential shops open and we can get our hair cut-amongst other things. The success of the vaccination programme is one factor how we have been able to progress to this stage. So far nearly 34 million people have had their first vaccination and 13 million have had both. We continue here at Yew Tree to adhere and follow strict Covid-19 restrictions. I am pleased to share that we have all been vaccinated twice now and are continuing our twice a week testing and NHS reporting process.

Mind your Mental Health!
April is Stress Awareness Month and World Health Day
Stress Awareness Month has been held every April, since 1992 to increase public awareness about both the causes and cures for our modern stresses. I think we can all relate to some form of feelings of stress this past year. Stress is one of the great public health challenges of our time, but it still isn’t being taken as seriously as physical health concerns. Stress is a significant factor in mental health. One of the difficulties with stress is that people experience stress in different ways. This contributes to stress manifesting itself differently. Stress targets the weakest part of our physiology or character; if you are prone to headaches cold sores or eczema, this will flare up. Below are a few do’s and don’t to try. If you are prone to getting stressed recognizing it first and foremost is a great place to start.
The Stephan Curve is a graph that shows what happens after the consumption of foods in relation to dental caries. After the sugar/food intake, demineralisation of the tooth surfaces takes place due to the drop in pH as the bacteria in the mouth convert the sugar to acid
Some interesting things to note. You can see:
1. Pretty much every time you eat something, the pH drops below the critical point of 5.5.2. 2. It takes 30-40 minutes for your saliva to get you back to the safe zone. 3. The longer you snack for, the longer you are at risk and the longer it takes for your mouth to recover. 4. If you have something else sugary to eat before your saliva has done its job your curve heads straight back down into acid territory a.k.a the danger zone and your teeth continue to demineralise.
Think about an average day…
1. What do you eat and drink? 2. When do you eat and drink? 3. How much time does your mouth spend in the danger zone?4. How much time does your mouth spend in the safe zone?
Try to track your day and see how many times your teeth are exposed to demineralisation.
