Now that the festive season is over, January is the perfect time of year to make a fresh start with your dental healthcare.
Did you know that a healthy smile is the very first thing that people notice when they meet somebody new? With this in mind, it’s just as important to adopt a good dental care routine as it is to exercise regularly and to eat a nutritious diet.
As dentists, we see your mouth as [...]

Have you thought recently about the impact that food and drink can have on your health – and particularly the health of your mouth?
We asked Diane Milmore, a dental nurse tutor and a consultant for Slimming World, to share her knowledge about the benefits of eating a healthy, nutritious diet.
“Hi there. My name’s Diane and I would like to talk to you briefly about diet, your health and your teeth.
Two thirds of us are overweight [...]

We’re delighted to announce that our Ponteland practice has teamed up with Ponteland United FC to sponsor their Under 14s Blues team, which means that the Honour Health logo will be adorning the shirts of the footballers for the 2017-2018 season.
The Ponteland site is our newest practice, which we opened in January 2015 within a beautifully refurbished 19th century property. We originally named the site Ponteland Dental, but earlier this year we re-branded as Honour Health, [...]

However, with so many different products to [...]

It’s a little known fact that the menopause has significant effects on dental health. Did you know that 28% of post-menopausal women are likely to suffer from tooth loss within five years?
Research shows that declining oestrogen levels can alter many oral tissues including gums, salivary glands, jaws and jawbones.

Glaxo Smith Kline have rolled out some of the most effective and controversial advertising campaigns for Corsodyl mouthwash, the theme being: bleeding gums are dangerous – don’t ignore them.
It’s of course alarming to see a young woman returning home after a night out, and removing her dress, breast-lifting pads, hair extensions, false eyelashes – and a dental plate.
There’s also the advert about the woman who applies mascara and her eye bleeds – the narrator asks [...]
