The pandemic has been a tough time for many of us and we hope our readers are keeping well during this 2021 winter lockdown period. Whilst there is hope on the horizon, it’s likely that everyday life won’t resume just yet and consequently, many of us are indulging in simple pleasures, spending more time in the kitchen and enjoying home cooking. It’s great that the U.K has embraced the idea of home cooking but for those with missing teeth, the enjoyment that food brings can become lost.

Here are a few examples of cases that warrant emergency care.
