Top 3 Reasons For Professional Anti-Wrinkle Injection
Wednesday, January 16th, 2019
The growth in anti-wrinkle injections has been overwhelming in the last 20-30 years with more people wanting to look and feel younger.
When planning on getting anti-wrinkle injections, it is vital to seek out a professional administrator first. Here are 3 reasons why…
With the growth and popularity of anti-wrinkle treatments in the UK, there are more surgeries, cosmetic clinics and now department stores offering these procedures. It is much easier now to receive these treatments from anyone and everyone disguising as a trained professional.
However, the reality is that the solution injected to relax the facial muscles is a medical prescription that can only be administered by doctors, nurses, dentists and pharmacists. These medical professionals can then assess the client and the trained professional to deliver the treatment correctly. You can check that the prescription was authorised by a registered medical professional through the General Medial Council (GMC).
Getting anti-wrinkle injections can be a daunting procedure for many clients. The trained professional delivering the treatment should first get the green light from the registered medical professional to ensure the patient is safe to go ahead with the injection. It is vital that the client visits the prescriber face to face for a consultation to ensure there are no underlying issues that may result in a botched injection, such as pregnancy or allergies.
By visiting a highly trained professional when receiving your anti-wrinkle injection, you do not risk a botched end result.
The cosmetic clinic or treatment area should be clean and sanitised to prevent infection. If the person delivering the injection is not highly trained or has not done the treatment properly then this could result in impaired vision, breathing difficulties and drooping facial features.
To ensure your clinic is well trusted and established then look for reviews on social media from previous clients. Checking the prices of the treatment is also a good indicator on legitimacy. If the treatment looks extra cheap this may mean the solution has been diluted or the person giving you the injection hasn’t been trained or isn’t authorised to go ahead with the treatment.
The Berkeley Clinic have been delivering excellence in aesthetic procedures for over 20 years with highly trained, experienced professionals. They were one of the first cosmetic clinics to offer anti-wrinkle treatments in Scotland and now have a reputation of excellent customer care and unbeatable results.

Berkeley Teeth Straightening Solutions
Tuesday, May 16th, 2017
Many people long for a straight, even smile. If you don’t feel confident when smiling with your mouth open, or if you tend to cover your mouth with your hand as you speak due to your crooked or uneven teeth, then you may benefit from teeth straightening dental treatment at the Berkeley Clinic.
In the past, most teeth straightening options revolved around fixed braces. Fixed braces can still be useful in some cases, but newer and more modern treatments have been developed in recent years, such as Invisalign. Invisalign works via ‘invisible braces’; a set of clear, removable retainers that help to move your teeth into a more desirable position.
The main benefit of Invisalign retainers is that they are almost impossible to detect. They are made from a transparent plastic that has been specially designed to fit your teeth perfectly.
They are removed for eating and drinking, and then worn the rest of the time. They are ideal for anyone with a big event planned, such as a wedding, as they are one of the quickest ways to align your teeth.
Invisalign helps to solve many common issues such as crowding, spacing, under and overbites. Invisalign provides quick and visible results, which helps to boost the morale of patients.
Orthodontic treatment can be a little daunting, but here at the Berkeley Clinic we are on hand to provide you with all the information and support you need. There are lots of things to consider when starting teeth straightening treatment but our friendly staff will be able to advise what treatment is best for you.
If you decide to go ahead with Invisalign clear braces treatment, we will make moulds of your teeth and will create an individualised plan. You will then be provided with a set of aligners. Some people only need a few, while others may need more, depending on the severity of any teeth issues. You will wear each set of retainers for approximately two weeks, and each new retainer will move your teeth into a new position.
Invisalign is a simple and easy treatment. For best results, the retainers should be worn 22 hours a day, so that your teeth do not move back into their original position.
If you are interested in Invisalign or would like to hear about the other teeth straightening methods we have available at the Berkeley Clinic then call us on 0141 564 1900. We are currently offering straight teeth consultations worth £99 for free so take the first step to perfect your smile today.
What You Need to Know About Dental Implants
Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017
Dental implants are the ideal way to restore your smile and to provide improved dental health. They are a great solution for missing teeth, and are a much more sturdy and long-lasting solution than traditional dentures or bridges.
They can be used to replace one or two teeth, or more, and at The Berkeley Clinic we are able to completely tailor our treatment to each individual patient. Dental implants take into account the unique shape and dimensions of each and every mouth, to create a smile that is subtle and natural.
The procedure will take place under local anaesthetic, so that it is completely painless and stress-free. The dental implants are formed by inserting an artificial root carefully and precisely into the jaw bone. Once it has healed and fused with the jaw, artificial teeth can be secured to the implant to create a beautiful, even, and secure smile.
Some patients may only need one implant, while others may need two or more; in cases where a larger set of dentures is needed, several implants can be used to hold them in place to make eating and drinking easier.
Many people may feel nervous about having dental implants, but The Berkeley Clinic’s friendly team are experienced with anxious patients and will help you to feel calm and relaxed throughout your treatment.
The main benefit of dental implants is that they are tailored to each individual, and will create a smile that is aesthetically pleasing as well as practical and functional. Our dental implants are made from durable titanium, meaning that if they are placed well and properly maintained, 95% of dental implants will last for many years without needing further work or replacement. The titanium implants also make existing teeth stronger, helping to increase their longevity.
Each implant can be adjusted, and the replacement teeth can be coloured to match your existing teeth, so that they sit cohesively alongside each other. From dazzling white to more understated shades, your teeth will look completely natural.
Dental implants also help to benefit overall oral health. Because they are permanent, they can be cleaned and flossed just like normal teeth.
Traditional dentures can be cumbersome, high-maintenance and may restrict the diet of the person wearing them. They can make chewing difficult, so that patients may be restricted to soft and liquidised foods. Dental implants fully restore the ability to chew and enjoy a variety of foods; so while looking great is a benefit of dental implants, many patients are even more pleased about the way they can expand their diet.
They also help to manage bone loss and facial sagging, which are common issues for wearers of traditional dentures. Solving facial sagging quickly enables patients to look more youthful, with a replenished appearance.
If you think dental implants might be for you then contact our friendly care team today to discuss your options. We are currently offering consultations at a reduced rate of only £99, so book your appointment and start smiling with confidence today.
Holistic Dental Treatment Glasgow
Friday, April 28th, 2017
In addition to cutting-edge equipment and pioneering techniques, we’re firm believers in the holistic approach to dentistry.
We don’t just target a single problem head on with a one-size-fits-all solution, instead we look at the wider picture along with our patients, investigating all aspects of dental health to fully determine what the issue might be that’s causing them pain, discomfort and embarrassment.
The teeth, gums and oral tissues aren’t just crucial for healthy eating and aesthetic reasons, they’re an indicator of other problems within the body. By taking a holistic approach, we can provide you with a long-lasting solution and can also identify deeper health concerns that might need addressing.
Although dental professionals have deemed mercury amalgam fillings to be safe, many patients report several side effects and health implications after having mercury fillings installed into cavities. Many patients report feelings of tiredness and fatigue, general uneasiness and a foggy head that they often relate to mercury fillings.
That is why at The Berkeley Clinic, we provide safe amalgam removal. This is one area where our holistic approach really comes into its own and our experts will work closely with you to discuss your symptoms, case history and concerns to provide you with a treatment plan that works for you.
Mercury is an incredibly toxic metal. Like other heavy metals like lead, mercury can be harmful to your health and can cause severe cases of poisoning when it leeches into the body.
Mercury can also cause adverse allergic reactions. Between 1-5% of the population exhibits allergic reactions to mercury, meaning a large proportion of dental patients cannot accommodate mercury amalgam fillings at all and should be seeking alternatives.
What’s more, mercury can trigger auto-immune responses in the body, a potentially devastating condition which can turn something as simple as a cavity into a life-threatening risk.
Our techniques for amalgam removal are not only safe, but quick, leaving you with first-rate results without the hassle.
We provide clean air supply and then commence high-speed mercury vapour evacuation. Sealed mercury proof rubber dams are used to ensure that exposure is kept to a minimum, while same day ceramic reconstructions are available to provide you with the replacement you need in no time at all. You can read more about safe amalgam removal in our brochure.
Mercury amalgam fillings were originally used in dentistry because they were relatively inexpensive and easy to fit. Today, these types of fillings are still commonly used for the same reasons.
However, they are a poor choice when it comes to bio-compatibility and there are several other options which are much more effective. Ceramic inlays are a particularly desirable alternative, with cast models made from computer imaging. This alternative isn’t just a more attractive alternative because it is free from harmful chemicals, it can also restore a tooth after a filling is removed, leaving patients with a healthier, more natural looking smile.
Composite resin fillings are another choice for patients, but like mercury amalgam fillings, these aren’t bio compatible and don’t last as long as ceramic alternatives.
Dr Stewart Wright has grown an international reputation for his holistic approach to treating patients. The Berkeley Clinic have never placed mercury amalgam fillings. When patients come to us looking for help filling cavities or replacing old ones, we’ll always provide a metal free alternative that leaves patients with a healthier mouth and total peace of mind.
What’s more, we pride ourselves on utilising the latest technologies, techniques and after-care processes to ensure every patient is left with the best possible result, every time.

Understanding TMJ – Berkeley Clinic Glasgow
Friday, February 24th, 2017
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your lower jaw to the skull. TMJ syndrome is pain and discomfort in the jaw joint that can be caused by a whole host of medical problems.
Although many sufferers of the syndrome note a popping or clicking sound as first evidence of the condition, others suffer from more pronounced and painful symptoms.
Many sufferers of temporomandibular joint syndrome have more than one symptom. Sometimes, these symptoms can be as simple as a minor clicking or popping sensation in the jaw joint. Other times, individuals may experience more pronounced pain in the head, neck and shoulders.
As the condition becomes more painful and difficult to live with, individuals may experience more intense pain in the teeth when biting, headaches and migraines and sore muscles in the face and jaw while chewing. There are more visible symptoms to watch out for as well, including limited movement of the jaw, along with physical identifiers like the way the teeth meet when the jaw is clenched.
Causes of TMJ Injury to the jaw or temporomandibular joint can lead to TMD. These injuries can range in severity, from a knock to the head to regularly clenching the jaw in an improper way.
Essentially, any disruption to a healthy motion of the jaw can lead to locking or persistent pain. The balance of the teeth and jaw system needs to be healthy and maintained, otherwise individuals stand a strong chance of developing TMD.
If you are experiencing symptoms and don’t go to your dentist to get checked and treated, then you risk worsening the problem. This can heighten your levels of discomfort and can result in the progression of more serious conditions.
The Berkeley Clinic offers an innovative solution in the diagnosis of TMJ. At the BioPAK Centre, we offer an intensive and comprehensive way to investigate the health of your jaw and teeth and how they bite together.
If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident or suffered a serious injury to your face, suffer from regular pain in the back, neck and face, suffer from headaches or migraines or experience discomfort in the teeth when chewing, our diagnostic centre offers a reliable way of identifying the presence of serious TMJ disorders.
We can use JVA (joint vibration analysis) to determine the condition of your jaw joint in as little as 20 minutes. If we note any issues, we’ll provide recommendations for further actions.
If you’ve noticed that your teeth aren’t clenching together correctly, a T-scan is another option. At the BioPAK Centre, we can arrange a T-scan to properly assess your bite accurately, providing you with a fantastic foundation for tailored dentist treatment to restore balance to your bite.
If your scan identifies that an injury has led to damage your jaw, we can provide you with a medico – legal report that can be used in legal proceedings. This is particularly useful for those looking for settlement with a Personal Injury Lawyer and provides a reliable dental perspective for your case.
It is also important to note that there are certain exercises for TMJ pain relief you can do at home to help ease any pain caused by TMJ. These exercises are thought to relax the jaw, strengthen jaw muscles and reduce jaw clicking. They involve moving your jaw joints in certain ways, our expert clinicians can advise the best exercises for you.
Mouth guards can also be used to prevent teeth grinding and jaw clenching and also to help realign your jaw. Additionally, you can take ibuprofen or hold warm towels or ice against the area, to help relieve the pain.

Do You Suffer From Dental Phobia & Anxiety?
Thursday, February 9th, 2017
Dental phobia and anxious patients are incredibly commonplace. Although some patients express reservations about visiting the dentist out of embarrassment, many more find even the simplest procedure incredibly stressful and emotionally taxing.
At the Berkeley Clinic, we’re not only experts in dental treatment and cosmetic procedures, we’re innovators in alternative approaches to putting our patients at ease.
We understand that dental fear can put off individuals from visiting the dentist for months, if not years at a time. Sometimes, the most unfounded of fears can lead to a minor dental problem transforming into a serious condition over time, causing more stress and hassle down the line.
Unlike other establishments that rely on conventional anaesthesia, we’ve pioneered a revolutionary selection of treatments and therapies to help put even the most anxious of patients at ease, meaning even the most involved procedures can be carried out with ease.
We’re one of the only clinics in Scotland that offer patients with dental fear and phobia a full-service solution. Our clinical team aren’t just some of the best trained in the business, they’re also trained in alternative approaches to help put anxious individuals at ease.
Dental hypnosis not only relaxes those who feel uneasy, it can also transform the way those with anxieties approach dental health in the future. Dental hypnosis has a wide range of benefits and applications, including but not limited to, anxiety management and relaxation, phobia management, pain control and more.
It can also be used as a successful treatment of stress related conditions like recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis and TMJ dysfunction. Hypnosis can also be used to modify oral habits for the best, helping stave off damage caused by lifestyle habits like smoking, nail biting and more.
At the Berkeley Clinic, one of our most celebrated approaches to reducing anxiety in our patients is Conscious Sedation. This method essentially involves the use of drugs to depress the central nervous system, relaxing the patient while still maintaining a high enough level of consciousness that the patient remains verbal and communicative throughout.
There are three main types of conscious sedation, including inhalation, oral and intravenous. Inhalation sedation is one of the quickest and safest approaches, ideal for more basic procedures and a go-to for children and patients who might have issues with other procedures.
Intravenous sedation is a more effective method and produces more rapid states of sedation. It’s often used with more involved dental procedures and despite some minor side effects like mild amnesia, it’s often lauded by patients who’ve experienced it. Finally, oral sedation involves the consumption of a sedative drug in liquid or tablet form. This can help diminish feelings of anxiety and dental fear.
If you’re looking to overcome dental fear and pursue procedures to fix your smile or resolve a long-standing oral health issue, get in touch with the team at the Berkeley Clinic today.

Dental Care Plans Glasgow
Wednesday, January 4th, 2017
The festive period isn’t just an enemy of your waistline, over-indulgence during the Christmas break can lead to major setbacks with your teeth and gums. If overhauling your oral hygiene regimen is at the top of resolutions for the New Year, why not see how The Berkeley Clinic can help you meet your goals?
With an expert team of oral health professionals, we are your go-to destination for when you’re looking to get your teeth in order.
Talk to the team today about our treatment plan, from teeth whitening solutions and smile makeovers, to Invisalign braces and dental implants for those more noticeable cosmetic woes. In the meantime, we’ve put together a few tips on how to make those first few steps towards a healthy, happy smile in time for the New Year.
For decades, we’ve been told the benefits of flossing, but many have yet to take up flossing as a cornerstone of daily dental upkeep.
Conventional brushing only provides you access to about two-thirds of surface area of the tooth, meaning there’s always going to be stray square inches that are left untouched and in need in desperate need of a clean. These unattended areas of the mouth are hotbeds for bacteria build up, particularly in the problem areas of the jaw where cavities are known to develop and gum disease is more likely to make a foothold before causing unsightly bleeding and painful inflammation.
Problems within the mouth can lead to a whole host of problems away from the teeth and gums themselves, with a raised risk of heart disease, arthritic conditions and diabetes. Even just a short spell flossing can make a huge improvement, so fit it into any available space in your schedule and start perfecting your floss techniques from today.
No matter how simple or substantial your dental hygiene ritual, it’s not going to make the difference you want unless you’re consistent. Make sure you’re brushing your teeth at least twice a day to keep on top of the minimum of maintenance needed to stave off more serious conditions from taking hold causing the need for specialist dental treatment.
You’ll always want to make sure you’re brushing your teeth for a minimum of two minutes, every time you’re stood there in front of the vanity mirror.
It can be all too easy to miss a few brushes in your schedule, but if you’re one who is prone to missing out on evening brushes, make sure this is a key area of focus. Bacteria can cause huge deposits of acid to form across the teeth throughout the night if left unattended, while a decreased rate of saliva protection while you sleep means there’s a perfect storm of conditions going on within the mouth that might lead to common dental complaints down the line.
Give yourself a real shot at maintaining a beaming smile with minimal effort just by ensuring that evening brushing session is never skipped in the future.
Sugar is a killer of healthy smiles. Not only does excess sugar stand as a key contributor to the build-up of bacteria, it can ultimately lead to the formation of cavities and start-up of teeth decay in otherwise healthy mouths.
Cutting out excess levels of sugar is not only a smart move your waistline, the effects will be felt immediately within your mouth. Consider swapping out high-risk foods for new ones if you worry you’ll fail to maintain your new food plan and eating schedule.
Here at The Berkeley Clinic, our expert team are committed to providing premium dental care and treatments to help support your New Year’s resolutions. Whether you need to discuss a consultation with one of our dentistry professionals or want to talk more about the dental plans and treatment packages available, we’re happy to talk.
