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.

Dental Hypnosis & Anxiety
Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Visiting a dentist isn’t a fun prospect for many people. In fact, it is perfectly normal to experience some anxiety at the thought of sitting in the dentist’s chair. However it may be the case that the prospect of visiting the dentist for you is much worse than feeling a little nervous.
Experience at the Berkeley Clinic
Tuesday, June 10th, 2014
Every year the Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow welcomes dental students from all over UK and Scotland to get some dental experience at the practice. Students apply for the opportunity to shadow the award winning team and to explore a specific area of interest in more depth.
This year we have been visited by a group of dental students from Dundee Dental School who have spent some time with Dr Mike Gow. Dr Gow has presented a lecture on the dental anxiety management techniques. Dental students have observed sedation, hypnosis, cerec and dental anxiety management cases. They have spent a week at the Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow learning about the most advanced dental technology, patient care and shadowing our clinical care team.
Many of them are now off to far flung places to continue their elective studies armed with 150 toothbrushes to donate to children and patients in deprived areas all over the world.
We would like to wish them the best of luck in their studies and future career. It was nice having you here!
