Teeth Grinding CD

Clenching & Grinding Teeth

Do you tend to grind your teeth? Have you noticed your loved one grinding teeth at night? Teeth grinding or bruxism can affect anyone and cause a number of problems including sleep disorders, stress, migraines, earaches pain in shoulders, back, neck and other types of pain.

Studies have suggested that people are often unaware that they grind their teeth and that in a number of occasions it happens during the night.

If you tend to grind your teeth you are at risk of developing Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD). TMD can cause clicking or locking of the jaw joint and heavily wear down your teeth.

Would you like to stop clenching or grinding your teeth?

Dr Mike Gow has recorded a special CD that can help you to stop clenching and grinding your teeth. The audio lasts for 60 minutes and helps you to relax and think positively and control your mind.

Dr Gow is a well-known dentist from Glasgow and a highly trained and experienced dental hypnotherapist. He has helped a number of people from all over the country and abroad to overcome their teeth grinding and dental anxiety problems.

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!

The Power of Placebo

BBC Horizon CDDo you have a dental anxiety or fear? Would you like to overcome it and have any dental treatment in comfort? Have you ever heard about the benefits of dental hypnosis? Well, the Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow can help you.

Earlier on this year Dr Mike Gow has been featured on the BBC Horizon documentary ‘The Power of Placebo’ and BBC Radio 5. He has demonstrated his abilities to extract teeth without local anaesthetic. Dr Gow used dental hypnosis instead. You can see the video with Mike here.

What is dental hypnosis and how can it help you? Dental hypnosis is used to reduce dental anxiety, discomfort, and even can help to control pain. It is especially beneficial when the patient doesn’t want or can’t take a local anaesthetic during his dental treatment. Through the years Dr Mike Gow has adapted and developed a wide variety of hypnotherapy techniques to help anxious or phobic dental patients. Hypnosis is an extremely valuable tool that helps to make dental treatment experience more comfortable and relaxing.

Recently BBC Horizon has released a CD about the power of human’s mind and hypnotherapy. We would like to thank BBC Horizon team for sending us a CD!

Dr Mike Gow says: ‘Many thanks again to the team at BBC Horizon. It was great to work with them and have the opportunity to demonstrate some of what is possible with hypnosis on national television’.

If you have a dental anxiety or fear don’t hesitate to contact Dr Mike Gow and the Berkeley Clinic on 0141 564 1900.
