Top 3 Reasons For Professional Anti-Wrinkle Injection

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Customer Care Comes First At Berkeley Clinic

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…

  1. Registered Medical Professionals Duty

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).

  1. Care for the Clients

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.

  1. Prevent Botched Results

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

Have You Always Wanted Straight Teeth?

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.

Options for straightening teeth

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 benefits of Invisalign

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.

General Invisalign information

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.

Teeth Straightening Treatments at our Award- winning Clinic

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.

Protect Your Teeth – Festive Season

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.

Make flossing a foundation of your new oral hygiene routine

Floss-once-a-day
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.

Brush twice a day, every day

Correct-your-Teeth-Brushing-Routine- Berkeley Clinic

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.

Never miss a step in your schedule

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.

Stamp out sugar

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.

Safe Amalgam Removal In Glasgow

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Choosing Safer Alternatives For Our Patients

Replace-Your-Amalgam-Dental-Fillings-in-Berkeley-Dental-Clinic-Glasgow

When it comes to cavities, dental fillings can be a quick and effective solution to unsightly gaps and problematic holes.

Many of us who have undergone treatment for dental fillings in the past, might have been happy with the results, but those who have undertaken the procedure in the distant past may find that the materials used to plug cavities includes potentially harmful substances like zinc, copper and mercury. It’s shocking to think, but some historic dental fillings can contain up to 50% mercury.

Redefine your smile with amalgam removal

If you’re looking to remove potentially harmful amalgam fillings, The Berkeley Clinic is the place to go. We are a mercury free zone and have never used harmful amalgam fillings, relying instead on safer alternatives.

What’s more, our expert team of dentistry professionals are some of the most experienced around when it comes to extraction and removal of amalgam, minimising the risk that mercury can cause and replacing them with much safer alternatives.

Efficient amalgam removal

Regardless of which dental procedure you’re checking in for, one of the main concerns for any patient is speed and efficiency. At The Berkeley Clinic, our team have streamlined steps to ensure no patient has to spend more time than they need to in the chair.

Once you’ve spoken with one of our consultants and agreed upon a course of action that everyone is happy with, we’ll arrange a one-stop procedure to remove multiple amalgam fillings in a single sitting, saving you unnecessary expense, undue pain and discomfort, and valuable time. Our expert team will also talk you through the restorative options available to you, ensuring your smile is returned to its former glory in no time.

The dangers of mercury amalgam

Mercury amalgam used in dental fillings typically contain a minimum of 50% mercury, high concentrations of silver and significant levels of copper. Although mercury has long been used in dental care and fillings, in recent years, there’s been growing concern about individual sensitivity to mercury, implications on pollution, and risk to health.

If you’re concerned that you might be sensitive to mercury and wish to replace your current set of fillings, you’ve come to the right place. If you feel as though you need some further consultation and guidance on the matter, our team will talk you through all the possible implications of maintaining mercury amalgam fillings and the alternative options available to you.

5 Reasons Why You Should Use Adult Braces

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Implications For Oral Health & Confidence

It is common for many adults to neglect straightening misaligned teeth for one very good reason: embarrassment. Too often as dentists and orthodontists Glasgow we hear of the horror stories passed on through the generations of the teenage horrors brought by ‘train track’ braces. From snapped rubber bands to cut lips, we have heard it all. Unfortunately, the stigma of most braces stops many adults from expressing an interest in straightening their teeth. Only 1 in every 100 orthodontic patients are adults.
