Healthy mouth, healthy body

Covid-19 has highlighted the importance of our health, say Glasgow dentists

“Healthy mouth, healthy body” is an old saying that has never been more important, explains Glasgow dentist Olivia.

A large proportion of the people who contacted Queens Drive Dental Practice during lockdown with dental emergencies had not visited a dentist for more than a year. We always stress the importance of regular dental health examinations, so that any issues can be spotted early – before they become painful and more difficult to treat.

Dental health and fighting Covid-19

New research published in the British Dental Journal recently by Dr V. Samsoon linked poor oral health and coronavirus. It explained that our mouths include a healthy amount of bacteria, called microbiome, that can normally be exchanged between our mouth and our lungs.

When we have poor oral health, pathogenic bacteria (bad bacteria that cause disease) start to accumulate in our mouths and destroy that healthy balance. These bacteria can also be breathed into our lungs.  

One way these bacteria make us more vulnerable is by increasing our susceptibility to viral infections. Furthermore, when we are not healthy or we are infected by a viral infection they start to proliferate and create what is called a bacteria superinfection. This further compromises our already burdened immune system and in that way creates severe complications like pneumonia or acute respiratory syndrome.

Not seen a dentist for more than 12 months?

We know that it has been difficult to keep on top of regular dental visits over the past few months due to the government’s decision to close dental practices. Queens Drive Dental Practice is delighted to have reopened and we have heavily invested in anti-virus protection, on top of our usual strict decontamination measures.

If you are searching for reassuringly safe dental care, contact us today. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our dental practice in Glasgow.

Poor dental health risks

Is fear making you neglect your teeth?

Corporate dental insurers Unum Dental carried out some research last year that revealed some interesting facts. According to a survey of more than 2,000 private sector employees, more than a fifth (24%) of British workers say that a fear of feeling pain or discomfort is the reason they avoid the dentist.

Women were found to be more afraid, with over a quarter (27%) declaring that they put off the recommended two dental health examinations a year out of fear of pain, compared to 22% of men.

Poor dental health risks

Poor dental health is linked to heart disease, bacterial lung infections, premature births, diabetes and strokes, meaning regular visits for dental health reviews are vital to maintaining good general health and dental wellbeing.

We know that it has been difficult to keep on top of regular dental visits over the past few months due to the government’s decision to close dental practices. Queens Drive Dental Practice is delighted to have reopened and we have heavily invested in anti-virus protection, on top of our usual strict decontamination measures to help put your mind at rest.

Please don’t neglect your dental wellbeing because of dental phobia. At Queens Drive Dental Practice we find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Therefore, our principal dentist  John Paul, ensures our appointments are calm, unhurried and welcoming.

We encourage dentally phobic patients to pop in, meet our team and have a look around our Glasgow  dental practice before going anywhere near a dental chair. But don’t just take our word for it, here are some testimonials from our patients:

What Our Patients Say

Morgan
Morgan
I had an awful black filling that needed seeing to due to lock down. This had always been an eye sore that gave me real smile and confidence issues. Olivia talked me through all of my options and I opted for a lovely white crown, the difference is massive and my experience was brilliant. I don’t think I’ll dread the dentist anymore. Thanks Olivia for making my smile lovely again!read more
