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.

I visited Queens Drive dental practice today to have an awkward and painful top wisdom tooth extracted. I have had 3 previous excruciating wisdom tooth extractions at other practices and the hospital, so was very nervous going in. My dentist Olivia was amazing right from the moment I came in she completely put me at ease explained what she was going to do so I knew what was coming and when I might feel pressure. She had the anaesthetic in without any discomfort. Chatted to me to take my mind off the procedure and keep me calm. The tooth was out in no time and It was completely pain free! I was so shocked due to my previous extractions and I couldn’t thank her enough! Thanks Queens Drive and Dr Arthur!!!read more
