Visiting the dentist is a necessary part of life if someone wants to maintain a good balance with regards to their health. For this reason, it is our mission at Smile Dental Care Glasgow to ensure that patients have a positive experience when undergoing treatment. To do this, we have created a warm and relaxed atmosphere for patients to feel comfortable in. It is estimated that up to 36% of the dental population have some sort of dental phobia, according to the journal Medical Principles and Practices. Consequently, this phobia can potentially stop patients from going to the dentist, therefore neglecting their overall health. It is for this reason that we offer a full range of dental services in an easygoing and non-intimidating style to ensure people can look after themselves with ease.
Services offered by your dentist in Glasgow
We offer a full range of services including, but not limited to, general dentistry, implants, cosmetic, and preventive dentistry. This way, we can address a diverse population of patients’ needs and give our expert advice on what suits each unique patient.
General dentistry includes root canal treatment, amalgam fillings, emergency dental care, extractions or oral surgeries, and crowns. In short, general dentistry treatments pertain to your overall oral health. These routine services can extend into more specialised services such as preventive, cosmetic, and implant dentistry.
Preventive dentistry is often overlooked, but is an essential, dental service. Routine dental checks can prevent a plethora of potential dental problems down the line, such as root canal infection, tooth decay, and even loss of teeth. The general advice for a routine check-up is to visit your dentist in Glasgow every six months. However, the oral health of each patient is unique, and they may need to see the dentist more or less frequently accordingly.
Cosmetic dentistry is an ever-growing popular field of dentistry, as it can improve the smile of any patient. Some preventive measures, such as a healthy lifestyle and maintaining good oral health, are sometimes just not enough. Misalignment of your teeth and your bite are inherited traits, which means no amount of healthy living will fix them. In addition to these kinds of problems, misalignments can cause low self-esteem and increase the likelihood of infection because crooked teeth can hinder adequate cleaning.
A remedy for this is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a Greek word that translates into ‘straighten teeth’. The tried and true method of straightening teeth is to use braces. Traditional metal braces have been proven to fix even severe misalignments. However, if you feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces for any reason, we also offer Invisalign or ‘invisible braces’. More accurately, they are removable clear aligners made from a thermoplastic that is custom fitted to the patient. They are considered a revolutionary treatment. Invisalign has grown to treat over 8 million users since its conception in the late 1990s.
At Smile Dental Care, patients can relax, knowing they are in the capable and experienced hands of our dentist in Glasgow. Rest assured we will give you the best advice on whatever your dental issue is, because we believe that every person should be happy with their teeth.
