Glasgow Dentist West End,
Thinking of skipping a check-up with our Glasgow dentist? 3 reasons to attend Buttercup 7 Day Dental
By Hannah Kemp 11th Sep 2020
Unless you have been living on a desert island, it is likely that you have heard about the ever-popular and fast growing field of cosmetic dentistry.
With almost every dental issue now treatable, you can replace missing teeth with dental implants, you can conceal cracks and chips with veneers and can even undertake invisible braces! Brilliant!
And with many dental surgeries now offering these treatments, they are more affordable and accessible than they ever have been before! But before you decide to book yourself in to have that gap in your smile filled, there is another area that you may have overlooked; general dental care.
While basic dental care is not deemed as exciting as cosmetic dentistry, it is no doubt far more important. After all, every house needs a stable base to be built on and so, every mouth that is about to undergo a cosmetic treatment needs to be in top condition.
At Buttercup 7 Day Dental, our team takes great pride in our general Glasgow dentist, West End, as they are able to provide all of our patients with superior preventive care. Adept at spotting any potential issues and providing fast relief to dental discomfort, our general dentists cannot be beaten in their level of expertise and dedication to maintaining our patients’ oral health!
But why is general dental care so important? Our Glasgow dentist, West End provides the answers to that question below.
While you should never judge a book by its cover, you can often assess how someone’s general health is by looking at their teeth.
Indeed, people who have teeth which are decayed and loose are often also suffering from secondary complications, such as inflammation-based pains, abscesses and issues with digestion. Our Glasgow dentist, West End will always ensure that your oral health is kept in top shape, so you won’t have to worry about an abscess forming or gastrointestinal issues.
With dental care, prevention is always better than cure.
So, if you regularly attend our surgery for check-ups, any potential issues such as oral cancer, tooth decay and periodontal disease will be spotted early. Not only that, but general dental care can reduce your chances of developing cardiovascular disease, cancer and other serious health conditions.
If you are ashamed of your smile due to decay, gaps or issues like swollen gums, it is likely that you will feel self-conscious when out and about. As a result of this, you may have skipped more than one dental check-up due to worries about judgement from your dental practitioner.
As our team at Buttercup 7 Day Dental are trained in how to help those who have dental phobias, we can help you to get your oral and mental health back on track. And, once your oral health has been improved, we can offer you cosmetic options to build your confidence back up if you wish. What’s not to like about that?
So, contact our team today for a check-up at Buttercup 7 Day Dental.
