Healthy mouth, healthy body

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

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

A large proportion of the people who contacted Dentistry @ No3 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. Dentistry @ No3 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 Dunfermline.

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. Dentistry @ No3 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. 

Looking after anxious patients

Please don’t neglect your dental wellbeing because of dental phobia. At Dentistry @ No3 we find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Therefore, our principal dentist Ali, ensures our appointments are calm, unhurried and welcoming.

If you are anxious about your dental or hygiene appointments, try contacting us first for a chat.

We encourage dentally phobic patients to pop in, meet our team and have a look around our Dunfermline 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:

I have been to the practice three times now and have always been made to feel very comfortable. The Covid measures in place are very straight forward and the business has adapted its processes to deal with the current environment. I’ve always been taken on time and my procedure has been made as comfortable as possible. The attention to detail and care given is second to none. I would definitely recommend this practice especially if you have any concerns visiting the dentist. I’d specifically recommend Alisdair. Gillian 5* Google Review

The door to our dental practice is always open to new patients, so please feel free to contact us now for more information. We look forward to meeting you soon.

So glad I chose Dentistry @no3 !When I went for my consultation I was not sure if it would be possible to have work done on my front teeth as they were that bad.I am absolutely amazed at the difference,and looking at the before and after photos, I also agree that Ali is indeed a genius.His lovely manner,the informative way he discussed my treatment during appointments. Totally pain free ! The confidence it has given me also.I cannot thank everyone enough for being so welcoming the minute you walk through the door.I will definitely be recommending this surgery to all my family and friends.

I have always been terrified/anxious going to the dentist. I grind my teeth and have asked my dentist on numerous occasions if there was anything that could be done only to be told I would need gum surgery. That was a definite no from me. I heard about Dentistry @ No 3 and thought I would go along for a chat, never actually thinking I would go ahead with any treatment. I got so excited about what I was told, especially the pain free part that I thought yeah I can do this.Well, Ali and his Team are amazing. I actually think he is a genius 🙂 I was made to feel so relaxed and was informed of everything that was going on. When I saw my new teeth I was so emotional and cannot stop smiling. I cannot recommend this lovely bunch highly enough. Very friendly, professional and defo pain free. Wish I had done it sooner. Thanks so much Ali.

I am one of those people who have been terrified of the dentist since childhood, even to the point of deliberately missing appointments!No longer! I have been going to dentistry at number 3 for 6 years without any problem. Absolutely first rate personnel who provide pain free treatment as promised.

After a terrible experience elsewhere, I hadn’t been to the dentist for 10 years.Despite having to have a tooth removed, it was an entirely pain free experience. I felt very reassured throughout.I’d highly recommend this practice, my new, regular, dentists.

Just had my first appointment with Kirsty and Irene at No 3. I am a very nervous patient and in no way was I looking forward to my time with them. How wrong was I, never have I had the care and attention that this team gave me. The process was explained from start to finish I was asked all through the procedure if I was ok and all of this care continued to put me at my ease . The time with them was painless throughout and it was a joy to experience the skill and pride that Kirsty puts in to her profession with Irene working with her and keeping an eye on me all the time Kirsty was working on my teeth. This team were absolutely excellent cannot thank them enough for the assurance they gave me and have helped alleviate a fear I have of attending the dentist. When No 3 state they are a pain free dentist they practice what they preach . Thank you team Kirsty and Irene you really are first class

I would recommend dentistry at no 3 to anyone looking for a practice which is professional, friendly and amazing at what they do. Rebecca made me feel at ease and took the time to explain everything to me that my treatment would involve. Love the outcome of my treatment and I’m also glad to say it was pain free 😬, thanks again xxx

I have always had a fear of the dentist until I recently came to dentistry @ no 3 and I met rebecca. I had to get some quite invasive treatment which was surprisingly all pain free. Rebecca and her assistant made me feel so relaxed and explained everything she was doing. I never thought I would find myself looking forward to going to the dentist. Anyone who is frightened or apprehensive should definitely visit Rebecca at Dentistry @ No 3.

I had just moved over from Canada and needed dental work. Rebecca treated my cavities and it was the most painless procedure I’ve ever had done! She used specialized needles and I mean it when I say I felt nothing! Rebecca and her staff gave me a very warm welcome to Scotland! Can not recommend enough, especially if you have a fear of the dentist like I do! Will definitely be going back!
