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

Just finished my treatment at Dentistry @ No 3 and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Alasdair made me feel confident from my first appointment that the vision I had for my teeth was achievable and they have been finished to the highest standard. The treatment was pain free and I felt comfortable throughout. I would recommend anyone to Dentistry @ No 3!

I have just finished my treatment at Dentistry @ No 3, and I would like to highly recommend this practice to anyone looking to have work done. From my first visit for a free smile consultation until the completion of my work, the staff have been very friendly and highly professional throughout. For someone like myself who has always had a fear of going to the dentist, the thought of getting implants and dentures made was a daunting one. I thought there was no way it could all be pain free, but I have to tell you that it was. From the extractions to the implants and finally the denture creation I felt no pain whatsoever. Ali is a first-class dentist who puts you at ease and does an excellent job. I now have a lovely full set of teeth for the first time in years and have regained my confidence eating while in company. I want to thank everyone at Dentistry @ No 3 for making the whole journey a great experience and also for living up to their promise of providing truly PAIN FREE dentistry. Thank you.

Thank you to Ally and his amazing team at dentistry at No 3. From the first time I went everything was explained to me in detail. I was given top class care throughout my treatment and am delighted with the end results. Not forgetting it was pain free!

Another great pain free visit .Yesterday I got a new front bridge fitted ( having been told from another dental practice this was not possible ) I also got some bonding done to close space on two bottom teeth . Looks very natural . Alisdair makes you feel at ease and listens to your concerns and explains everything .I must also mention the week before , I got the air flow at the dental hygienist for the first time ever . I couldn’t believe the difference it made .I travel 30 miles to attend this dentist . It says it all really . 😁

Hi there!I have had to have treatment yesterday, 22 July '20, at No3 Dental clinic.Have had initial photographs xrays and impressions prior to my having 4 front upper teeth removed.I can honestly say, i felt NO pain during this procedure and even the numbing injections were painless!My Dentist, Alistar, took his time to loosen teeth rather than just pull them so that it protected my bone and gums. After the extractions, i had few dissolvable stitches but felt nothing at all!! He then took time to make sure my comfort denture was perfectly held in place over the extraction site before i left.Having had a lot of treatments done both NHS and Privately, i have no problem recommeding him as the VERY BEST Dentist ive ever had work on my teeth.His attention to detail and to making sure i was painfree and comfortable at all times, is FIRST CLASS!!Also, i must add, that the comfort denture is more like a finished denture!! Better than any ive had made before and I cannot wait until i get my new teeth in about 6 weeks time.Im writing this, the morning after and ive no pain at all.To be honest, ive said that he should charge more for his professionalism expertise and care.Also received a call this morning to check that im ok...and im going again tomorrow for a quick checkup.Whats the saying, You get what you pay for!! Well ive had the Rolls Royce treatment...If youre afraid or nervous, i would HIGHLY recommend Alistar, brilliant Dr of Dentistry.Id also like to mention the staff at this clinic. Leigh was the first person i spoke with and very understanding and intuitive...helped me immensely and put me at ease, no question went unanswered.Barbara and Amy also are lovely and very caring thiughtful people. Barbara called this morning, to make sure i was still feeling well after my treatment.If ive got any names wrong, forgive me. I will correct at later time.Mrs Nori Robertson

I can’t thank Ali and the whole practice at Dentistry at No 3 enough. I have been extremely unhappy with my smile for as long as I can remember and it has really affected my confidence and daily life. I am really glad I choose this practice to fix my smile and I am extremely happy with the results. The treatment was totally pain free and everyone was very helpful. Any worries I had they were there and any reassurance I needed was given. I highly recommend Dentistry at No 3. Thanks guys for helping me on this journey.

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!

Having attended the same dentist for 40 years I was rather apprehensive when a new team took over the practice but my fears have been allayed and my recent experiences at the surgery have been very good.Everyone is friendly and caring and my treatment pain free. Thanks to everyone involved.
