Childsmile

At Millersneuk Dental Practice we are always striving to improve the oral health of young people that visit the practice, providing expert dental care for children. We believe that if we can get dental patients into good habits from a young age, this will prevent the need for fillings in the future.

Millersneuk take part in the nationwide Childsmile campaign – this involves regular trips to the dentist for fluoride application, oral hygiene advice and fissure seals, and is backed up by oral health promotion in schools and nurseries.

The Childsmile programme starts from birth so don’t hesitate to get in contact to register your child today.

Fed up of dentures? Consider dental Implants

Some patients find that full conventional dentures can provide  problems such as pain, difficulties with speech and trouble eating.   This can result in the need to use messy fixatives daily to hold dentures in place. We sometimes forget that conventional dentures are not the only option.

An implant retained denture works by having a couple of implants placed into the jaw. Once healed we construct a new denture that fits over the implants. This prevents movement and stabilises the denture. This is a more cost effective way to achieve a stable denture than full mouth implants.  This can provide many benefits including an increase in confidence when eating in public and improved speech.

What are you waiting for? Give us a call today and we can arrange a consultation to see what your options are.

 

No Smoking Day

This year no smoking day is on Wednesday the 13th of March. As health care professionals we actively encourage all our smoking patients to try to stop. We can help provide advice and help with stopping. We want to help anyone in Lenzie, Kirkintilloch or other parts of Glasgow to stop smoking for good this no smoking day.

This year smokers are being encouraged to focus on what they could afford to buy they were to quit for a day (saving £7), a week (£49), a month (£210) and a year (£2,555).

Why quit?

Everybody has their own reason to stop. One of the biggest incentives for smokers to quit comes from considering the real amount of money they spend on cigarettes and thinking about what themselves and their family could afford if they were to give up for good.

Why not stop as part of a move to a healthier lifestyle? As a dental practice we are very aware of the increased risk of oral cancer that smoking brings. Furthermore, smoking causes staining of the teeth and can make gum disease worse.

We have found it quite popular for smokers to book in for an ‘Airflow’ scaling when they are going to stop. This removes the stains that brushing won’t. This can be an incentive to stop as patients do not want to go back to yellow teeth and keep their teeth sparkling.

Why not book in for a check up and we can discuss ways in which might help you quit.
