Individuals should visit their dentist regularly for a wide array of reasons, one of which is dental hygiene. Having poor dental hygiene within the mouth can trigger the development of a wide number of oral diseases and infections (such as gum disease for example). Having your regular dental check-up is important, to avoid the development of further dental concerns, such as requiring a filling, or a ‘scale and polish’ if brushing of the teeth is not performed to a high enough standard. Maintaining the hygiene and overall condition of the mouth is just as important as maintaining the health of your gums.
What can I expect from a regular dental check-up at your dentist in Glasgow?
Individuals may expect a few simple general dentistry procedures during their regular dental appointment, your dentist or dental nurse will give your teeth, as well as your gums, an overall inspection, as well as inspecting any specific areas that the patient may feel needs a closer look. Although it is not necessarily undergone during every dental check-up, you may receive a scale and polish, in order to remove any plaque build-up on the surface of the teeth.
What sort of treatments do you offer at your dentist in Glasgow?
At our dental clinic we offer a wide array of dental treatments, including restorative dentistry (such as dental implants), as well as both multiple forms of both modern and traditional cosmetic dentistry (such as teeth whitening).

What are orthodontics, and are there multiple forms of orthodontic treatments on offer at your dental clinic in Glasgow?
Orthodontics are dental treatments used to straighten the teeth, or reduce the ‘overbite’ or alignment of the teeth. The most commonly thought of form of orthodontics are traditional metal braces, however there are actually several forms of orthodontics which are available at our dental clinic. One of the examples of the form of orthodontics we offer our patients are Invisalign braces.
What is Invisalign, and why may I choose to have this treatment at your dental clinic in Glasgow?
Invisalign is a brand provider of clear aligners. Clear aligners are transparent mouth trays that are replaced every few weeks in order to encourage the teeth to move in a positive direction. At our dental clinic we have a member of our team who is an ‘Invisalign Go’ provider. Raashi Tiwari is an accredited Invisalign provider at our dental clinic, as well as working with fixed traditional metal braces.
What if I feel nervous about visiting my local dental clinic?
If you are an individual who feels nervous about visiting a dental clinic, this may be due to an irrational fear (also commonly referred to as a phobia). Phobias are extremely common within the field of dentistry (and many other medical fields) which is why we attempt to manage the fears of our patients when they are experiencing this anxiety. Phobias can be triggered by negative childhood experiences, however we have specialists at Tiwari Watson Dental Care who are great at easing nervous patents.
