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. St Andrews Dental Care 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 St Andrews Dental Care we find that even with the most nervous of patients, all they need is time and kindness. Therefore, our principal dentist  Seb, 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 Glasgow 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:

“Absolute first class experience. I recently joined the practice after not attending a dentist in about 4 years. I suffer really really bad anxiety with the dentist, however, read some good reviews about the practice and decided to take the first step in getting my new smile. I have been blown away and feel excited to start my journey to a new smile. Kelly the consultant was wonderful and made me feel at ease and supported from the start. I met my dentist Sebastian for the first time today, and he instantly put me at ease. He was calm, gentle, and supportive. He made sure that I felt comfortable in every way, and he took his time with me and explained everything bit by bit. Going to the dentist is extremely invasive and I feel that its important that you feel comfortable with your dentist, and I can now say that I feel so much more comfortable about visiting the dentist thanks to the support of Kelly and Sebastian, and also Zoe, without the support of these guys, I could not have made this first step and I will be forever grateful to them. They truly deliver a first class service. Well done guys.” Cheryl 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.

The practice called me this morning to tell me one of my appointments would not take place due to staff illness. My second appointment did go ahead. As always, reception was calmly relaxing and staff excellent. Treatment went well, Sebastian excellent as always and it was all pain free. Thank you.

I can't praise Chris and the team there enough! Not only is he great at his job - after giving me a smile overhaul - but the way that he kept me informed all the time, and planned the various treatments was great. It meant I always knew what was being done when and everything was actually done much more quickly than expected! A huge thanks to Chris and the team!

I was fully informed of what treatment I was going to receive and what David would be doing to ensure my treatment was both effective and pain free. Both David and Marie were excellent making me feel very comfortable and they did exactly what they said they would do, complete my treatment fully pain free.

After a google search to find a dentist after moving to Fife, I decided to give St Andrews Dental Care a call and I'm over the moon that I did!As a nervous patient, Dr Chris and his team, helped reassure me throughout my appointments. The end results are outstanding! The veneers are everything I hoped for, and more! I no longer smile with a closed mouth, and I am extremely proud of my new smile!

I recently visited a friend in Edinburgh. I talked about wanting my teeth whitened. He recommended to contact St Andrew’s Dental Care and see one of their Dentists Chris. I made an appointment and seen Chris the next day. Although I have a fear of dentists Chris immediately put me at ease. Following receiving one of most detailed check ups I ever had, Chris clearly explained my options for teeth whitening and appeared extremely knowledgeable about this field. I opted for the rubber teeth mouth guards. This involved a totally painless process where Chris used their specialist teeth scanning device. I explained I was returning to Northern Ireland in 7 days. Chris pulled out all the stops to get the lab to produce the plastic moulds from the scan of my teeth and then made the plastic whitening trays. I was able to collect them before I left. The items including the whitening liquid were presented in very professional packaging and I got clear instructions on how to use the whitening liquid before I left. I found Chris to provide a superb professional and customer personable service. I have used the mouth plastic trays and I am delighted with the the result. If you are looking for teeth whitening service I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Chris at St Andrew’s Dental Care. I do plan to get my teeth straightened using the Invisalign Treatment and know Chris is an expert in this field and will be going to no other dentist to carry out this further treatment.

I recently visited the practice to have lip fillers. I was apprehensive about the end result as I wanted my lips a little fuller but still very natural in appearance. Chris was fantastic, spent lots of time answering all my questions and providing plenty of reassurance.I am over the moon with the end result and best of all it was definitely pain free!I can’t recommend Chris highly enough for this treatment.

I just wanted to say a few words in recognition of Sebastian Mylchreest at the St Andrews Dental Care & Implant Clinic. I had to have a root canal and a new crown fitted during the C-19 restrictions as my own dentist was prohibited to carry out the work due to lockdown restrictions.Sebastian carried out a first rate job, he was extremely professional and very friendly, in addition to explaining the dental work as he proceeded with the treatment. The experience was as pain-free as you are likely to get when visiting a dentist. I found Sebastian to be genuine and extremely genial and would recommend him with no reservations. Thank you so much for a great job, I am very happy with my treatment and the result. 👍

I visited St Andrews Dental care for the first time and had a fantastic experience. I had a scale and polish treatment with airflow. Eilidh, the hygienist spent time explaining how to keep my gums healthy and clean. The treatment itself was completely pain free and it was over before I knew it! Megan also did a great job assisting Eilidh with the whole process. They were both so friendly and made me feel at ease. I would definitely go back to visit this practice again to get more treatments! Amazing service, thanks again☺️

I had a hygienist appointment for a deep clean and pureflow stain removal treatment before my wedding. The process was so efficient and not uncomfortable at all. Was done in half the time from my usual dentist. Elidh and mahira kept me notified of each step and were very friendly. Highly recommend 👌

After many years of feeling self-conscious about my teeth, I decided to take the plunge and go for Invisalign and composite bonding. From start to finish, the treatment I received from Sebastian and the team has been brilliant. Every step was carefully explained and I went from someone who dreaded the dentist, to looking forward to my appointments and seeing the progress and next steps. I now have perfectly white and straight teeth in time for my wedding next week and have no worries about smiling for the photos! I highly recommend St Andrews Dental Care to anyone looking for dental treatment.

Treated myself to Invisalign to straighten my front top and bottom teeth which had bothered me over the years, the treatment has proved to be a thoroughly worthwhile and quick experience with amazing results from wearing the clear invisible aligners, and with the option of a very affordable monthly payment plan.Sebastian took me through the treatment process with consistent professional care and advice. The process was extremely straight forward showing results as soon as 3/4 weeks from the start, I would highly recommend Sebastian and his team at St Andrews Care.

Some gentle persuasion from Chris and I finally agreed to have my Iffy wisdom tooth out having guarded it for about 50Years!After 40 minutes in Sebastian's consulting room with much reassurance, lots of local anaesthetic, a bit of tooth shuggling I left without my wisdom tooth (and one other) having felt not a twinge of pain or discomfort. Thankyou for your kindness and professionalism - BRILLIANT!I first went to see Chris to ask his advice on what (if anything) could be done to reduce the ugly distortion of my front teeth or at least prevent them getting any worse. When he suggested using INVISALIGN I have to admit I was quite sceptical that anything so apparently gentle and unobtrusive could deal with the challenge! Six months on the results have been absolutely wonderful - I can grin and chat without the urge to hide my ugly teeth. A huge thankyou to Chris and the INVISALIGN team for the advice, encouragement and support - I could not be more delighted with the outcome.

I have been a patient with this practice since 1999. Stuart and his dentists and nurses and staff are amazing. I have had implants done and was totally pain free. They really look after you. Best dentist in the world. No need to be scared....they all wear masks !!...........I look forward to the next 20 years with them.

Had three of my wisdom tooth removed with Sebastian and it was a very secure and comfortable experience. Each extraction was quick and smooth, and the recovery period was short and easy. I'm glad to have had the removals done by St Andrews Dental Care!

It is difficult to write about Sebastian and the team without sounding cliched. But the simple truth is they are superb! I had two front teeth replaced by an implant. It was a fascinating experience as Sebastian performed some of the most impressive precision engineering I have ever seen. From the latest 3D imaging of your needs to the final product I simply found myself sitting in the chair thinking about this incredible process. If you are nervous about going to the dentist, do not hesitate to use this clinic. As someone put it, I have been given back a set of camera-ready gnashers. A most sincere thank you to Sebastian and the team.

Amazing results and first-class treatment received - I whole-heartedly recommend Sebastian Mylchreest and the whole team. I thought I was too old for my teeth to be sorted out (late 40s) but Sebastian has given me my smile back again! Using comfortable braces, top and bottom, within a relatively short period of time, my teeth have been realigned - my teeth now look like they were always meant to! This treatment has also stopped me from further damaging and chipping my teeth, and has given me a more comfortable bite. I can't thank Sebastian and the team enough, very considerate, highly skilled and professional. I think Sebastian has worked miracles with my teeth - I'm no longer hiding my smile! I never thought I'd ever hear myself say I'm looking forward to my dental appointments - but that's how good the team are! Thank-you all so much!

Both myself and my daughter attended this clinic recently and we honestly can’t praise everyone enough. I received a dental implant, composite bonding and whitening treatment and my daughter had wisdom teeth removed. She was a nervous patient before setting foot in the building but now has zero fear. The process for the dental implant was no where near as stressful as I had imagined and was very surprised by how easy Sebastian and the team had made it seem. From the first consultation through to looking in the mirror to see my new smile I always felt so relaxed and never in pain. All the staff are super friendly and caring and would highly recommend to anyone considering any form of treatment.

I received implant treatment requiring a bone graft at St Andrews Dental Care recently. Not everyone has the talent for making an unpleasant experience into a pleasant one, but these guys managed it with unrivalled skill, professionalism and care. My new tooth is perfect, thank you.

Seb was very professional and made me feel at ease - nothing was too big an ask. Practice is very clean and Covid safe. All appointments were exactly on time and I didn't feel as if the appointment was rushed. No hesitation in recommending Seb to anyone.

Amazing experience start to end! The team are extremely friendly and I couldn't be happier with my results. A big thank you to Seb, Louise and the team of dental nurses I have had - each of them were amazing and well worth the trips up from London, I wouldn't go anywhere else!! I had been coming to this practice since I was little and couldn't recommend it enough.

I have been a patient at this practice since it opened, sometime last century! Throughout the years I have always been 100% satisfied with all my care and treatment from all the staff. The place is spotlessly clean, the equipment thoroughly modern and efficient, and I just know I am SAFE in the hands of the dental surgeons and dental nurses. This week I got two new front teeth (crowns) and I am ready for Christmas (and a whole lot more). I am in a prepayment plan so that even my bills are relatively pain-free.
Barbara MacFarlane

So happy with the work that Seb has carried out. After many years of living with 2 front teeth with small chips which had been very visibly repaired, he has done an amazing cosmetic and invisible repair. All my friends think that I have 2 new front teeth, fabulous! He also measured and fitted me with a new mouth guard to prevent damage from teeth grinding and for the first time in many years I wake up in the morning refreshed and rested after a good nights sleep, and without any pain in my jaw or neck. I would highly recommend St Andrews Dental Care to anyone looking for any form of dental treatment.

What a kind, caring and professional practice. I cannot express how relieved and happy I am to have found St Andrews Dental Care. I am genuinely terrified of all things dentist-related but I was put completely at my ease by the calm atmosphere of the clinic and the caring, thoughtful attitudes of the practice members. Both Kasia and Sebastian were wonderful and really took the time to listen to me, understand and reassure me that everything was going to be OK! Sebastian put me completely at ease in the treatment room, taking time to explain everything that he had discovered. My treatment was very gentle and thoughtful and I was actually able to relax. I left feeling elated that I had been to the dentist and actually left smiling for the first time ever! If you are worried or afraid of the dentist, this practice is your place. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

As someone who has a huge fear of dentists in general, and pretty much everything that goes with it… I was dreading my first appointment. However Chris and his amazing team soon eased me into feeling relaxed. Almost immediately I felt at ease, and shortly afterwards I actually found myself laughing and genuinely not scared at all. The magic that Chris and his team worked in my mouth has left me feeling like a new person. And honestly, the care and patience that Chris showed me is beyond words. I couldn’t recommend highly enough. You will be in the most capable and dedicated hands with Chris and his team. Thank you all so very much x

I recently had two wisdom teeth removed and one partially removed by Sebastian and I cannot recommend him enough. I think most people hear a lot of horror stories about wisdom teeth but having the procedure done in the practice rather than in a hospital felt a lot less intimidating. Sebastian is not only a very skilled dentist but he genuinely cares about patient care and experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone for dental treatment! I also had sedation for the procedure from Chris. Again, he was very reassuring and the sedation definitely stops you from remembering anything about the treatment! Thank you!

I will never be a brave dental patient. I'm so tense when I cross the threshold that it's a wonder my hair isn't standing on end. Sebastian and Zoe are kind, patient, and encouraging, and they go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and at ease.It's clear that Sebastian takes a real pride in his work - my fillings look and feel great. This has been my best ever dental experience.

One of the best & friendliest practices around - both Stuart & his team are true professionals which has seen me keep returning for nearly 10 years now.
