Healthy mouth, healthy body

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

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

A large proportion of the people who contacted Cherrybank Dental Spa 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. Cherrybank Dental Spa 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 Edinburgh.

I came to Cherrybank Dental Spa Edinburgh for some treatment,and I have to say it was an amazing experience from start to finish. I am quite anxious at the dentist but the team were so welcoming and friendly. Erin,who was my nurse, put me at ease immediately and really made me feel relaxed. Dr Katy the dentist explained everything to me in language I could understand. I would highly recommend anyone who is anxious to visit as it really was a great experience, didn't even feel like I was at the dentist!read more

I had extensive work done by Umair totally pain free and I am absolutely delighted with the end result just wish I had plucked up the courage years ago . Massive thank you to Umair and all the team at Cherrybank for putting a smile on my face .read more

I would definitely recommend Cherrybank dental. Having had bad experiences at other dentists I am not the easiest person with anxiety and nerves but everything from the start has been amazing.

So happy I have now finally found a dentist that I am comfortable enough to go to. Thank you so much guys honestly a life changing experience with you.read more

I have just completed a second round of teeth straightening (teen braces, did not wear my retainer), this time with the lovely Cherrybank team. Using a lingual brace, it only took 5 months for my bottom teeth to move into position. The team were amazing, professional and efficient during each visit. Every step was explained clearly and I felt no pain/discomfort whatsoever. Would definitely recommend and I look forward to returning for further treatments. Special thanks to Rhona, Grianne, Alex and Umair :)read more

Had an amazing experience recently at Cherrybank Dental Spa Edinburgh. They really are a different class!

1,205 days ago I walked into Cherrybank Dental Spa, nervous and anxious. I couldn’t bare anyone seeing my teeth, I mumbled and covered my mouth when speaking to people up close. The team at Cherrybank have transformed my life. After a process of getting my mouth healthy, I started my Invisalign journey. Today I walked out feeling emotional - I’m going to miss these ladies. The service you receive is impeccable, the team are always smiling and encourage you every step of the way - no matter what your journey. I want to take this opportunity to thank Kirsty! You have been amazing, you’ve pushed me further than I ever thought I could go - I will forever be grateful!! I would recommend Cherrybank Dental Spa 💯Me and my smile will be back 😁read more

I visited Cherrybank for Invisalign treatment and couldn't have been happier with the experience I had over 18 months or so. Every single member of staff is absolutely lovely, professional, reassuring and happy to go that extra mile at the drop of a hat. Cherrybank's environment, skills and patient care are outstanding. I'm so much happier with my smile and would highly recommend to others. Huge thanks to everyone (especially Chris and Tammy for putting up with my many demands!)read more
