At Bewdley Dental Practice we offer a full range of dental treatment. The aim of the practice is to provide high quality professional care in a friendly, relaxed environment. Prevention is key, with regular check-ups allowing us to diagnose and provide early intervention before problems occur.
Our aim is to encourage preventative care by helping you to understand how to maintain the health of your mouth. Hygiene visits consist of professional cleaning of the teeth to help prevent gum disease, alongside providing education on how to maintain good oral hygiene at home.
There are two main types of gum disease, Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease.
Gingivitis- Means inflammation of the gums. This is when the gums become very red and swollen and often bleed when brushed.
Periodontal disease- If gingivitis is untreated it can develop into periodontal disease. Periodontal disease affects the tissues and bone supporting the teeth. If the bone is affected teeth can become mobile and consequently result in the loss of teeth.
Regular hygiene and dental appointments are most important in preventing this.

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining tooth after preparation; this restores its strength and the shape of the natural tooth.
A Bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth rather than a partial denture. The benefit of a fixed bridge is that unlike a denture it isn’t removable, it doesn’t interfere with taste and there isn’t usually an adjustment period.
A denture is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Not only does it improve appearance but helps function. You can have a partial denture to replace a few teeth or a full denture which replaces all the teeth in the jaw . Dentures are commonly made of acrylic but can be made of other materials such as cobalt chrome or vinyl.
A veneer is porcelain facing on the front of your teeth, usually upper front teeth; it is often considered to be like a false finger nail. Veneers are mainly used for aesthetic reasons. The main advantage to veneers is there is minimum tooth adjustment making it a less invasive dental treatment.Read More
WHITE (COMPOSITE) FILLINGS
Amalgam fillings have been the most common for many years. As they have a grey/black appearance they can be considered unsightly. Tooth coloured fillings are now becoming more appealing as the look is so natural. Materials which are now used for restoring teeth with a tooth coloured filling have come a long way and are very strong these days.
The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection.
Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to your dentist.
