Anne McKean

I have felt supported, in safe hands and informed throughout the process; from the initial discussions about the implant vs bridge vs denture, through the operation and fitting, to the post procedure check-ups that all is well.

The finished tooth is superb; I am absolutely delighted.

Julie Lazenbury

When I first attended my consultation at Bamford Dental Practice the staff were very professional, approachable & knowledgeable they explained every detail and planned every step of my treatment. Initially my concern was the cost however taking into consideration the time and expertise along with the final result it was money well spent. I would like to thank Mr Mark Edmondson and his staff along with Ms Sandy Limerick and her staff for the fantastic treatment I received I am so grateful to the dental practice for giving me my smile and confidence back which is priceless. I would say to anyone thinking of having implants done go for it !!!

Thanks again for everything.

Sandra, Louise and the other members of staff always acted in a very professional manner with me whilst also remaining smiling and friendly so that I felt I could relax. Also, at all times, cleanliness and infection control were very obviously among Sandra's top priorities.

I now have a new tooth and I feel I can eat and smile and get on with my life and I am very grateful to Sandra.

Throughout my treatment Sandra Limerick has proved herself to be a consummate and truly talented dental professional. She explains everything she intends to do in as much detail as she is asked for, always calm and good humoured. She does not compromise with materials or technique so when she says that she is happy with an outcome you can be confident that all will be well.

Aside from the well equipped surgeries the practice have invested in other equipment which allowed Sandy to generate panoramic x-rays and CBCT scans so that the whole of my treatment plan could be conducted within the practice.

Have some questions

I am afraid of going to the dentist ... What can I do?

Come and see our gentle and relaxed team to talk through your concerns. We also offer sedation to reduce anxiety during treatment.

When should I take my child to the dentist for their first visit?

When their first baby teeth arrive, usually around 6 months of age. However, it is wise to get advice from your Dentist to prevent tooth decay even before the baby teeth erupt.

What causes cavities?

Sugar in food and drink is converted into acid by bacteria which live on the teeth. Reducing the frequency of sugary foods and drinks reduces the number of “acid attacks” and therefore regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste can help to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce decay.

Which is better, a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush?

Current evidence shows that an electric toothbrush can perform better than a manual toothbrush if used correctly. Electric brushes with a rotating ossolating head (for example, Oral B Professional) have been shown to give the best results. Don’t forget your inter-dental cleaning aids, such as TePe brushes and floss!

There are so many toothpastes to choose from; how do I know which one to use?

We recommend toothpaste with a fluoride content of 1,350 – 1,500 parts per million (ppm). In certain circumstances your Dentist may prescribe a toothpaste with a higher fluoride content (patients with extensive decay or patients with a dry mouth, please ask your Dentist for more details).

How often should I go to my dentist for a check-up?

We usually recommend a check-up every 6 months. Patients susceptible to dental decay or gum disease may need to be seen more frequently.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is caused by the body’s immune reaction to the build-up of dental plaque. If left untreated this can lead to the development of pockets between teeth and gums which can harbour bacteria. This can lead to bone loss which causes gum recession and undermines the support for teeth.

How safe are dental X-rays?

Most dental x-rays require a tiny dose of radiation. Did you know, a long-haul flight from London to New York can expose you to 30 more times radiation than a small x-ray inside your mouth.
