Newsletter - September 2012

Welcome to our e-newsletter.  There have been lots of developments at Beeston Dental Practice recently and what better way to keep you up to date.   This month you can read about the new dental implants service now available at BDP, as well as what’s happening with our Kids Club and some new additions to our website.  There’s also news of a special discount on offer on our facial aesthetics service at The Studio and some fantastic upcoming offers for brides and their bridal parties.


Thank you for your support

Firstly, we would like to thank all our patients for the trust and loyalty you place in us.  Please continue to visit us regularly so that we can keep a close eye on your teeth and gums and keep you smiling with confidence.   By attending for regular check ups, you give us the opportunity to spot any potential problems as early as possible, saving you unnecessary time and expense.  You may be aware that whilst checking your teeth, we also look for signs of mouth cancer; early detection could save your life.

We would also like to express our gratitude to those of you who have recommended family and friends to us.  We will continue to offer a warm and friendly welcome to those you feel would benefit from our services.


Regain your Confidence with Dental Implants:


Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your life and can affect your confidence, your ability to chew, laugh or speak. Depending on the location of the missing tooth, smiling can become an embarrassing thing to do. 

More and more people are recognising the benefits of dental implants.  The implant is a small titanium screw that is placed directly into a patient’s jaw bone. This implant will act as a replacement for a natural tooth root.  A dental crown, which resembles the look of a natural tooth, is then attached to the dental implant – making the entire dental implant system a highly-efficient replacement for missing teeth.  They also offer a strong, stable, secure and permanent solution to uncomfortable dentures, making concerns about chewing, laughing and speaking a thing of the past. 

The treatment process is relatively simple and once the surgery is complete they require no further adjustment or special aftercare.

 We have now added dental implants to the list of treatments and services available to you at BDP - our implant dentist, Dr Joanna McKendrick, has advanced her skills in this area and can offer you lots of advice and guidance on whether dental implants are suitable for you.  For more information you can visit our website or contact the practice to arrange an initial consultation. 


Fun with Flossy at The Kids Club

Those of you whom have children will be only too aware of how difficult it can be to persuade your little ones to take care of their teeth.  Learning to brush properly and adopting a healthy oral hygiene routine is best learned at a young age; that way it becomes a habit that is hard to break.  You can help your children to enjoy caring for their teeth by bringing them along to one of our fun and friendly Kids Club sessions.  Regular sessions are held at the Practice and we also visit local nurseries – if you think your child’s nursery would enjoy a visit from ‘Flossy the Rabbit’ and our Kids Club team, do let us know. 

Congratulations to Kacey Clarke!  Kacey is the lucky winner of our Flossy colouring competition.  Well done!


Facial Aesthetics at The Studio

Botox – not just for the stars!

As the pressure to look good is never more than a magazine page, advert or a television show away, botox injections are thankfully no longer only an option for today’s celebrities.  You too can counter the visible effects of ageing by reducing crow's feet and frown lines with revolutionary anti-wrinkle injections, giving you a fresher, more youthful appearance.  Our prices usually start from £170 but for the month of September, The Studio at Beeston Dental Practice is offering newsletter subscriber’s a fantastic 20% reduction on these prices.  For more information on the treatment visit our website or make an appointment for an initial consultation with Dr. Patel, our dentist and fully qualified botulinum toxin medical practitioner.
