Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I wear complete dentures but would like something more fixed. What can I do?

    Implants are the best solution for people who have no teeth. We will be able to advise on the best type of implant treatment for you.

  2. What should I do in an emergency?

    If you ring the practice before 10am on weekdays we can usually arrange an emergency appointment the same day.

    At weekends, call the practice number for advice. We are part of a Shropshire wide emergency rota which means that you can always get emergency care.

  3. How much will an emergency call out cost?

    Private patients will pay £120.00 for an out of hours call out. Patients on Denplan schemes will pay a maximum of £20.00

  4. My gums are red and bleed when I brush them. What does this mean?

    Bleeding gums are one of the earliest signs of gum disease (gingivitis). The gums bleed because of a layer of plaque and bacteria which is left next to the gum. Our hygienists can advise you how to brush and care for your gums more carefully, so that you can solve the problem for yourself.

  5. My crowns have a dark line near the gum. What does this mean?

    Generally crowns in the past were made with a metal insert and tooth coloured porcelain on the outside. This often leads to a dull appearance and a grey area where the crown meets the tooth. We can now place metal-free crowns on front teeth. These are more translucent and natural looking, producing an attractive smile.

  6. My front teeth have spaces between them. What can I do?

    There are a number of ways to close gaps between front teeth, from the simple recontouring with white filling material, veneers, or by moving the tooth positions with orthodontic treatment. Your dentist can discuss the best way to achieve the result you would like.

  7. How often should I have my teeth checked?

    Most people attend for a routine check up about twice a year. We encourage people to come regularly as it allows us to identify problems before they become too serious. This allows us to sort out problems quickly and often means we can avoid more complicated and expensive treatment.

  8. How much is treatment likely to cost?

    At Madeley Dental Practice we continually keep up to date with training and equipment to provide quality dental treatment. This may mean our fees are higher than other practices you may visit. You will always be given a full estimate of treatment costs before treatment begins.

  9. Do you have any payment plans?

    We are a Denplan practice and can offer you either Denplan Essentials or Denplan Care. Both schemes help you to budget for your dental care.

    Denplan Essentials - pay a monthly sum (£17.09) to cover you for two examinations and two hygienist visits per year and emergency worldwide insurance cover. In addition all other treatment is discounted by 20%.

    Denplan Care - pay between £19.60 and £54.93 per month (depending on your dental health). This will cover you for most routine treatment, including fillings, if you need them and emergency insurance cover.

  10. What is a veneer?

    A veneer is a thin porcelain cover custom made to fit over the surface of your teeth, to improve their colour and shape.

  11. Why do I need to see a hygienist?

    Healthy gums are essential to ensure you keep your teeth for the rest of your life. Hygienists are specially trained to advise you about how to keep your gums healthy. They also work with the dentist if you already have gum problems that need treating. Getting you to control the amount of plaque left on your teeth is essential to secure gum health. The hygienist will assess your cleaning and advise how you can improve your gum health.
