I love Dr. Kimberly Welden. She is a wonderful dentist and a wonderful person. She shows you that she not only cares about your dental health, but she also cares about you as a person and your mental and physical well being. I think she is the best that Decatur, Alabama has to offer.

What I like about Dr. Bedsole is that is super easy to make an appointment. Sometimes they have been able to take me right away. I never have to wait long in the office and my appointments are always a pleasant experience.

Dr. Bedsole is one of a kind. He made me feel very relaxed and he was very personable. I like having a dentist who can put my mind at ease. He answered all of the questions I had for him.

When I needed immediate work done on my teeth they were able to set up a payment plan that worked for myself and my growing family. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
