Javier Bobes BascaranDentists

GDC - 254944 BDS, MSc, PhD (Oviedo, Spain, 2007) Associate Dentist

Javier is highly qualified, holding a master’s in prosthodontics and a PhD in implant-related biomechanics.

After qualifying in Spain in 2007, Javier worked in private practice before moving to Aberdeen in 2015.

He also holds a diploma in implantology, an MSc in prosthodontics, and a PhD in the field of biomechanics in implant-supported prostheses. He is trained in orthodontics, craneo-facial disorders, sleep apnoea, cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, kinesiology, and posturology.

Javier manages a wide range of dental cases. One day he might be using a simple splint to reduce headache, jaw problems and excessive wear for a patient who grinds or clenches their teeth. Another day, he may be using implants, crowns or bridges to help improve a patient’s ability to chew (and therefore to enjoy a varied diet).

He also enjoys carrying out smile makeovers with the latest technologies and treatments, including veneers, teeth whitening and teeth straightening.

Javier has presented at several meetings of the Spanish Society of Stomatological and Esthetic Prostheses (SEPES), the Spanish Society of Craniomandibular Disorders and Orofacial Pain (SEDCYDO), and a well-recognised dental college in Asturias.

No, orthodontics for adults is becoming more and more common. We can talk through your options with you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

Fillings repair small holes in your tooth enamel. If they aren’t filled, the decay will deepen. You’ll start to feel pain, and you could end up needing root canal treatment, which is much more significant and costs more. So although you might not feel pain right now, it’s best to repair these holes as soon as possible.
