Dental Implants are a permanent solution to replacing gaps where previous tooth/teeth were. A ‘post’ is made from titanium and implanted into your jawbone, thus it becomes something similar to a ‘root’. This post then has a crown attached to it which is in the shape and colour of your natural teeth
They can be used to provide single crowns, fixed bridges or implant retained dentures.
They are advantageous in terms of not damaging adjacent teeth, which happens with conventional bridges. They are not susceptible to decay; however patients must still maintain meticulous oral hygiene.
We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest government guidelines.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine exams, treatments and hygiene appointments.
Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.
We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and booking emergency appointments. Dental emergencies include:
Severe pain for over 48 hours
Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding
We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We will be able to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of the team will be in touch.

Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
