Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

The Government recently announced that dentists could reopen from 8th June. For the majority of practices, including ours, this was unreasonably short notice. We reopened to patients from 1 July but are only able to do the most simple treatments at present.

At first, we need to prioritise appointments for people who have been having problems over the last few months as our first priority, and those with outstanding treatment from before lockdown. If you have a scheduled check-up in the near future, it is likely that we will cancel this to free up time for more urgent cases and we hope that you will contact us again in a few months time to reschedule that appointment. You can find more information in this article.

If you have an urgent problem, please call 01784 253140 to speak to our reception staff so that we can offer advice or an appointment as necessary.

Dental Implants

Our practice is pleased to be able to offer dental implants to replace teeth which have been lost through accident, decay or gum disease.

A dental implant is a small post made of either pure titanium or titanium-zirconium alloy. It is surgically placed into the jawbone under local anaesthetic where a tooth is wanted. Once fitted into the jaw bone, the bone bonds to the implant surface within a couple of months. It can then be used as an artificial root to build the visible part of a tooth.

We use Straumann™ implants because they have excellent reserch and we believe they provide the best solutions for our patients. Further information is available on their website
