The Number One Teeth Replacement Choice

It’s hard to imagine the impact losing teeth can have until they’re actually gone. The gap left behind doesn’t just make it difficult to smile confidently; it makes every decision about what to eat so much more difficult.

In addition to struggling to smile and worrying about what you can and can’t eat, you may face other problems. For some, even talking becomes a challenge.

Then there are the health concerns. Gaps become a haven for plaque, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Without a complete row of teeth, the remaining neighbours could shift, causing misalignments and gaps. And below the surface, your jaw changes, too. Over time, the area that once supported the tooth can deteriorate, affecting your facial structure and piling on the years.

While other replacement tooth options are available, dental implants are the gold standard for restoring your smile to its former glory. At The CDC, we use the latest surgical technology and evidence-based techniques to place life-changing dental implants.


The Science Supporting Your New Smile

Dental implants are titanium posts used to replace the root of your tooth. These small pillars support lifelike custom-made crowns that blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Once in place, the implant fuses to your jaw, creating outstanding support for your replacement teeth.

Titanium is the metal of choice for the job because it’s light, robust, and biocompatible.

Once the bone and implant merge, a firm foundation is created. This gives your bite the strength to enjoy whatever food you like.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

There are lots of great reasons to choose dental implants when replacing teeth.


Smile With Confidence

Losing one or more teeth can harm your self-esteem. You may become more self-conscious about smiling, laughing, and even talking. Dental implants support natural-looking replacement teeth that look so good and feel so secure that you’ll be completely at ease whenever you smile, laugh, or talk.

Chew With Ease

Biting and chewing aren’t easy when you have a gap in your teeth. While dentures can improve the function of your bite, they don’t have the same foundation that implants can offer. Once you’ve got implants, enjoying your favourite food is much easier—and nothing is off the menu!

Improved Oral Health Outlook

Dental drift, jawbone resorption, tooth decay, and gum disease are all common problems people face after they’ve lost teeth. Dental implants stimulate the jaw and prevent deterioration. Your new teeth will fill the gaps, stopping drift and reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Easy Care Routine

There’s no added care needed to help maintain a healthy smile once you have implants. As before, brush thoroughly twice daily, floss, use mouthwash, and visit us for a checkup every six months.

A Lifetime of Smiles

If you care for your oral health, your titanium implants won’t degrade. This means that once your dental implants are in place, there’s no need to change them.

Are Dental Implants
Right for You?

Dental implants are a life-enhancing treatment option, but they might not suit everyone. To go through the procedure, you’ll need to be in reasonably good general health and have sufficient jaw bone dentistry to support the implant.

If you have lost density in your jaw due to resorption, you may need a grafting procedure first to rebuild your bone.


The Dental Implant
Placement Journey

Dental implant surgery is performed in several stages. As we place the implant into your jaw, the bone will need time to strengthen and heal between steps.



Every dental implant placement begins with a thorough assessment of your teeth and jaws. We’ll ask you some questions about your general health and take scans of your mouth to ensure you have sufficient bone mass to accommodate the implant.

During this initial consultation, we’ll talk you through what you can expect from the process and allow you to ask questions.



We want you to feel comfortable throughout your dental implant surgery, so we’ll give you an anaesthetic before we begin.

We’ll start by placing the implant itself. Because we need to wait for the bone to accept and bind with the implant, we won’t place the final prosthetic yet. Instead, we’ll give you a temporary replacement that looks and feels great.

After the bone has healed and the lab has created your new custom tooth, we will ask you to return to have the final restoration placed.

We’re Five-Star Rated!

Mat Sims was my dentist at the clinic and I couldn’t have asked for a better result with my new smile. Mat and Tiff are both lovely and always made me feel at ease when in the chair and I am so so happy with the way my teeth look. 100% recommend to anyone who would like to invest in their smile, the best decision I’ve ever made.

Alison McDonald

I was made to feel at ease throughout each appointment and after such a long time feeling self conscious I am delighted with the results.

Great Service and amazing staff! Nigel and his team were super helpful and friendly and explained all the options available and how it would all work.

I have recently finished my Invisalign and composite bonding with Mat and his assistant Tiff and I am over the moon with my results. They were both lovely from start to finish, helping me through the process. All of the staff there were friendly and approachable, including Jaqueline on reception who made me feel so welcome and comfortable whilst waiting for my appointments. Would highly recommend!

Jane Bryant

I have just finished my Invisalign treatment and composite bonding with Mat and his assistant Tiff and I couldn’t be happier with my results and the service I received. They made me feel so at ease from the start, I could ask them anything and they knew exactly the result I wanted. I’m one very happy customer, so glad I chose them!
