Our Services

We offer dental implants and a range of complementary services designed to help you achieve the perfect smile


Dental Implants

Small titanium screws placed into the bone to provide the most stable and long-lasting platform for the replacement of the missing teeth. You can bite and chew hard foods like apples with an implant just like natural teeth and they help preserve bone and gum.



Also known as root canal therapy, endodontics involves saving teeth by removing an infection from inside a tooth. Any root canal issues must be corrected before implants are placed, in order to keep your existing teeth healthy and to stop an infection spreading to dental implants.


Nervous Patients

We aim to make procedures as easy as possible for you. If you are nervous or do not want to be aware of what is happening during treatment then sedation might be an option. You will not remember anything about the treatment, and it will seem to pass very quickly.


Gum Disease

Gum disease is a bacterial infection of the gums which has spread to the bone and supporting structures around a tooth. Treatment of any gum disease must take place before implants can be placed, and subsequent long-term care and support is needed.



Orthodontic treatment involves moving the teeth with braces in order to make them straight and to correct the bite. A course of orthodontic treatment may be recommended in addition to your dental implants in order to help you achieve the perfect smile.



Radiography helps us to diagnose problems with teeth and bone. In dental implantology, radiography allows us to accurately assess the amount of bone present. We have very up to date radiography equipment at the Clinic including Digital 2D and 3D radiography (CBCT scans).

Finished dental implants at our Bath practice retaining a fixed bridge

Several failing untreatable upper teeth using conventional dental methods and materials. Following the removal of these teeth, allowing adequate healing periods, a number of implants were placed to retain a fixed bridge.

For over 30 years I haven’t been able to bite into an apple. I also never really realised how having wobbly teeth made me feel so insecure and I really did lack confidence. My new implants have definitely made me feel more confident and relaxed and they will last forever.

I had a denture for a couple of years and, to be honest, I didn’t really enjoy smiling because everyone could see the gold clips. Since I have had the dental implants, I have felt more confident and my friends have said that I smile more.

I got really upset with the thought of what was involved and on a number of occasions I burst into tears prior to my treatment, but everyone at The Dental Implant Clinic was really supportive and calming. They were also incredibly patient and really understood how I was feeling.

For the fist time in nine years I have been able to eat an apple without chopping it into pieces…and go to a restaurant and order what I want! Cosmetically, I look in the mirror and it looks great!

I was surprised how easy and painless the whole process and it was very comforting to be treated by an expert who, along side all of the nurses, helped me through every step of the treatment. Since I have had the dental implants, I have felt more confident and my friends have said that I smile more.
