What our patients say

  • NHS Choices 5 out of 5

    "I had treatment yesterday to fill in a gap between my front teeth. I wasn't sure how it would look and was a little apprehensive about the result however, I needn't have worried. when the dentist gave me the mirror I was amazed at the result, it looked so natural and you would never know it was a filling that closed the gap or that I'd even had a gap. I was bowled over by the look of my teeth and couldn't stop looking at them all day I was so impressed. I am still astounded by the fabulous job my dentist did and can't thank them enough - it's given me a real confidence boost too! Can't wait to get my new crown fitted now!"

  • NHS Choices 5 out of 5

    "I have been a patent at this dentist for many years and the staff have always been extremely helpful and considerate. I recently had an accident and broke my teeth - I was very shook up and upset but even though it was almost closing time the dentist agreed to see me as an emergency. I am middle aged and have always been frightened of the dentist since a small child but consider my teeth very important and have always kept appointments and treatments. The dentist who saw me on this particular occasion was amazing and after 2 lengthy appointments my teeth are as good as new. He treat me with consideration and nothing was too much bother. I would not hesitate to recomend this practice to anyone - the admin staff are lovely and friendly/surroundings pleasant and the dentists/hygienist are amazing. Thank you for looking after me all these years!!!!"

The smile gallery

  • Do you find it difficult to eat your favourite foods, enjoy a juicy steak or bite an apple?
  • Are you embarrassed to smile, or do you suffer from confidence issues because of missing, broken or loose teeth?
  • Are your dentures loose and do you worry about them falling out?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, dental implants could be right for you. Here at Avante Dental Centre our experienced dental implant surgeons can help you regain confidence in your smile with a permanent solution for any number of missing teeth.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a fixed solution for missing teeth that are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth. They involve one or more titanium screws being inserted into your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Dental crowns are securely attached to these to fill the gaps in your mouth. Because dental implants are securely anchored in your jaw you’ll have the confidence to comfortably eat whatever you like.

The main benefits of dental implants:

  • Replace loose-fitting dentures
  • Maintain bone structure after tooth loss
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Boost your confidence
  • Function and feel just like natural teeth
  • Improve chewing and speaking
  • Long term solution
  • High success rate

Dental implants are a well-established treatment for replacing missing teeth. As they are inserted directly into your jawbone they help prevent bone loss or movement of your remaining teeth, helping to maintain the structure of your face.

If you are interested in finding out more about dental implants, you can book a consultation for a no obligation conversation about your options and to see if implants are the right choice for you.

Call us on 01642 676793 to find out more

  • Consultation Your initial consultation will be with either our Implant Surgeon or Treatment Coordinator (TCO), who can discuss the different types of implants, single or multiple depending on your need. Following this there may be a need for a more clinical focused consultation.

  • Diagnostic Scans We will carry out a number of digital scans, to build a digital 3D model of your mouth so we can get a clear picture of the area we will place the implant, and a more detailed X-ray using a Cone Beam Computer Tomography scanner so that our Implant surgeon can assess the state of the bone below the gum to get a really clear picture of your treatment need.

  • Treatment Plan Once our experienced implant surgeon has assessed all of you scans they will explain the nature of your treatment, the stages involved and costs. We offer flexible payment options to make implants even more affordable.

  • Commence Treatment Once you are happy we will begin treatment. The length and numbers of appointments will vary depending on the complexity of your particular need, but your Implant Surgeon will have detailed all of this in your treatment plan.

  • Implant Placed Once the implant(s) are placed it may be necessary it might be necessary to allow time for healing before attaching the replacement teeth. Once we are happy the implant has healed we will arrange a series of appointments to fabricate the replacement teeth.

  • Aftercare Your Implant Surgeon will advise you about looking after your implant and may well give you some painkillers to help with the pain over the days after your surgery as well as detailed advice about cleaning the implants and the teeth attached to them.

At mydentist we have the UK’s largest network of clinicians who will listen to your individual smile goals and deliver high quality, safe, convenient and affordable care.

Whatever your needs you can relax in the knowledge that we can help.

All of our practices are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the UK’s healthcare governing body, and are subject to the strictest clinical protocols.
