Dental Implants


If you are embarrassed by missing teeth or loose dentures, then advanced dentistry treatments like dental implants can change your life. Dental implants are the best-known solution to tooth loss because they are hardwearing and extremely long-lasting, they look, feel and behave just like natural teeth and allow you to eat, laugh and smile with confidence again.

We can use dental implants to replace a single tooth, replace multiple missing teeth and to secure dentures. The procedure is straightforward, with little downtime for our patients, and we can offer a range of individual finance options for dental implant treatments. In fact, the technology is now so advanced that we can offer suitable patients teeth replacement in just one day.

At The Essex Smile Centre we offer the very best in advanced dental implant surgery using the Straumann dental implant system. Our implant clinic is led by Dr Deepam Patel who has performed thousands of placements, from single missing tooth to full mouth reconstructions.

If you are upset or simply fed up with gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth then book an appointment with Deepam and discover more about this life changing treatment and how dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. He is really approachable and knowledgeable, there is nothing he doesn’t know or hasn’t seen before.

“I just wanted to send a quick email to thank all of the staff for assisting me with booking an appointment for my daughter who suffered a dental trauma and broken tooth. The care from the time I telephoned at 8.30 am and spoke to Sue to my further calls with Karen who managed to secure an appointment for me yesterday was absolutely wonderful – so compassionate and understanding, I cannot tell you how much that meant to me when both myself and my daughter were in a state of shock and my current dentist could not help.

I cannot put into words my gratitude to Nicola and Danielle who treated my daughter – the entire appointment was calm, clear and designed to put Alice at ease. I am astounded at the results achieved and this has meant my daughter could do her show today and finish her dance college summer school.

You should all be really proud about the work you do – it may have just been a normal appointment but it made a huge impact on us. Well done, thanks again and have a wonderful summer.” – Maggie
