On average, British people have 6.97 missing teeth — and older people tend to have poorer dental health than younger generations.
At Knighton Dental, we know that having missing or broken teeth can adversely affect a patient’s confidence — as well as make eating certain foods seem like a chore.
But some people think dentures are their only option — so they choose to go without any treatment at all.

Implants can dramatically improve your smile and require a professional practitioner like our own Dr Savan Zala to fit them properly.
