An increasing number of people are choosing dental implants to replace their missing teeth. At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent we can use implants to replace anything from one to all of your natural teeth. Depending on your clinical situation, your implants can be combined with dentures, a bridge, or a single crown.
