Missing Teeth? IT'S A WHOLE LOT EASIER THAN YOU THINK... Why should you replace a missing tooth? Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean a greater strain on the teeth at either side. A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed in-between adjacent teeth and the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease. This problem is easily solved and much more cost-effective than you might think. Can you guess which tooth below is a dental implant?

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT... "To my dentally-challenged fellow sufferer's I arrived at Philip McCauley's clinic 6 months ago, a toothless crone destined for a diet of boiled cod and pureed parsnips. My lack of molars however were pure joy to the inestimable Mr McCauley, indeed his raison d'etre, and he set about with gusto restoring my ability to masticate meat. With regard to the dentist's chair, I must confess to a modicum of hysteria, so it was with relief that, at each visit, the team treated me with kindness - maintaining my dignity whilst gently wrestling away my emergency vodka and unprising my fingers from Mr McCauley's legs. Never did I hear a snigger or see a smirk - not when my terrified rictus revealed a slither of spinach adhering to my cavities or during my Temazepam-induced rendition of Molly Malone. My whole-hearted thanks to Philip McCauley and his team - I now sport a full set and it was worth every penny of my children's inheritance." Mrs A. H.
