Advances in modern dentistry have led to excellent options for replacement of missing teeth. However, our philosophy is to help patients keep as many of their natural teeth as possible, for as long as they can do so. In some cases, though, extractions are necessary. Patients in the London area receive this service from the dental team they already know and trust.
