In the last decade dental implants have become widely used in mainstream dentistry and are usually the treatment of choice for a missing tooth.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth root, usually made from titanium. There are many different implant systems available and when competently used they all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment. The main aim during the placement of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. Over time further growth of bone onto the implant surface enhances the stability of the implant.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or a post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Who is suitable for dental implants?
Dental implants are suitable for most adults with good general health. They can only be used once the jawbone has stopped growing and so generally are not used with younger patients.
Habits such as heavy drinking or smoking can increase the number of problems associated with initial healing and thereafter may be bad for the long-term health of gum and bone surrounding each implant. Some dentists will decline to place implants if smoking cannot be reduced or given up altogether.
However, each case is different and if you do have any medical problems then speak to your doctor or dentist prior to starting any treatment – it is only in some circumstances that health problems prevent the use of dental implants altogether.
While our aim is to help you have healthy teeth and gums, we can also provide you with an attractive smile. Our dentists have the expertise to provide you with a beautiful smile.
Our dentists will recommend the following treatments
The enamel is the outer hard covering of your teeth. If you neglect your teeth then you will weaken the enamel and it will lead to tooth decay. If you have a broken tooth our dentist will recommend appropiate options after a thorough examination of your teeth.

Cannot recommend highly enough, everyone polite, friendly and professional and caring. All my dental work has been done painlessly, in a calm, relaxed atmosphere, where every care is taken to reassure and inform me at every step. Everyone is totally awesome.
Brilliant all round. Friendly staff, everything explained fully, very gentle (bonus point) - would highly recommend.
I highly recommend the Claremont Dental Surgery. The staff are friendly and polite. Dr Kalsi was very patient and clearly explained my options. He is an excellent dentist.
My whole family have been with Dr Kalsi since he took over the practice, and in fact my three year old grandson has just gone for his first check-up. He is a superb dentist, always explains exactly what he is going to do, and if there are options explains them carefully and clearly. All his staff are friendly and helpful. I totally recommend this practice.
I have been a patient at Claremont for many years with both Dr Sehra and Dr Kalsi. I have always appreciated the relaxed, friendly and professional atmosphere.
Would highly recommend Dr Kelsi and Sophie. All the team are delightful. Steve and I have been coming to this surgery since before Dr and Mrs Kelsi took over the practice 13years ago.
Claremont is an absolutely brilliant Dental Surgery. Dr Kalsi and the team are fantastic. I have recently had a Dental Implant and from start to finish the team were amazing, such a high standard of work and every part of the process was explained in detail. I'm so pleased with the final result, thank you Dr Kalsi. I highly recommend!
Best practise I have used. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and give personalised treatment every time. Had major work done here and I’m absolutely delighted with the results. Would absolutely recommend 5/5.
After not being to the dentist for five years the staff were happy to accept me as a patient with no judgment. Procedures were explained to me and were clear what was going on and the prices are affordable for the fantastic service given. I would strongly recommend.
I've attended Claremont Dental surgery for over 15 years and in all that time I've always had friendly and professional service. From the moment you walk through the door, you are greeted with a warm welcome from Sarah the receptionist, or Kully the office manager, both of whom are friendly, caring and immediately put you at your ease. Dr Kalsi continues the welcome and always takes time to clearly explain what he is about to do and treatment options. He is very knowledgeable about his profession and keeps abreast of the latest developments. For example I wanted to avoid using mercury fillings if possible and he told me how composite materials had advanced recently, providing a great alternative to mercury amalgams. What I most appreciate, however, are 2 things: when I've been in pain or I've broken a tooth etc, they've always been there for me - be it fitting me in quickly for an emergency appointment or providing antibiotics when I had painful abscesses. The other thing is Dr Kalsi's thoughtfulness. I've got a low pain threshold and was an initially wary customer due to multiple painful fillings without any pain relief as a child. Dr Kalsi works so sensitively and thoughtfully. I had bouts of tooth sensitivity (even with using sensodyne etc) and he changed the suction tube he uses for removing liquid in the mouth to one with a smaller bore so it was less cold on my teeth; he also put an antisensitive layer of enamel like material over the most sensitive painful areas on other occasions. Plus he moves around between different teeth when descaling so the discomfort doesn't build up on any one tooth. Also when I had deep fillings and needed a few injections he put a numbing gel on first to reduce the pain of the injections. So he's a excellent dentist, especially for someone who is as sensitive to pain and discomfort as me. He, Kully and Sarah are a great team.
