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.
The restorative services we provide are listed below:
Invisalign – the world’s most advanced clear aligner system.
Made to move you forward.
Millions of people are seeing the possibilities that Invisalign innovations open up.
Moves like no other
Only Invisalign clear aligners use SmartTrack material to shape your smile with such precision, comfort and predictability.
Made for your mouth
Each set of aligners is custom-made using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, moving your teeth gently and efficiently.
The complete experience
ClinCheck technology digitally maps your entire Invisalign journey, so Invisalign patients can see what their new smile is predicated to look like before treatment even begins.
Life can continue as normal, as the Invisalign System discreetly does its work.
You can comfortably wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day.
And because the aligners are removable it’s easy to maintain your regular oral hygiene and enjoy your usual diet. As you progress, replacing your aligners every 1-2 weeks, people may notice a gradual change in your smile.
Since research indicates that your overall health is dependent on your dental hygiene, we offer a complete and thorough examination of your mouth each time you come in. Our oral health educator will also take the time to review your brushing and flossing techniques and recommend ways to improve your oral hygiene. If we see problems during our exam, or if you have questions, your dentist will discuss available treatment options with you. We offer the following preventive care services:
– Hygiene Visits
– Oral Health Educator
– Regular Checkups
I would highly recommend Dr Kalsi. He was able to repair a badly broken tooth which I had previously been told was impossible to 'save'. Dr Kalsi explained in great detail every step of the process to me. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and am glad to have found this wonderful practice.
I would like to thank Dr Kalsi and his team for the work he has recently completed for me. I broke one of my front teeth which had to be removed, together with the root and I now have a crown and a bridge on my front teeth. Dr Kalsi put me at ease as I am quite a nervous patient. The colour match is perfect and the completed work looks good and is very comfortable.
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.
I've been coming to see Dr Kalsi for a number of years, and he is the best dentist I have ever come across. He is very professional, diligent with timing and very reliable. The whole team are excellent, very highly recommended.
Always an amazing service here, would reccomend to anyone. It's nice to know you're in safe hands at the dentists!
Brilliant all round. Friendly staff, everything explained fully, very gentle (bonus point) - would highly recommend.
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!
Would highly recommend Claremont Dental Surgery. On both times i have visited the staff have been extremely professional and polite. Dental practice is also very clean and tidy and very welcoming when you visit. Visited last week for an appointment with Dr Kalsi and felt very comfortable in his hands. Keep up the fantastic work!
I thoroughly recommend Claremont Dental Surgery. The reception staff are lovely, and the surgery is also impeccably clean. I travel one hour for my appointment with Dr Rayatt, and I'm pleased with my Invisalign process. I was very nervous during the procedures, but the team instantly put me at ease, and no question is ever too much. Thank you, Dr Rayatt and the team!
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.
