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.

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.
