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.

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.
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've been looked after by Dr Kalsi and the team for about 10 years and am completely delighted with all the work that he has done for me. Technically excellent, aesthetically brilliant. I highly recommend the practice to anyone who wants to put their dental work into safe, experienced and professional hands. A very friendly and efficient practice!
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.
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.
Been coming to this dentist for years now and have never had a bad experience
Claremont Dental Surgery is a fantastic dentist focused on making sure you have the best teeth you can. Reception is so friendly and courteous it puts you at ease immediately. The dental technicians are great and very helpful. Dr Kalsi is a dental wizard and I would trust him to do any dental work I needed.
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.
