Our experienced implant dentists ensure that our dental implants in Richmond achieve the optimum results and satisfaction for patients. Their expertise plus the quality of our materials and technology enhance the quality of our results whether its single tooth restorations, securing loose dentures or even complex full mouth rehabilitations.
Even a single missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious and/or affect how you chew. With a single tooth implant, we'll place a titanium implant into the jaw, right where the gap is. It takes no longer than any other routine dental procedure. Later attaching a tooth-coloured crown will complete your smile.
If you're missing three or more teeth in a row, an implant-retained bridge is the answer. During one appointment, two or more implants are placed into the jaw where the gap is. At your next appointment a bridge containing the tooth-coloured crowns is attached and that unsightly gap is gone for good.
If you've lost all of your teeth in your upper or lower jaw, dentures in Richmond aren't the only solution. Long-term denture use won't stop your jawbone deteriorating and your face taking on a prematurely aged appearance. Dental implants however will protect the health of your jaw. By using anywhere between just two to six implants, we can restore a full jaw of teeth, leaving you able to smile, eat, and talk with confidence.
If you've already been putting up with loose dentures in Richmond for some time, you may need some preparatory work to make your jawbone strong enough to take the implants, such as bone grafts or sinus lifts. Afterwards, you'll be able to have the implants precisely placed into your jaw and after a period of healing, an over denture or bridge will be attached. It's your choice whether your over denture or bridge is permanently attached or temporarily attached, the latter giving you the option to take them out for cleaning.
Dental implants are always placed under local anaesthetic, which ensures you are kept as comfortable as possible. However we understand that even when the pain is managed, patients may still be dealing with anxiety. That's why we do our very best to put you at ease, from explaining exactly what to expect at every stage of treatment to providing options for sedation. These include intravenous or inhalation sedation, both of which will ensure you are more relaxed and calm, while still aware of your surroundings.
This varies considerably depending on each individual case, with some patients needing preparatory work first. In general, once the implants are placed, time for healing is needed, after which replacement crowns can be fitted. The final stage of treatment – fitting of the crowns – usually occurs three to nine months after the implants are placed.

Beyond the exceptional professional care I received at Sheen Dental, my thanks extends to the entire staff.
With gentle manners and engaging personality, Dr Kalsi eagerly answered whatever questions I raised about my problem, and explained procedures for each with great patience and clarity. Further, they have given generously of their time and talents. The rest of the delightful team, including those who manage the office, the hygienist and the dental assistants consistently demonstrate great concern for my needs and my comfort.
It is a traditional and cheerful place that I am happy to visit, which, several years ago, I would never had said about a dental practice. The enthusiasm of the close friend who referred me is now exceeded by my own!
