Dental Implants are clinically proven to be a safe and long-term solution in replacing natural teeth allowing you to eat chew and bite with confidence. Dental implants dentistry is life-changing and can return strength, structure and function to your mouth.

In Surrey, Dr Karen Gangotra has completed her Master’s Degree in Clinical Implantology (Merit) and is known as a highly skilled and experienced implantologist offering dental implants as a permanent solution for your missing teeth.

Missing Single Tooth
Missing Multiple Teeth


Using the latest technology, we can plan the placement of your implants before any treatment begins.

Our in-house x-ray generates a digital 3D model of your teeth and jawline, using a minimal dose, allowing us to accurately diagnose your unique clinical requirements.

The 3D scan also helps us avoid hidden anatomy such as other tooth roots and main nerves.

As a result many patients are able to have implants placed in a single appointment, with more precision, improved aesthetics and quicker recovery times.


Dental implants are a permanent, clinically proven solution for missing teeth and consist of 3 parts;

A surgical grade titanium screw – which is placed in your jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root

A white porcelain crown – this is the replacement tooth which is the visible part of the restoration

An abutment – the component that connects the titanium screw to the replacement tooth

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone starts to resorb due to lack of stimulation. This can also lead to premature aging.

Placing an implant in this area allows you to chew your food evenly on each side and preventing resorption of bone (i.e. bone loss).

Implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple adjacent teeth, or all teeth within the mouth.

Dental implants are also used as an alternative treatment option for uncomfortable, loose or unsightly dentures.

Dr Karen Gangotra will need to take a low-dose x-ray or CT scan to see the health and volume of your jawbone to evaluate if dental implants are the right choice for you.

Why Have an Implant?

  • A patient has a missing single tooth
  • Ill-fitting dentures or loose dentures
  • Two or more teeth need replacing
  • Patient has limited chewing capabilities
  • Decayed teeth that are beyond repair

The Process

The dental implants process is where a strong post made of titanium is fitted into your jawbone, allowing a replacement porcelain/resin tooth to be added. An implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly screw or cylinder-shaped. In cases where several teeth need to be replaced, a dental implant bridge can be used to treat all missing teeth at once.

Single Implant

Single implants replace a missing tooth in the front or back of the mouth. The full implant restoration will prevent movement of adjacent teeth maintaining your smile.

Implant Bridge

Implant bridges can restore multiple missing teeth at once. A traditional bridge will grind down the two healthy teeth either side of the gap. Dental implant bridges are not supported by natural teeth so avoid cutting down healthy tooth structure.

Teeth in a Day (All-on-4 / All-on-6)

Teeth in a day allow you to have a fixed and secure new smile in a single day. The dental implants are loaded immediately restoring your smile.

Overdenture (Implant-Supported Denture)

Overdentures are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, either top, bottom or the full mouth. More secure than regular dentures, these can either be fixed or removable to suit your requirements.


Implants can last a lifetime when maintained, just like your natural teeth. This means dental implants are more affordable long-term when compared to other, shorter-term options such as bridges or dentures, that may need replacing several times throughout the years.

Smilessence can offer a variety of financing options to suit your specific needs and circumstances. The cost of dental implants varies for each patient depending on their unique situation.

We recommend speaking with our experienced clinical team to discuss your unique case requirements and find out if dental implants are the right treatment option for you.

“If you need to have dental implants, this is the place to come. As for the pain, the perception is worse than the reality. There is no pain and the results are worth it, believe me. The confidence I have from having this work done, is out of this world.”


“I’ve just had an implant and it’s been an amazing experience. I managed to crack a tooth on some food last year and unfortunately we couldn’t save the tooth. There’s been no pain whatsoever and I’m so, so happy with the results. I highly recommend Karen and the team.”


“Great friendly service and a new smile. Everybody says to me “what have you done?” I’m very pleased with everything. It’s superb!”


“I have 1 implant on the lower, followed up with a bridge with 1 implant on the top and I’ve just had the final one put in, which I am extremely pleased with.

A – To be a suitable candidate for dental implants, enough bone structure needs to be present. To check this, an x-ray/low dose CT scan is carried out to determine the volume and health of your bone.

Any person who has lost part or a whole tooth, fractured a tooth or has an existing space in their mouth is a good candidate for a dental implant. The evaluation for eligibility will take place after your first consultation for dental implants.

A – Implants are not necessarily appropriate for everyone. Age is not a limitation, but bone tissue quality and gum condition are important. Other factors that may increase likelihood of dental implants failing are:
  • Excessive smoking as it deters healing,
  • High alcohol consumption that affects the gums,
  • Bisphosphonate medication
  • Advanced gum and bone tissue deterioration from periodontal disease
  • Patients with auto-immune disease that also affects healing-rate and fusion of the implant to the bone.
  • Excessive teeth grinding is also a condition that can stall implant treatment.
Our experienced implant dentist, Dr Karen Gangotra can discuss these conditions with you and examine your mouth to see if you are a suitable candidate for dental implant treatment.

A – When looked after well, dental implants substructure can last for up to 10-15 years. To keep them in good condition, it’s advised that you regularly visit the dentist and hygienist.

What will my mouth feel like after surgery?

Slight discomfort and slight swelling is to be expected in the days following your dental implant surgery. Minor bleeding may also occur. This is easily treated with painkillers and/or antibiotics. It is very likely that you will need to eat soft foods until the site fully heals.

A – Making sure you brush twice daily with the correct brushing technique, use a fluoride containing toothpaste and chlorhexidine mouthwash, and floss at least once a week helps to prevent tartar and plaque build-up. Chewing sugar-free gum after meals also contributes to good oral hygiene. Avoiding any damage to the implant site is crucial, after surgery, so gentle brushing and eating of soft foods initially is recommended. Visiting our dental hygienist for regular check-ups will also help to maintain both your natural and implant teeth.

A – Local anaesthetics are used to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Because of this, the surgery is performed almost painlessly. Many patients are pleasantly surprised when they experience little to no discomfort during the operation. Oral and intravenous sedation is also available if requested.
A – The dental implant is non-visible part and the crown or bridge is the tooth part that you see. Once the dental implant is placed it is very likely that you will have some stitches in. These will be either dissolvable or non-dissolvable. You would be requested to attend Smilessence again after 2 weeks for a review and suture removal if required. One the dental implant heals beneath the gum surface, usually 3 months, a tooth/teeth can be placed on top of the implant(s)making it look very natural. During the healing period, temporary replacement teeth can be provided in the form of an adhesive bridge, or temporary removable appliance. This would need to be discussed with Dr Gangotra at the consultation. Patients may have one, two or a full mouth reconstruction. In some cases, we can provide you with “Teeth in a Day” where a patient comes in with loose teeth and leaves with implants and temporary teeth. For further information, please book in for your free consultation with Dr Gangotra.
Typically, dental implants take about 6 weeks to fuse with the jawbone. However, you’ll be unaware of this happening. After 3 months your new implant will be fully integrated. Here at Smilessence, the integrity of the implant bond with the bone is tested before the implant treatment is full completed with a crown/bridge.

A – The cost of dental implants in Surrey varies from patient to patient as it depends on a number of factors.

Factors include:

  • patients risk factors and specific needs
  • Choice of analgesia -sedation/non sedation
  • Materials used
  • Further treatment for example, the need of bone grafting to build up the bone of the jaw to prepare for implantation, but this won’t be necessary for all patients.

To reduce costs, some patients choose to research alternative options or book their treatments overseas, but this can pose problems in terms of after-care. Dental insurance is also an option to investigate when advised on implants.

At your initial consultation after X-ray or CT Scan, Dr Gangotra will advise you on the treatments required and all the costs involved and payment options available. Smilessence does have interest free (over 12 months) and interest-bearing finance options available to spread the costs of dental implant treatment.
