Free consultations for Dental Implants (subject to terms and conditions)

A fall at work resulted in the loss of several of my teeth, and I suffered tissue damage and bone loss. I was subsequently referred to Ravinder Varaich at Wansbeck Dental Spa and Implant Clinic. I was hoping that she could do something for me so I could avoid dentures.
From my first visit, I felt relaxed and confident that I was in expert hands. Dr Ravinder Varaich and her team were so welcoming, kind and caring. My treatment was explained to me in detail all along. Ravinder Varaich was always happy to answer questions and discuss any worries I had.
The outcome is that I now have no dentures, I have fixed teeth. and I have my smile back! I would recommend dental implants with Dr Ravinder Varaich to anyone. I could not have been treated any better! Thank you so much!

The loss of a tooth or numerous teeth can severely impact your self confidence, and your ability to chew your favourite foods. Missing teeth cause a reduction in the amount of bone in the area, which can cause sagging of the cheeks and around the mouth making you look years older! Gaps in your mouth can also make you feel conscious to smile widely, and to cover your mouth when laughing.

The loss of even a single tooth can have serious consequences on the rest of your mouth, causing overloading of the remaining teeth to compensate for the loss of function of the missing tooth, which can lead to broken teeth elsewhere in the mouth, tilting of the adjacent teeth into the space, and not being able to chew food as well as with your natural teeth.

Here at Wansbeck Dental Spa and Implant Clinic, we understand the importance of being able to chew your favourite foods, and being able to smile widely without being conscious of gaps in your mouth.

Treatment animation

  1. spaces for the implants are made in the jaw.
  2. implants are then fixed into the prepared holes.
  3. once the implants have healed and bonded to the jaw bone, abutments are fitted.
  4. bridgework is prepared and fitted to the abutments.
  5. completed, the new teeth look like normal healthy teeth.

What are implants?

Wansbeck House Dental SpaImplants are a fixed solution to missing teeth, or can help to anchor dentures more securely in the mouth. Other options for missing teeth are bridges or dentures. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several missing teeth, or to replace a full set of teeth.

An implant is a titanium rod which is placed in your jawbone to replace the lost root portion of your natural tooth. A false tooth/teeth, such as a crown, bridge or denture is then securely fixed over the implant(s). This creates a stable and secure permanent base for the artificial teeth.

The aim during implant placement is for the implant to fuse with your own natural bone, and this is generally very successful. The implant, in most cases, stays in place for a lifetime, so is one of the most successful treatments carried out in the mouth.

What is involved?

Over 20 years ago I had a really bad experience with a dentist and never went back.  I consequently had two teeth extracted. I joined Wansbeck, and Dr Varaich and her team saved the rest of my teeth.  The gaps resulting from the extractions started to affect my other teeth – and Ravinder suggested implants.  I didn’t relish the idea but if I trusted anyone it was Ravinder and her team.  Everything was very clearly explained.  It was much quicker than I imagined, and  I felt nothing whatsoever.  I can’t really add much about it as apart from being talked through what was happening there is nothing to say – I felt absolutely nothing.  Ravinder gave me her phone number in case I had any queries when I got home (above and beyond the call of duty I thought) and phoned the next day to see how I was.  I was expecting a lot of pain once the numbness wore off but it was absolutely fine.  If I can do it anyone can – and I would recommend this practice to anyone who fears dentists – everyone is so friendly it’s more like seeing old friends than a visit to the dreaded dentist.

Initially, we would arrange to see you, and assess your teeth, the spaces in your mouth, and the general health of the rest of your mouth. It is important that your mouth is healthy first, so that the implants are more likely to be successful, and that we are planning for the implants and your teeth to be stable for many years to come!

Radiographs (X-rays) would also be taken to look at the amount of available bone, and assess whether we need to use artificial substitutes to provide more of a stable base for your implants.

A small window is created in your gum, the area of bone prepared, and the implant is securely placed. Any artificial bone substitutes, if needed are also packed in the area, and the gum is replaced with a few stitches. The implant is then left for three to six months to fuse with the bone. Beautiful temporary false teeth can be constructed whilst this healing phase is taking place, so that you can still smile and chew confidently. In some cases, where there is enough good quality bone, we can even place temporary crowns over the implants on the day of implant placement.

Once the healing has taken place, we may need to place temporary crowns over the implants so that the gum contours well around the temporary restorations prior to placement of the permanent false tooth/teeth.

What if I don’t have enough bone for implants?

Wansbeck House Dental SpaHere at Wansbeck Dental Spa and Implant Clinic, we have some fantastic solutions to support your implants and add to your natural bone. Artificial bone substitutes can be used simply by packing around the area at the time of implant placement, so there is no need for multiple procedures!



How long do implants last?

When well looked after with good home care, and regular visits with the hygiene department, the implants themselves can last a lifetime. As with any other restorations in your mouth, the implant supported teeth can still be damaged by trauma, gum disease, and general wear and tear in your mouth, but these teeth can be replaced without disturbing the underlying implants.

What are the advantages of implants?

  • Better support to chew your favourite foods! The implants replace the roots of your missing teeth, so the implants can function just like your natural teeth!
  • They look beautiful! When done well, implants can be indistinguishable from natural teeth!
  • They do not affect your adjacent natural teeth! The implant treatments mean that your natural teeth do not need to be drilled or prepared to support your missing teeth, so it is a much healthier solution to restore the gaps
  • Easier to clean! Cleaning implants can be just as easy as cleaning your own natural teeth.
  • Implants can make you look younger! Implants preserve the bone in the area of the missing teeth, and prevent sagging of your cheeks and around your mouth. When a tooth is lost, the bone levels naturally drop over time, and your cheeks can appear sunken in, and make you look older than you are. Deep folds and wrinkles can also form . Placement of implants actually encourages bone growth, and thereby reduces the loss of volume to your face!

Implants are a fantastic solution to replace your gaps securely and permanently, allowing you to smile widely showing off your beautiful teeth, and chew your favourite foods with confidence! Call today to discuss replacing your gaps beautifully!
