Dental Implants Leicester & Loughborough
A dental implant is a small titanium screw placed in the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. The implant can hold a crown, a bridge or a denture securely in place.
Dental implants can:
- Replace one or many missing teeth
- Secure loose dentures
- Provide a complete arch of new fixed teeth
What Problems Do Dental Implants Fix?
Dental implants are the perfect solution to many different types of oral health problems. They are a permanent replacement for missing, loose or failing teeth and can put an end to functional problems like difficulties with eating. Dental implants also represent a dramatic cosmetic improvement over dentures and rotten teeth.
Below are some of the most common problems our patients face before visiting Dental Suite.
- Social embarrassment which leads to avoiding events and hiding their mouth with a hand.
- Lack of confidence and self-esteem, which leads to depression.
- Avoiding eye contact because they feel others are always looking at your teeth.
- An inability to eat solid foods which often means cutting meals into small pieces or eating a soft food diet. Many of our patients dream of biting into a steak or an apple!
- Loose dentures which move around or slip out when it’s least convenient. This most often happens when eating or laughing, causing wearers to avoid dining out in public or with friends.
- Rotten, failing and loose teeth can cause severe pain and causes some patients to avoid the dentist through fear of further pain or embarrassment.
If you experience any of these problems, we can help. Take the first step now and complete the form on this site or give our friendly team a call to book a consultation.

Kind words from our happy dental implant patients
I had a check up here and a filling done. I felt absolutely nothing. Not even the injection. The girl at the desk and nurse and dentist were really professional and really nice. I highly recommend this place.
I actually had a really nice time here. I had a really nice chat with both the receptionist and the dentist i saw. Both were really friendly and easy to talk to. it didnt feel like a visit to the dentist at all. I had to have a filling done which was annoying but usually they take ages and they hurt a bit and its a bit of a nightmare. God they did it in like 15 minutes, I was in and out. Fantastic service! … READ MORE

What Are the Different Types of Dental Implants?
At the Dental Suite, a team of highly trained implant dentists, clinical dental technicians, and consultant anaesthetists work together to provide the very best implant dentistry available today.
Single Tooth Implants
We replace one or two missing teeth with a lifelike crown attached to a permanent dental implant.
We secure loose dentures using dental implants and a secure clip. Realistic implant-retained dentures don’t move and are capable of chewing tough foods like steak.
Dental implants form a base to secure a row of replacement teeth (a bridge). A bridge can be as few as three teeth to an entire arch of upper or lower teeth.
Patients with loose dentures or failing teeth can have them replaced with a complete arch of fixed new teeth in a single-day procedure.
We Transformed Julie’s Life
Julie visited us at The Dental Suite because she felt her teeth were negatively impacting her life. Her oral health was deteriorating, and her teeth were becoming increasingly loose, making everyday living difficult.
Julie found herself covering her mouth when she talked. She no longer enjoyed smiling or laughing with friends and family, and she couldn’t eat foods that most of us take for granted.
Following an initial consultation with Dr Bohara, Julie decided to have her teeth replaced with implanted bridges in her upper and lower jaws.
Julie’s life has been transformed – she now has a set of teeth she can truly be proud of.
The Detail is in the Planning with Dental Implants
State-of-the-art digital planning technology lets our clinicians scan the jaw to achieve precision placement of dental implants. The technique is just one of the many planning steps we take to ensure treatment goes smoothly and archives long-term results.
We involve the patient in every stage of the planning, so they know the exact details of what is involved. We believe you can never be too thorough when planning and carrying out implant dentistry and our meticulous approach is just one of the things that sets us apart from our competition.
In this video Dr Adam Patel, talks through the planning process for dental implants. He shows us how the Dental Suite’s state-of-the-art digital imaging and planning technology lets him build a 3D model of the patient’s jaw. It helps both patient and dentist to picture the end result before treatment begins.
Same-Day Teeth Success Stories
Meet Shaun, whose dentures made him feel much older than his years. He was fed up of glueing in his loose dentures and would often avoid social events. But Same-Day Teeth turned Shaun’s smile around, putting him proudly front and centre of family photos once again.
Ellie hated her discoloured, unnatural dental caps. And they looked even worse when they eventually failed. Ellie’s confidence was restored in one day with same-day implants. Ellie’s husband said she’d got the sparkle back in her eyes!
What Can Go Wrong With Dental Implants?
As one of the leading implant clinics in the UK, we occasionally see patients who have had implant dentistry elsewhere that was poorly planned or carried out by inexperienced surgeons using cheap materials. We never compromise on the quality of materials or standards, and our team is one of the UK’s most experienced.
These are just a few of the reasons why Dental Suite is the clinic of choice for dentists referring patients for implants in Leicester, Loughborough and beyond. And our expertise is why dental professionals from across the UK refer patients who need complex and advanced procedures.
Anxious About Dental Implant Treatment? Sedation Could Be The Answer
The pleasant state of sedation is a fantastic way to relax during treatment. The medication puts you into a pleasant dream-like state. When patients come round afterwards, most are surprised to learn they have already undergone surgery!
We are lucky to have an experienced sedation team, including two hospital consultant anaesthetists, to provide patients with a deeper level of sedation.
We offer intravenous (IV) sedation by injection in the back of the hand or arm, and have painlessly treated thousands of patients using this method. All experienced no pain and were happy and relaxed throughout.
We can tell you more about sedation dentistry at your consultation appointment.
Meet Consultant Anaesthetist, Dr Nick Crombie
“No anxiety, no stress, no worry.” Watch the video to hear our consultant anaesthetist Dr Nick Crombie explain why sedation dentistry is especially effective for nervous and anxious patients.
Implanted Dentures – The Moment Val’s Life Changed
Loose teeth and poor oral health was making everyday life increasingly difficult for Val. She longer enjoyed many of life’s simple pleasures.
Val decided to have implants to support upper and lower dentures and put an end to slipping dentures for good. Our dentists show how Val’s dentures fit securely, allowing her to enjoy a full diet with plenty of smiles!
Tempted by Cheaper Dental Implants Abroad?
Most of us wouldn’t shop around for cheaper heart surgery. But we’ve met many patients who consider taking the same risk with their teeth, by looking abroad in search of budget treatment.
Lured by a luxury hotel and the promise of implants at a fraction of the cost in the UK, many thousands of Brits have become dental tourists.
We are seeing the results – an increasing number of patients who need extensive repairs to implants carried out overseas. They usually fail because of inferior materials, or because the implants aren’t given sufficient time to heal.
At the Dental Suite, there is no rush. We use the highest quality materials available, and our expert team led by implant dentist Dr Kalpesh Bohara, enjoys thousands of combined hours of experience and training.
You’ll also be pleased to know that we offer a choice of two implant systems with payment and finance plans available.
Joanne’s Nightmare is Over
Joanne travelled to Turkey to save money on veneers. The clinic she chose had a fantastic reputation and the price was right, too. But Joanne ended up paying with her health when the dental work failed after only a few days – leaving her in excruciating pain. Joanne’s message for dental tourists? “Please, please don’t do it!”
Joanne’s smile is now on the mend, thanks to intervention from the Dental Suite team.
How Much Will My Dental Implants Cost?
Implants start from as little as £2000, and we offer a choice of systems to suit every budget. You can also choose from standard or deluxe implants, and we’ll let you know about the benefits of each at your consultation.
The total cost of treatment varies from patient to patient. It depends on factors like how many teeth need replacing, how many implants are required and whether any prior procedures are necessary.
We’ll provide a full cost report and discuss your options after carrying out a diagnostic examination.
Saving up for treatment was one of the best decisions Hazel ever made. In this video, she reveals how a payment plan helped her dreams become a reality.
She also lets viewers know how Dental Suite compares to other clinics on service and quality.
No wonder Hazel is telling all of her friends about us!
Invest in You
We appreciate that implant dentistry can feel like a substantial investment – we have treated many thousands of patients who begin their journey with concerns about cost: Will it be worth it? Why is it so expensive? Is there a cheaper way?
Some patients skip their annual holiday or put off big decisions, like buying a new car, until next year. And everyone tells us the life-changing impact of being able to confidently eat and smile again was worth every penny.
Compromising on quality and experience could leave you in the same boat as many patients who visit Dental Suite after receiving inferior implants elsewhere. We are the team they trust to put things right.

Wayne Wanted a Hollywood Smile
Wayne wouldn’t accept anything less than a Hollywood smile. When he said he wanted his teeth to be as white as possible, our team helped Wayne choose the perfect shade. He hasn’t stopped smiling since!
Life After Implants
Wayne says his life has changed completely since getting implants. “Everyone has noticed a difference,” he says. “It’s like I’m a different person!”
Don’t Have Enough Bone for Implants?
Don’t worry. Every year, we see hundreds of patients who have been told they don’t have enough jawbone for implants. Our dental surgeons are experts at bone graft surgery which safely replenishes jawbone. It works by grafting a material containing collagen and other growth-promoting agents to the implant site. Bone grafting lets patients with deteriorated jaws and receded gums enjoy dental implants and a brand new smile.
The Science of Smiles
In this video, Dr Bohara explains how we treat patients with receding gums and depleted bone. The process is helped along by the clinic’s state-of-the-art CT scanner, which gives the team an accurate picture of the jaws’ size, density and overall health. Bone grafting has helped hundreds of patients recover their confidence – even when they have been told they are unsuitable for treatment.
You’re Never Too Old, Says Malcolm
Our patient Malcolm lost his front two teeth when aged just six. He struggled with a partial denture throughout his life and finally decided to do something about it at age 84!
Malcolm had two dental implants placed by Dr Patel, carefully designed to match his existing teeth.
He was over-the-moon with the results. Malcolm’s story shows it’s never too late to start smiling again.
Is Dental Implant Treatment Painful?
The procedure causes very little discomfort. Thanks to the anaesthesia administered by our team, most patients tell us they are surprised at how little they feel, and how comfortable they were throughout. If you feel nervous, you can also consider having IV sedation to put you in a relaxed state. We can also arrange for you to get a little reassurance about the process from patients who have already received treatment.
You Feel Nothing!
We caught up with Ann, who explained how it felt to have dental implant surgery. She had several stitches and spent a total of five hours in the dental chair. Sounds uncomfortable? Anne says she didn’t feel a thing!
Can Everyone Have Dental Implants?
Most patients over the age of 18 can have implants. Some patients worry that they are too old for implants, but overall health is more of a deciding factor than age. Thanks to our bone grafting procedure, you may be able to have implants even if other dentists say you don’t have enough jawbone. Our team will fully assess your suitability at your initial consultation.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Treatment time can vary. In simple cases, it takes only a few months for the implant to integrate with your jawbone. More complex cases can take longer.
Will I Ever be Without my Teeth?
Some patients have a temporary denture to wear until the treatment is completed, while others do not require a denture at all.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental bridges supported by implants have been shown to last longer than 15 years in 90% of cases. We have every indication that they will last for much longer, and most patients can expect them to last a lifetime. The first patient received his dental implants more than 30 years ago and are still going strong today!
Do I Need to Look After My Dental Implants?
Yes! Taking good care of the implants will assure the long-term success of your treatment. The great news is that you can treat your implants just like natural teeth by brushing and flossing around the restoration as usual. Our team will show you how to properly care for your implants, and you should visit the hygienist every six months to stay looking fantastic.
How Long Have Dental Implants Been Around?
Dental implants are not a new procedure. Prof. Brånemark started his research in the early ’50s and has revolutionized implants as we know them today. Prof. Brånemark placed his first osseointegrated implant in a patient in 1965, after many years of preclinical studies.
