Dental implants are the most natural looking and natural feeling replacement for missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants don’t slip or click when you talk or eat. They allow preservation of your gum and bone tissue and prevent any damage to your adjacent teeth. They help keep your jaw healthy so that your facial structure stays pristine.

“ I’ve known Dr. Husain Harianawala and Dr. Farhath Sayyed over many years now, personally and professionally. They are both not only amazing friends, but also great dentists, definitely my go-to people ! I have gotten everything done, right from my teeth cleaning, to root canal, crown, implants, as well as a major surgery (cyst removal and bone grafting) all through them. I live in the US and yet ONLY and ONLY go to them for any dental work. They are reasonably priced, they use the best quality products, are gentle and caring and absolute perfectionists. If you are looking for a dentist you can trust, it is definitely them!!!”
“ A complex job made easy!!! I needed a reconstruction of my earlier performed dental implant, which many others said was a risky affair. Hence I was looking for a specialist in this area & fortunately bumped across Dr. Husain referred by a colleague. I had to wait for a few months before getting a good chance to travel from my home Singapore to Mumbai last week. It was definitely worth a wait, as everything went smooth, fast & perfect. Dr.Husain is truly a Specialist in his field.”

Single stage: Implants are placed and the final crowns are given the very same visit. This may be done if the quality of bone is adequate in quantity and quality.
Two Stage: The implants are placed and a TEMPORARY fixed or removable set of teeth are given to the patient immediately after the implant placement, that very same day, for a healing period of 1- 4 months. Final crowns are given to the patient after the patient has healed completely. This type of treatment allows you to easily maintain your teeth, improving the longevity of the teeth in your mouth and your quality of life.
The teeth above the implants are designed in such a way that they are fixed for the patient, yet retrievable by the dentist for maintenance purposes. These fixed teeth are conventionally screw retained which means they can be unscrewed by the dentist for repair and maintenance whenever required. It is similar to wheels of car which are fixed using nuts and bolts as opposed to a fixed bridge which is like tires welded to the axle. And we all know that something as simple as a flat tyre can make servicing very complicated and expensive.
Advantages: -Less cost than conventional full mouth implants.
-Long lasting solution.
-Implants and artificial teeth don't deteriorate because of dental decay.
-You can enjoy your favorite foods without any restrictions (Roasted Almonds, Peanuts etc.)
- Are dental implants painful?
With painless anesthetic and sedation techniques available at the time of treatment and helpful instructions for home care, many people report that they feel better than anticipated. Often, they return to work and daily activities on the same day or the next day. While there may be some discomfort and bruising, this typically lasts only a short time.
- Can any dentist provide my dental implant?
Dental implants are sophisticated dental devices that must be placed carefully to minimize complications or implant failure. For the best results, it is important that you choose a dental implant expert who has the proper education, training and competence in implant dentistry. Remember one thing- A dental implant done wrong is very hard or almost impossible to correct. If done wrong it works out to be more expensive, involving more extensive procedures than the cost of a good dental implant done right at the first attempt.
- How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of implant treatment depends on many individual factors including:

- Which dental implants are the best?
There are over 450 dental implant manufacturing companies in the world. However, only the top 5 Brands make for 95% of the implant sales in the world. The significance of these numbers is that when you get an implant in your jaw today if that company shuts down 5 or 10 years from today. There is a chance that your implant may need some form of maintenance for which we may need certain components to address an issue in the future. If those parts cannot be made available, it may lead to the implant in your mouth being deemed a liability thus needing bigger surgery to replace that implant or may need to be buried in the bone and not used anymore.
The top few brands are carrying out tremendous amounts of research and development to improve the vast number of features a tiny little dental implant has. This increases predictability and success rates.
