Question and answers
- All on Four/ Six
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 Dental Bond, one of the best dental clinics in mumbai Dental Implants are virtually a painless procedure, many people report that they feel way 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 an Implant dentist 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. We pride ourselves that The Dental Bond, one of the best dental hospitals in mumbai has an inhouse implant dentist to take care of your dental needs with specialized care and advanced technology.
- How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of implant treatment depends on many individual factors including:
- The number of teeth that need to be replaced and the type of artificial teeth that will be used by implants.
- The type of implant(s) that will be appropriate:
- The need for any Bone Grafting procedures
- Which dental implants are the best?
There are over 550 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. At The Dental Bond, one of the best dental clinics in mumbai they use the best implant brands and implant types to give you the best results.
- Do dental implants cause cancer?
No! Dental Implants do not cause cancer.
- How long do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental decay; however, the health of the gums is vital to maintaining lasting implant success. There are 2 aspects to the longevity of your dental implants.
- The clinician has to place the Dental implants right and the teeth over the implants have to be designed right
- Conscientious home care by the patient and regular professional cleanings and check-ups are essential elements for dental implant sustainability
We have followed up patients having uneventful dental implants for up to 30 years.
- Can dental implant failure occur?
Dental implants have an extremely high success rate and if properly placed by an expert implantologist, it definitely increases the odds that guarantee success.
There are two types of implant failure.
Immediate implant failure- Failure of the dental implant 4-90 days after implant placement. This could be because of a number of reasons but the most common and the most preventable are infection and bone loss. It’s also possible that the implant may fail to osseo-integrate with your jawbone. At our Clinic, we have a 99.8% success with dental implants
Delayed implant failure. This is also known as Peri implantitis- a kind of infection that forms around the implant and the gums. This is usually due to poor dental hygiene maintenance after an implant placement
- Can dental implants be done in one day?
Treatment time varies from patient to patient depending on quality and quantity of available bone to place the implant. Dental implants can be placed within one day. Typically, you will have some type of temporary teeth until your implants integrate with the bone. However, It is important to consult your implantologist and plan your trip accordingly.
- Are dental implants NOT advised in some patients?
Dental implants are contraindicated in:
- Patients receiving i.v. bisphosphonate therapy
- Patients afflicted by blood disorders
- Immunocompromised or immunosuppressed patients.
- What are mini dental implants?
Mini dental implants are small sized dental implants. They are not an alternative to traditional dental implants unlike popular belief. They are typically used in situations where a smaller implant is needed to fit into a narrow location.
- Can implants be done without bone grafting?
Implants can be treated successfully without the need for bone grafts if the situation is favorable to begin with. If an implant is placed in a compromised bone the long term success of the implant gets severely compromised. This can come across as poor/ compromised aesthetics, food getting stuck in the implant areas, unnatural looking gums and teeth emergence. To conclude - an implant being done cheap without the discussion of a graft, is an implant without a graft which may come cheap at this point but works out very expensive and becomes a complicated affair in the long run for the patient.
- Are dental Implants Serviceable?
Dental Implants have some fixed parts that stay within the bone. At The Dental Bond these parts never go bad because of the use of super premium products and techniques. However it is the tooth part of the implant where all the wear and tear happens. The way dental implants are executed at the dental bond the tooth part of the implant is always attached with a screw which can be accessed by the dentist within 60-90 seconds without causing any damage to the tooth. This work ethic allows for servicing if ever there may be a need for any in the future.
- Do we need Bone Grafting with dental implants ?
Bone Grafting around implants is like setting the foundation right before constructing a house. The human jaw bone in 95-98% of the global population starts to shrink from the day the tooth is removed. Hence it is safe to say that almost all patients need at least a small bone graft for them to achieve an ideal long term good result. A good 20% have severe shrinkage needing large bone grafts.
At The Dental Bond, we do all sorts of grafting procedures including Direct and Indirect sinus lifts.
- Correction of Failed Implants
Many people have experienced bad implant treatment in the past leading to bad experiences. These bad experiences can sound very scary when described. We stand by our notion that Dental implants if done right can last you a lifetime. We see a lot of patients having failed or failing implants which we have been correcting or managing very successfully for 4 years now

While your body silently and peacefully goes through the healing process these temporary teeth allow you to carry on with your normal lifestyle until the final teeth can be fixed in your mouth. This lets you have teeth at all points of time during your entire treatment process.
“ 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.”
