Dental implants are a permanent and effective solution for missing or extracted teeth. Unlike bridges and other forms of dental replacement, implants require no alteration to the existing tooth structure. Additionally, implants help maintain the look of your smile while preventing future tooth and bone loss.
If you’re suffering from missing teeth, contact Dr. Pawar to learn how implant dentistry can safeguard your dental health and appearance for years to come.

Dental Implant Procedures
When you visit us for dental implants, we will perform an exam and take X-rays of your teeth. After referring you to an appropriate expert specialist in the field for inserting a titanium, screw-like object into the gum, Dr Pawar will place a prosthetic tooth over the implant. After a few months, the implant and bone will fuse together.
Fixed, Implant Supported
With this treatment, the overdenture and bar are a one-piece framework secured using screws to implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture is only removable by a Dental Clinician and is the most like natural teeth due to not having flanges and not resting on the gums.
Implant-Retained, Gum Supported
With this treatment, the overdenture rests directly on your gums and is retained by implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture, which is removable, is secured to your implants through retentive attachments incorporated into the denture. Implant-retained tissue supported dentures are currently recognized as the minimum standard of care for fully edentulous patients.
Benefits of Overdentures
Promotes Better Digestion:
Poor fitting dentures are often held in by using adhesives. Overdentures utilize dental implants, so they are more stable than adhesives. Improved stability allows you to chew food more thoroughly, helping your stomach break down food more efficiently, and absorb more nutrients.
Slows Bone Loss by Stimulating the Bone in your Jaw:
Whether your overdenture is retained by remaining natural teeth or by dental implants, it will continue to stimulate your jaw bone when you eat/chew. This stimulation will slow or even stop the resorption (shrinkage) process that is natural when teeth are missing.
Helps Retain Your Facial Features and Structure:
The natural process of resorption (shrinkage) that occurs when you have an unhealthy or under-stimulated jaw as a result of missing teeth can, throughout time, cause the distance between your nose and your chin to shrink. This shrinking can make your face look “sunken-in” and prematurely aged.
Dentures Worn on the Upper and Lower Jaw are More Comfortable:
When your overdenture is retained with implants it fits more securely than one held in with only adhesives. This fit also increases the stability of the overdenture reducing or even eliminating, unnecessary movement during chewing and talking. This lessens the instances of sores and embarrassing dislodgement.
