Replacing teeth with custom dentures from your Indianapolis, IN dentist restores confidence

Old man getting treatments

When permanent teeth are lost, every area of life is affected in some way. Today, we have more solutions for missing teeth than ever before, paving the way for healthier, longer-lasting restoration of the smile. Even with innovative new choices in the way of dental implants, which can replace one or more teeth, many people still think of dentures first when seeking tooth replacement. In our office in Indianapolis, IN, our dentists work with patients to determine the most suitable treatment for missing teeth. The process begins with a discussion of the patient’s needs and expectations, in terms of both aesthetics and function.

Tooth replacement is designed with great attention to detail. We understand the need for attractiveness; function in terms of speech and chewing, and for structural support. Custom dentures are carefully crafted using high quality materials and precise measurements. Patients may also choose to have dentures stabilized by the insertion of a few dental implants. Dr. Church, a member of the American College of Oral Implantology, has completed extensive training in dental implants.

Dental implants have been used as a form of tooth replacement for over three decades. Different from a denture appliance, implants are designed to replace individual teeth through the insertion of a tiny post into the jawbone. Over time, fusion between the bone and the implant takes place, permanently securing the implant. The benefit to this design, coupled with a denture appliance, is that only a few implants are needed to provide stability. Additionally, the jawbone continues to receive the stimulation it needs for structural preservation, so facial contours remains more youthful.

Tooth replacement is personal to each patient. Offering various options, we seek to meet the unique needs of each patient. Though dental implants are superior in terms of long-term stability, your dentist is experienced in the management of a durable, attractive denture appliance. With careful planning and ongoing support, a conventional denture has the capability of serving your needs for years.
