Fishers’ Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth

Sometimes, people mistakenly think that if they are missing a tooth in the back of their mouth that isn’t visible when they smile, that they don’t necessarily need to replace it. However, missing teeth can cause oral health problems that extend beyond cosmetic appearance.

Healthy teeth that neighbor the gap left behind by missing teeth can shift, unbalancing your bite and causing bone deterioration over the long term. Also, healthy teeth have to compensate for lost teeth, which increases the stress on teeth when you bite.

While there are many options to replace missing teeth, dental implants are an ideal solution for patients who want the closest-to-natural restoration option. Dental implants are a permanent solution, and look and function just like your real teeth. They can replace a single tooth or many missing teeth, and help promote oral health by stopping healthy teeth from shifting.

At Simply Dental, Dr. Clauss can both place and restore your dental implants. That means you can have the entire process completed by the team you trust in the office you’re most comfortable in. We don’t send you to a different oral surgeon for implant placement, making the whole treatment more convenient for you.

Dr. Clauss will be with you every step of the way, from surgery to restoration. First, a titanium post is inserted into your jaw, fusing to the bone during healing. This post acts like the roots of your natural teeth, which is why it stops your bone from atrophy, and will be used to hold a customized crown restoration.

We use cone-beam CT technology to find the areas of your jaw where the bone is the strongest. In cases of single implant restorations, cone-beam scans help us find accurate placing.

You’ll be amazed at how great dental implants can be. And when properly cared for, they can last through a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Simply Dental offers traditional dental implants as well as:

  • Implant-Retained Dentures: Patients who have ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures, or those who want the security of dentures that don’t require adhesive, may find implant-retained dentures an attractive solution. We place four dental implants which anchor the dentures, ensuring a comfortable fit. The dentures won’t come loose or accidentally slip out, but are removeable.
  • All-on-4: This implant solution is a fixed prosthetic option for patients with a series of missing teeth, similar to the style of a dental bridge. However, instead of being anchored by healthy teeth, these restorations are held in place by four dental implants, making them a permanent option that looks natural.

Ask us if dental implants are right for you. We ensure that no matter how you chose to replace your missing teeth, at Simply Dental, you’ll always get the care you expect and the comfort you desire.
