While we do our best to protect and preserve your natural teeth, removing a damaged or infected tooth is occasionally the best way to support your overall health. When an extraction becomes necessary, you can count on us to be ready with a full range of teeth replacement options to complete your smile and restore function.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants consist of the artificial tooth root, which is a cylindrical screw that we surgically place in your bone. The implant is made from biocompatible material, such as titanium, so that it integrates with your natural bone, creating a stable support for an implant crown.
The implant crown is the part of the implant that you will see and that will complement your smile. Our restorations are custom designed so that they look completely natural.
Most Indianapolis dentists will agree that the dental implant is the best way to replace missing teeth because of its convenience and health benefits. Since dental implants mimic your natural tooth, you can brush and floss them normally. They also provide the added benefit of preserving precious bone that supports all of your teeth.
Dr. Pasicznyk has over 200 hours of implant placement education and expansive experience in practical application. His exceptional skill level will give you excellent results.
At Northview Dental of Indianapolis, we use the latest 3-D cone beam technology to plan the ideal placement of your dental implants. High-resolution imaging allows Dr. Benson and Dr. Pasicznyk to precisely detect bone density and choose a location for implant placement that will give you the most stability and best results.
Advanced imaging with 3-D cone beam technology also allows us to avoid biological structures such as sinuses and nerves when placing your dental implant. The ability to see your jaw in three dimensions dramatically increases the likelihood of successful placement.
Single dental implants – We use single dental implants to replace missing teeth. They are standalone structures that mimic your natural tooth.
Implant-retained bridges – For multiple missing teeth, you can combine the bone-saving benefits of dental implants with the economic solution of dental bridges. Using a single dental implant, or more, to anchor your dental bridge allows you to replace more teeth without using a partial denture.
Implant-retained dentures – If you struggle with ill-fitting or loose dentures, several strategically located dental implants can give you the added stability and confidence you need to eat and speak comfortably. Your denture will lock into place on your dental implants and stay put.
Replacement of all teeth – For patients with missing teeth that want to avoid dentures or partial dentures, we offer the replacement of all of your teeth with dental implants. This promotes the added benefit of bone retention.
