Dental implants are the type of tooth replacement that is as close in look, feel, and function to a natural tooth as possible. That is because their structure replicates a real tooth, right down to the roots!
There are other options available like bridges or partial dentures, but they only sit on top of your gums. While they’re both an excellent solution for restoring appearance and some function, dentures lack the artificial root structure that makes dental implants the standard of care for tooth replacement.
Made of biocompatible titanium, the implant post is placed surgically in your gum and allowed to heal throughout several months. During this time, the implant fuses fully with surrounding bone and tissue. After healing, Dr. Uhl attaches a porcelain crown to it that restores your appearance and allows you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably and with confidence.
We would like to help you enjoy the renewed confidence of a whole and healthy smile, and a dental implant may be the perfect solution for you. If you are struggling with tooth loss and would like to learn more about dental implants at our Indianapolis office, please call to arrange a commitment-free dental implant consultation with Dr. Uhl.
