How can we help you?
We want you to be educated about the dental services and treatments we offer because the more information you have, the more proactive you will be about managing your own oral health. All your questions are important, and no question is ever too small.
We've answered a few of the questions we hear most often, but we encourage you to contact our office if the information you're looking for is not provided here.
As dental professionals, we want you to receive the highest quality treatment that is most appropriate for your specific needs. Especially with larger procedures, sometimes it's important to get multiple opinions. We understand the feeling of wanting a second opinion, especially with procedures that are expensive or life-changing. This is why we do offer second opinions here at our office.

Our team can help you determine what the best treatment options are for your needs, and help you find a provider that you really feel comfortable with! We also specialize in a number of procedures and services, both restorative and cosmetic, and hope you will consider our friendly team for your procedure.
Second Opinion Dentist in Indianapolis
If you're unsure about any procedure and would like a second opinion, please feel free to contact our office to arrange a consultation with Dr. Uhl.
Having your wisdom teeth (also known as third molars) removed is a decision that should be made after consulting with Dr. Uhl or an oral surgeon. Often times, there is not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to erupt into place. This condition is called "impaction". Impacted wisdom teeth could form cysts around them, potentially damaging neighboring teeth or the surrounding bone.
Why Wisdom Teeth Often Need Extracting
Wisdom teeth that partially erupt into the mouth could cause complications due to a greater chance of bacteria being trapped underneath the gums. This could lead to pain, swelling, or difficulty opening and closing the mouth.
Wisdom teeth that are fully erupted and exposed may not have to be removed. However, they are typically hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss, which puts them at a high risk for tooth decay or gum disease.
