Restoring Indianapolis Smiles with Dental Implants

dentist checking woman's smileIf you want an attractive, durable, and permanent solution to replace missing teeth, then you’ll want to learn more about dental implants. Drs. Farthing and Tepner use this modern restorative solution to complete smiles, increase confidence, and improve a patient’s quality of life. A dental implant consists of a manmade tooth root topped with a custom crown or other dental attachment. Dental implants mimic the natural structure of our teeth in color, durability, shape, and texture. Drs. Farthing and Tepner may recommend dental implants to you if it’s determined that your jawbone is strong enough to support one or more implants. We may refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for the first phase of treatment if your situation requires it.

In the first phase of care, one or more implant posts are surgically placed in the jaw, one for each missing tooth or a few to attach a partial or full denture. Then, following surgery, we’ll give your mouth time to heal. As this happens, a process known as osseointegration will begin.

During the osseointegration phase, your implant naturally bonds with the jawbone, creating a strong bond that mimics the bond between the jaw and a natural tooth root.

Once the osseointegration process is complete, you’ll begin the restorative phase of your treatment. In the restoration phase, Dr. Farthing or Dr. Tepner attach a custom-made crown or prosthetic atop the implant(s), completing your smile and your treatment.
