We are proud to recommend dental implants in Fishers, IN, if you have tooth loss. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants replace your entire tooth, including the root. This makes them natural-like and ideal for function, longevity, and aesthetics.

Types of Dental Implants in Fishers, IN

Dental implants can be single or work with prosthetics.

Single Dental Implants

Single dental implants are one tooth root surgically implanted in the jaw. After the new root integrates into the bone, we crown it with a custom, durable dental cap.

Implant-Retained Bridge

Sometimes patients have one or two missing adjacent teeth and don’t want a single implant for both teeth. In this case, your dentist can use one implant to secure a dental bridge to the jaw. A dental bridge is one or two teeth fixed inside the mouth to complete your smile.

Implant-Supported Denture

When you have complete tooth loss, you don’t want to think about single implants for this many missing teeth. Instead, your dentist in Fishers, IN can talk to you about four to six dental implants to secure a custom denture. This means a stable denture that never needs to be relined for long-term fit and function.
