Indianapolis Dental Implants: It’s Easier Than You Think
There are several options available for patients who are missing permanent teeth. A dental implant is one option. Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures or using adjacent teeth as anchors as with fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that our oral surgeons surgically place in the jawbone. Composed of titanium metal that “fuses” with the jawbone through a process called “osseointegration,” dental implants never slip or make embarrassing noises to advertise the fact that you have “false teeth.” Dental implants also do not decay and, if properly cared for, can last a lifetime.
