5 Things To Know About Dentures in Indianapolis

implant dentures FishersIf you have lost your natural teeth due to gum disease or an accident, you have more options than you might realize. Replacing them with conventional dentures, or something else, not only improves your appearance – it will improve your overall health.

1.Dentures are not the only replacement option for missing teeth. Whether dental implants are used alone or in combination with a partial denture, they may be a more effective option for some patients. A removable appliance replaces only the visible parts of teeth, but an implant replaces both the root and crown of a tooth. This is important for several reasons. Dental implants can prevent bone recession, which commonly occurs following tooth extractions. Dental implants also furnish patients with a near-normal ability to speak and chew.

2. There is more than one type of denture. Most men and women are familiar with the removable denture that replaces a complete upper or lower arch. There are also partial dentures for patients who have some original teeth. Partial dentures can either be fixed in the mouth, or detachable.

3. Even if you have worn dentures for a while, you may be a suitable candidate for implant-anchored dentures. The critical factor is whether you have enough bone to support an implant. Bone grafting can augment natural bone in some patients. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Dale Behner to find out if you are an appropriate candidate.

4. Regardless of your tooth replacement configuration—full dentures, partial dentures, or tooth implants—you still need to practice proper oral hygiene. Removable appliances should be cleaned daily.

5. Even if you have no existing teeth left, it’s essential that you have semiannual dental examinations. Optimal oral health is an essential component of overall physical well-being. Dr. Behner will examine your mouth for indications of cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes. It is also a good idea for your dentist to examine the condition of your appliance at your visit.

Dr. Dale Behner, one of the most experienced and skilled dental professionals in the Indianapolis area, has competence with many tooth restoration care. Call 317-842-2337 today to schedule an appointment.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
