While Indianapolis Dentistry offers many tooth replacement options, the truth is dental implants are the best permanent solution to replacing lost or broken teeth. Research and dental experience show that dental implants are a safe and convenient way to replace lost teeth with natural-looking and lasting results. We have listed many of its benefits before and in this article we list three indications that you might need a dental implant.
3 Indications that You Might Need a Dental Implant

But even if it isn’t, a missing tooth can cause other underlying problems if not dealt with. It always the best option to have missing teeth replaced, no matter how few they are.
- You have been wearing dentures for a long time - Jawbone resorption and shrinkage is the biggest disadvantage when you have been wearing dentures for a long time. A dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone and takes the place of the natural tooth root, preventing further bone resorption and actually stimulating bone growth too.
- You experience trouble eating and chewing - If you’re experiencing trouble eating and chewing food, then you might opt for a dental implant. An implant is also constructed to withstand the pressure from everyday chewing and eating. This means that you’ll have the freedom to eat what you want when you want. As we have said, dental implants are the ones closes to natural teeth!
