Why Replace Missing Teeth?

If even a single lost tooth is not replaced soon enough, multiple difficulties may occur over time:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Shifting teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Changes in the bite
  • Loss of bone
  • Changes in jaw lower face shape
  • Speech problems

If you have noticed any of these problems, call our office at 317.204.7134. We will do our best to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. One of our top priorities is prompt care.

Treatments for Missing Teeth

There are several restorative options for patients at North Meridian Dental Excellence:

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace tooth roots and provide stable support to the mouth and adjacent teeth. Constructed of a titanium post, abutment, and crown, dental implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can replace one or several consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to secure dental bridges and fill in gaps between teeth. This solution is best for patients who have a supportive jawbone structure, and removable bridges are recommended for patients with less structure.


Full and partial dentures can also be supported by implants or natural teeth for a stable foundation. This procedure replaces several teeth or whole arches of teeth for long-lasting results.
