Aspiring to Provide Personalized Smiles
Tooth loss is a common problem in the U.S. and worldwide, with an increasing prevalence among older adults. Nearly 70% of adults aged 35 to 44 years have at least one missing tooth, and one in four aged 74 and older are missing all of their teeth. In addition to affecting your beautiful smile, gaps and spaces can have a significant negative impact on your oral health and function.
The good news is due to advances in dental technology and in-house dental lab coupled with extensive training, the highly skilled team at Aspire Implant Centers offers several different tooth replacement options in Valparaiso, IN. Together, our prosthodontist Dr. Michael Drone and board-certified oral surgeon Dr. Timothy W. Surber have helped thousands of patients restore their smiles, oral health, and full enjoyment of life.

From implant supported dentures to same-day TeethXpress in Valparaiso, IN, our team is dedicated to providing you with tooth replacement options that blend clinical excellence with a compassionate touch.
Traditional Dentures vs. Dental Implants
While traditional dentures have come a long way due to advancements in technology and are less expensive than dental implants, they have some downsides. If not properly secured with denture adhesive, they can slip out of place while eating or speaking. They can also cause an infection or tooth decay if they’re fitted improperly and require regular cleaning and replacement.
Although dentures can complete your smile, they restore only 20% of natural function and don’t prevent bone loss. As such, denture wearers often experience changes in their facial structure, thereby causing an appearance of premature aging. With full mouth dental implants, you’ll never experience the problems associated with shifting dentures. Dental implants restore nearly 100% of chewing function and preserve jawbone density, thereby helping to prevent further bone loss.
Full Mouth Tooth Replacement Options
Tooth replacement options are far more sophisticated today than the dentures worn by your grandparents! Thanks to significant improvements in dental prosthetics, you no longer have to worry about teeth slipping, becoming loose, or falling out while talking and eating. Our experienced team has a successful track record helping patients restore their smile function and aesthetics with diverse, personalized tooth replacement options in Valparaiso, IN. Together, we’ll help you make an informed decision and choose the best solution to fit your unique cosmetic, functional, and financial needs. We also offer a full spectrum of sedation dentistry to ensure ultimate comfort during your procedure.
A dental implant is a small titanium or ceramic (zirconia) post that bonds with healthy bone and acts as an artificial tooth root. It is firmly anchored into the jawbone and after fusion (osseointegration) with your natural bone, provides a secure foundation to attach the natural-looking restoration.
Dental implants offer the most stable, reliable, long-lasting, natural-looking, and versatile tooth replacement option available today. As such, they’re considered the gold standard option for missing teeth. With proper care, dental implants restore over 98% of natural function and can last a lifetime.
At Aspire Implant Centers, we leverage advanced skills, computer-guided surgery, smile preview software, and our in-house lab to plan the desired restoration and implant placement, then carry it out precisely.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are anchored directly to your jawbone, just like natural teeth.
Dental implants halt bone loss and encourage new bone growth, thereby helping your jaw maintain its strength and face retain its appearance. Implants enable dentures to feel great and provide more stable functionality.
Implant-supported dentures in Valparaiso, IN stay firmly in place, allowing you to smile from ear to ear, chat with friends, speak clearly, eat most of the foods you love, and never struggle again with loose restorations.
We understand it can be confusing when you’re considering full arch dental implants because of the many patented solutions.
The TeethXpress dental implant procedure can be placed much faster than traditional implants and is ideal for individuals with complete tooth loss or low bone density. We have used this unique solution for many patients that aren’t candidates for traditional full mouth dental implants in Valparaiso, IN with great success.
As an immediate load solution, TeethXpress requires an initial consultation and examination, followed by a second appointment in which four to six dental implants are placed along with abutment posts and prosthetic screws. You won’t have to suffer another day with missing teeth because you’ll also receive a natural-looking set of temporary teeth fabricated at our in-house lab the same day. After healing, you’ll receive a beautiful permanent set of new teeth.
