Your dental cleaning is one of the most important things you can do to keep your mouth healthy, your breath fresher, and your teeth whiter.

Plaque and tartar continually accumulate below the gum line irritating the gum tissue causing gum inflammation. If this inflammation in the gums, or gingivitis, persists and is not treated can result in periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can result in bleeding gums, bad breath, and/or tooth loss.

If you are experiencing any symptoms or if it has been over six months since your last teeth cleaning, call us today for an appointment.

Indianapolis sedation dentist, Dr. Tim Bacsa, will take the time to select the right sedation option for you. We will be happy to maximize any insurance benefits you may have while keeping your costs low.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous Oxide is a simple and mild gas to enhance comfort and to reduce anxiety. The effects wear off in minutes and no escort is required.

Oral Sedation

This option is as easy as taking a pill. It will greatly reduce your anxiety about going to the dentist. Best of all, you will not remember anything about your visit. You will need an escort while under the influence of this sedative.

IV Sedation

Sedation dentistry can put you at ease and virtually eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures. Intravenous sedation is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.

Benefits of IV Sedation

  • It’s extremely effective for moderate to severe anxiety
  • It’s quick-acting
  • The level of sedation can be adjusted during the procedure so that you remain comfortable at all times
  • In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit

During intravenous sedation (IV sedation), an anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream to achieve a state of “conscious sedation.” Although you will not actually be unconscious, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation – and probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.

Dr. Bacsa has undergone advanced training and has obtained certification in order to administer IV conscious sedation to his patients. You will need an escort while under the influence of this sedative.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Indianapolis dental implant specialist, Dr. Tim Bacsa, will take the time to explain the tooth replacement options that are right for you.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are engineered to replicate the form and function of your teeth. Titanium dental implants are secured into the jaw onto which a crown can be placed to replace your missing teeth.

Why get dental implants?

Dental implants are a safe and predictable way to replace your missing teeth or secure a loose denture.

How long does the process take?

With implant dentistry, you will never have to go without teeth. If a tooth needs to be replaced with a dental implant, often times it can be placed the same day.

How much do dental implants cost?

Dental implants are an investment. We will be happy to maximize any insurance benefits you may have while keeping your costs low.



We offer braces for teens and adults! Straight teeth are important for maintaining a healthy and confident smile, especially for children and teens. Traditional braces provide comprehensive treatment which typically lasts between 12-24 months. A shorter term treatment option can be used for adults wishing to straighten the front teeth quickly, usually on the order of 6 months.

In addition, we also provide Invisalign clear braces. This option is great for minor tooth positioning issues. Invisalign uses a series of removable, clear plastic aligners to gradually and gently reposition your teeth.

Fixed Dentures

Fixed dentures, sometimes called “all-on-4” dentures are dentures secured through the use of a small amount of dental implants. Usually this is more cost effective than replacing all of your teeth with dental implants and for some patients with bone loss it prevents the need for bone grafts.
