“My first experience of having a crown was negative. It was performed by another dentist in Indianapolis. When the procedure was completed I vowed to never have another crown again and to avoid it at all costs. When my dentist moved out of state I made my first appointment with Dr. Garry for a cleaning. The office was open and inviting. I felt at ease quickly. After my cleaning I was disappointed to be informed I would require a crown. After my last experience I completely dreaded my appointment. I had worried so much about getting the crown and was anxious for it to be over as soon as possible. I was numbed and given several shots and didn’t feel anything. Dr. Garry began drilling and worked nonstop until the procedure was completed. He did ask me several times if I was ok and I was fine and feeling no pain. Overall my experience with the crown was positive and although I do not want another crown if it was recommended, I know I would do just fine under Dr. Garry’s care. I give his office 5 stars out of 5.”Carrie Duckworth

Why Choose Us?

family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry

Practically Pain-Free Dental Care: One of the main reason people love our office is because we do EVERYTHING possible to make sure you don’t feel a thing! One of my goals is to make pain, fear, and anxiety a thing of the past when going to the dentist! I personally have a low tolerance for pain. I don’t want to hear, “This will only hurt a little.” No, that’s not good enough for me. As far as I’m concerned… I Don’t Want It To Hurt At All! I’ve always hated even the prick of that darn needle, but there is now a great way we can give you an almost 100% pain-free injection!

Affordable Dentistry for the Entire Family: We know dentistry isn’t the most inexpensive cost in your life, even though it is a necessity. We’ve found that putting off dental care has led to some disastrous dental experiences for our patients that could have easily been avoided if they came in and received minimal care. With that said, we accept insurance, and we have payment options that allow you to run your payments as far as 5 years out.

Raising Cavity-Free Kids Program: We specialize in helping parents raise cavity-free children. We used to blame cavities on too many sweets and poor teeth brushing habits. It used to be the child’s fault. However, those days are over. With improved technology it may be possible to eliminate tooth decay in children. In other words, the unpleasant dental experiences of your youth do NOT have to be repeated on your children. We do everything in our power to make sure you are aware of the specific ways to prevent tooth decay for your child. What that means is you save money and your child remains healthy!

Emergency Service Available: If you ever experience a dental emergency, I will make sure you are seen as soon as possible during our business hours. Simply call us at 317-865-3733 to schedule your same or next day emergency appointment!

Headphones and watch DVDs while you get care! You get to watch the movie of your choice while we give care.

Straight Teeth for Teens Program: There is nothing more important than keeping your teenagers teeth straight before it gets too late.

Drill-Free Dental Care: We use lasers to eliminate cavities!

No Needles Needed: With sedation dentistry and nitrous oxide you no longer need to be afraid of those long, sharp needles.

Orthodontics

invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners.
Invisalign is breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted — without the hassle of braces.

The clear alternative to metal braces.

By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.

Less treatment time.

An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You’ll see your Invisalign Certified Orthodontist or Dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your doctor for your course of treatment.

Clear and comfortable

Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.
All across the country, people like you now have great smiles and straighter teeth, thanks to Invisalign. Why not join them? To schedule an appointment call Dr. Garry today. That gorgeous smile you want is just a click away!

Cosmetic Dentistry

This is the biggest breakthrough in Dentistry! Dental veneers have taken dental patients from extremely frustrated, embarrassed, and hiding their smile to now smiling more than ever…and being accused of looking 10 years younger!Extreme Makeover Show

As you might have seen on the hit show “Extreme Makeover”, people would come in lacking self confidence, embarrassed by their bodies, their faces, and most importantly, their smiles. You can fix how a person dresses, get their hair and makeup looking great, have them lose 20 pounds, but an unattractive smile will be noticed first and above all else. That is why the secret that ties it all together is a gorgeous smile. And with today’s cosmetic dental procedures, there is not excuse why we can’t all have white, straight, and attractive smiles that we are proud of.

Our mission is to show our patients that ordinary people can now have the beautiful smile with affordable, comfortable, and specialized cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Garry is committed to changing lives one smile at a time!

Dental Implants

If you’re missing one tooth or all of your teeth, dental implants may be the perfect thing for you. If you have a small dental bridge or partial dentures, implants will be a welcome alternative. Implants are an alternative to a fixed bridge. What is great about implants is that they will last a lifetime, but the crowns on top of it will last ten to fifteen years. If there are any problems with either of them before those times, we will fix them for free.

Solution No.1: Mini Dental Implant Dentures

before and after dentures

While nothing could ever replace or be better than your real teeth, Dr. Garry is here to tell you that you’ll no longer need to worry about all the common problems you are currently experiencing with your current dentures. There IS a way that you can have stronger teeth, a better bite, and more confidence that your teeth won’t move around or fall out at the wrong moments, and all of this can be done in just 2 hours or less without Surgery, Drugs, or Healing time required!

Which means that when you walk out the door of Edward Garry Family Practice, you’ll actually have a denture that stays in place, won’t move around, pop-up, rub, or fly out of your mouth every time you sneeze or cough. There’s very little post-procedure pain, which we can take care of with a prescription anyway, and the cost to you is much less when compared to conventional implants! It’s simply amazing!

The greatest thing about these new dentures is that it allows you to have more confidence and prevents the fear of your dentures pulling up when you chew, or falling out of place when talking with others. Plus this new procedure is faster, costs less than conventional and slower procedures, and requires no healing time.

We are one of the few dental practices in the area who offer this new procedure.

Solution No.2: Dental Bridge

before and after dental bridge

A dental bridge is a false tooth that is fused between two crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place that are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth are known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.

In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth, a cantilever bridge may be used. Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as long as ten years or more.

If you have missing teeth and have good oral hygiene practices, you should discuss this procedure with your cosmetic dentist. If spaces are left unfilled, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position. Additionally, spaces from missing teeth can cause your other teeth and your gums to become far more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

General Services

“For years I have had trouble with my teeth, finally I realized something needed to be done. Meeting Dr. Garry and his staff was the best experience with a doctor that I have ever had. They are very kind and caring. Dr. Garry explained that denture implants would be the best procedure for me.

The evening after the removal of my teeth and the implants placed, I had a light supper. No pain and very little swelling! I wish I had this done several years ago. Thank you!”

Edward Garry Family Dentistry provides the best plan to meet you and your family’s specific needs at the most affordable prices available. Our office performs a number of convenient general dentistry services such as:

Root Canals – In most cases we do them in a single visit, from start to finish. Root canals can be done very quickly and painlessly.

Crowns – Almost all the crowns we do in the office are all ceramic crowns, rarely and in only special circumstances do we do porcelain fused to metal crowns. In an effort to provide the most life-like crowns and bridges, we will do all ceramic or all-porcelain crowns. Like root-canals we can do them in a single visit.
