Just one missing tooth can cause a gap in your smile that leads to difficulty eating and troublesome oral health issues.
With dental implants, the specialists at Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. can restore your smile from top to bottom.
Find out why patients from Clinton, Ridgeland, Jackson, MS, and beyond turn to our team for this premium tooth loss treatment.
What Are Dental Implants And How Do They Work?
Dental implants are small titanium posts designed to replace missing tooth roots. They are surgically embedded in the jawbone and fuse with the tissue over the course of three to six months. This process is known as osseointegration. Once osseointegration is complete, the implants can support crowns, bridges, or dentures with unmatched stability.
A Closer Look at a Key Implant Benefit How They Help With Jawbone Preservation
Every time you bite down, your tooth roots send stimulating signals to your jawbone, which keeps it healthy. When you lose a tooth, the underlying jaw tissue quickly begins to weaken. After a certain point, this can affect your other teeth and oral structures with complications like dental misalignment, further tooth loss, and a sunken facial appearance.
For patients who are missing teeth, it's a matter of when, not if, these problems will occur. Dental implants are the only option to stop this natural bone loss, which is why we so strongly recommend them to any patient interested in filling the gaps in their smile.

Why Visit a Periodontist For Dental Implants?
There are many general dentists, even here in Jackson, who offer dental implants. So why should you visit a periodontal practice like ours for implant dentistry? Because our doctors, Roger B. Parkes and R. Clarke Stewart, are more than regular dentists.
After receiving their degrees in dentistry, they both went on to pursue three additional years of specialized education in issues of the gums and jawbone–a field known as periodontics. They possess a deep understanding of and skillset to treat even the most complex issues of these oral structures. Implant dentistry falls right in line with this specialty. If you want dental implants, you want a specialist like a periodontist to provide them.

We Also Offer All-on-4 Dental Implants A New Take on Implant-Supported Dentures
Maximize Existing Bone Tissue
In All-on-4, the two posterior titanium implants are placed at a strategic angle that maximizes contact with the jaw tissue. Essentially, they can do the same job with less to work with.
Avoid Bone Grafting
Because All-on-4 makes the most of existing bone tissue, many patients who are missing most or all of the natural teeth along a dental arch and have jaw atrophy but cannot or do not want to undergo bone grafting can still qualify for an implant-supported denture. This means fewer procedures and can potentially save months on total treatment time.
Receive Fewer Implants
All-on-4 is different because it uses just four implants to support a denture rather than the six to eight required for a traditional implant-supported denture.
Enjoy an Immediate Temporary Denture
Another benefit of All-on-4? You can be fitted with a lifelike and fully functional temporary denture immediately after the implants are placed. While it will still take a few weeks to craft your permanent restoration, you'll be able to start enjoying life with a complete smile as soon as you leave our Jackson office.

Nervous About Implant Placement Surgery? We Have You Covered With Sedation Options
Dental implants are placed surgically, so it's completely normal to feel anxious about the procedure. However, we don't want a second of your experience with us to be anything less than positive, so we're happy to offer calming sedation, as well as local anesthesia to block pain.
Even though the implant procedure involves surgery, we want you to know that it isn't actually especially uncomfortable. Many of our Jackson implant patients are pleasantly surprised to find that it isn't much more unpleasant than having a tooth extracted after local anesthetic. Still, there are many different reasons to choose sedation, from dental anxiety to trouble sitting still, so we can discuss your options if you're interested.
The Dental Implant Timeline Reviewing the Process Step by Step
As periodontists, Drs. Stewart and Parkes have developed a comprehensive understanding of the gums and jaw, as well as the dental issues that relate to them. They are an excellent choice if you're looking to restore your smile with dental implants.

We Place and Restore Dental Implants For More Convenient Care
Not all dentists can place dental implants, and not all periodontists can create dental restorations, but we can do both. This means we can handle every step of the treatment process without having to refer out to another practitioner. Our Jackson, MS, dental office, serving Clinton, Ridgeland, and surrounding communities, is even equipped with the technology to design and craft smaller restorations, like dental crowns, on-site.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost? Your Payment and Financing Options
It usually costs about $1,795 to replace one tooth with an implant and restoration at Periodontal Associates of Jackson. Restoring an arch of teeth with All-on-4 implants and a denture typically costs around $12,000. Both of these price points are significantly lower than the industry average.
Unfortunately, implants are rarely covered by dental insurance. However, if you are insured, your implant-supported dental crowns, bridges, or dentures should be eligible for at least partial coverage.
Our practice accepts all types of dental insurance other than PPOs. We can even file a claim on your behalf to help you get the most coverage possible from your provider. We also accept financing through CareCredit®. With flexible financing, you can secure a loan that is repayable in monthly installments that work for your budget.
