Introduction to Dental Implants Benefits

Illustration of the anatomy of an implantIf you have missing teeth, dental implants from Jackson periodontists Dr. Roger Parkes and Dr. Stewart can help you look and feel good again. 

People lose teeth for different reasons – tooth decay, gum disease and injuries are common. Dental implants with Jackson periodontists Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart are now the preferred treatment over traditional dentures and bridges. Dental implants in Jackson with Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart also work well for patients who already have dentures and bridges that need replacing or reinforcement. 

Why patients say NO to dentures and bridges:

  • Bone loss. Dentures cause bone deterioration and sagging facial muscles. Dentures rest on the gums, never making contact with the jaw bone to keep it stimulated and strong. Dental implants from Jackson periodontists Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart stimulate and preserve bone.
  • Diminished tooth strength. Dental bridges weaken the teeth bridges needed to function. That’s because your existing teeth (abutments) are grinded down so the bridge fits in between them. That weakens the teeth and places them at greater risk for damage. 
  • Embarrassing noise. Chewing and speaking with dentures can be challenging and noisy. Eating and talking with dental implants from Jackson periodontists Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart is easy and natural.

Donna Martin shares her dental implant testimonial, and describes how she suffered with dysfunctional removable dentures that caused her embarrassment and constant complications. Drs. Roger B. Parkes and R. Clarke Stewart used the All-on-4® dental implant technique to support her new natural-looking dentures. Donna's life has completely made a turn for the best, and she credits the specialists at Periodontal Associates of Jackson for her improved quality of life.

Why patients say YES to dental implants with Jackson Periodontist Drs. Parkes and Stewart:

Dental implants from Jackson periodontists Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart work like ordinary teeth and tooth roots because they are placed right in your jaw bone to stimulate it and keep it strong. 

  • Dental implants from Jackson periodontists Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart are made from decay-resident titanium and blend right in with your jaw bone (osseointegration) for a sturdy, long-lasting fit.

Most patients are perfect candidates for dental implants with Jackson periodontists Drs. Parkes and Stewart; however there may be some concerns to discuss first: 

  • Bone loss. If you are missing bone, Dr. Parkes or Dr. Stewart may suggest bone grafting
  • Untreated gum disease may need treatment before dental implants. 
  • In rare cases, certain medical conditions and medications are an issue for dental implant candidacy
  • Smoking may interfere with the success of your dental implants.
