Tooth loss has a negative impact on your appearance and, more importantly, your oral health.
Dental implants are widely regarded as the most reliable and longest-lasting tooth replacement option.
At Family Dental Care serving Jackson, MS, our dentists place and restore implants so our patients can enjoy healthy smiles.
How Common Is Tooth Loss?

Restorations Supported by Dental Implants
If you are missing a single tooth, it can be replaced with one dental implant and a crown. Many patients choose this procedure over a traditional dental bridge because it lasts longer and does not require modification to the adjacent teeth.
Those who are missing multiple teeth in a row can replace them with an implant-supported dental bridge. This restoration is similar to a traditional bridge, but it is attached to implants instead of the adjacent teeth.
Individuals with traditional dentures often complain that their prosthetic teeth slip and wobble, making eating and speaking difficult. Dental implants eliminate this problem by providing a secure base for full or partial dentures.
Our doctors are happy to offer treatment with the All-on-4® method. Using this approach, our doctors can attach a full denture to only four dental implants. This innovative option requires less healthy bone tissue than traditional implant treatment, making it a more accessible solution for many patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth.
You Don’t Have to Live With Missing Teeth Call our Jackson dental practice to begin your smile restoration today
Just because it is common doesn't mean you have to suffer from tooth loss. A missing tooth can not only cause jawbone deterioration but also other oral health problems, such as shifting teeth and TMJ disorders. Painful TMJs can result from an unbalanced bite as you adjust to chewing and speaking with a missing tooth, leading to headaches, pain in your jaw, and uneven wear on your teeth.
Dental implants and a custom restoration can restore your oral function and health. Contact us online or call our Flowood dental practice today to start your journey to a beautifully restored smile with dental implants.

Why We Use Titanium Implants A Proven, Premium Dental Material
Some dentists offer ceramic implants. However, we choose to use titanium implants because this material is the industry standard for a reason.
Titanium is ideal for the critical process known as osseointegration — the fusing of the implant into the gum and jawbone. Titanium is also very durable. A dental implant made from this material can last a lifetime.
One selling point used to advertise ceramic implants is that they mimic the color of dental crowns. However, the implant's color is a moot point since your titanium implant should not be visible once it is topped by a restoration.

Dental Implant Candidacy Factors
Anyone who has sustained the loss of one tooth or multiple teeth can be considered for dental implants.
Jawbone StrengthTooth loss results in jawbone atrophy. If your jawbone has weakened substantially since the loss of your teeth, it may not be strong enough to support an implant. Fortunately, we can reverse the effects of bone loss through bone grafting.
Good Overall Health
To qualify, patients must be in good overall health. Individuals with chronic medical issues, such as uncontrolled diabetes, may not be eligible.
Good Oral Health
Candidates should also be in good oral health, free from serious problems like gum disease or extensive decay. These issues can have a negative effect on healing and should be addressed prior to any implant procedure.
Smokers should consider kicking the habit for good before implant surgery, as tobacco use seriously hinders healing and increases the likelihood of implant failure.
Our Expert Dentists Will Evaluate Candidacy For You
Far too often, patients wrongly disqualify themselves from dental procedures. It can be easy to believe that you have too many missing teeth and oral health issues to ever have a functional, beautiful smile. Call (601) 936-2526 or write to our dentists so they can see if implants can rebuild your health and confidence.

Maintaining Your Dental Implants
Fortunately, a dental implant does not require much more care than a natural tooth. Here are a few recommendations from our dentistry team:
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Brush your teeth two to three times a day using a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush. Clean each tooth surface thoroughly, and remember to focus on the gum line as well. Floss around your implant-supported restorations every day using floss threaders or interproximal brushes.
Keep Regular Appointments
Visit our dentistry practice for routine exams and cleanings. During these appointments, our dentists can assess the health of your dental implants and ensure they are in good condition. Our hygienists can also clean hard-to-reach areas and demonstrate proper hygiene techniques.
Titanium implants can last a lifetime, but if you suspect there is a problem with a prosthetic tooth or dental implant, do not wait to address it. Contact our practice and schedule an appointment. The sooner an issue is addressed, the better. Waiting can allow the problem to worsen, and more advanced procedures may be necessary.
All Procedures Carry Some Risks But Dental Implants Have an Amazing Success Rate
As with any surgical procedure, dental implant treatment involves a certain degree of risk. Possible complications may include:
- Nerve pain or discomfort
- Excessive bleeding
- Perforation of the maxillary sinus
- Post-operative infection
- Damage to neighboring tooth or tissues
Overall, dental implants have impressive success rates of up to 98%. The best way to minimize the risk of complications is to choose experienced dentists like those at our practice in Flowood, MS. Thanks to our nearly 100 years of combined experience and our advanced technology, we can offer the best possible restorative dentistry to patients in the greater Jackson area.
