Tooth loss can be detrimental to your appearance, and it can also have a devastating impact on your oral health and ability to eat.
Dentures are custom-made appliances that can replace several missing teeth or an entire dental arch to restore your smile and confidence.
Drs. Danny O'Keefe and Jan O'Keefe Belote provide traditional and implant-supported dentures at their Flowood, MS, dental practice.

Been a patient with FDC for 20 years now and have been highly satisfied with the dental work that I have received.

They have a friendly staff, short waiting time, very competent dentists and assistants. They file my insurance properly too! Yay!

Can Dentures Help You? Candidacy Checklist
Advanced Tooth Loss
One missing tooth or several teeth can be successfully replaced with an implant-supported crown or a dental bridge. However, if you are missing multiple teeth in several spots in one or both jaws, partial dentures may be an appropriate solution for you.
Complete Tooth Loss
Patients who are edentulous (those who have lost all of their natural teeth) can reclaim their health and confidence with full dentures. Today's appliances are built using the most advanced materials to ensure natural-looking results.
Decayed or Damaged Teeth
Tooth damage or decay makes teeth weaker. In these cases, extracting and replacing natural teeth may be the only viable option. Patients who have sustained tooth loss due to extensive decay can benefit from dentures.
Gum disease attacks the supporting bone and gum tissue. Left untreated, this condition leads to loose teeth and sometimes tooth loss. Individuals who have lost several teeth due to periodontal disease can restore their smiles with dentures.
Your Journey to a Complete Smile
Maintaining Your Oral Health
Tips for Denture Wearers
After receiving their dentures, most patients go through a short adjustment period. It will take some time to become accustomed to your new appliance. However, you will quickly learn how to eat and speak comfortably and effectively. Our Flowood dentists recommend starting out with soft foods and incorporating more solid foods as your comfort level allows.
To properly maintain your new appliance, proper oral hygiene is essential. Be sure to brush your teeth and gums, and clean your prosthetic regularly. Whether you choose conventional dentures or implant-supported dentures, you will need to visit our dentists regularly for exams and cleanings. If you ever damage your restoration, bring it to our office for repairs.

The staff was very polite and did an awesome job of helping me understand what was needed and talked me thru all the procedures , setting up appts with oral surgeons and helping me remain calm , I was very pleased with my service there!!!
Dr. Belote, Blaire and Amanda have gone above and beyond in my experience thus far. I have always had a fear of dentists after having an extremely traumatic experience as a child. Let me just say, " NO MORE FEAR!"
The Affordability of Dentures
If you have any reservations about the cost of this solution, we want you to understand that dentures are covered by most insurance plans because they are a restorative treatment with practical benefits. Typically, up to half of the cost of your dentures will be covered.
Our staff will be glad to work directly with your insurance provider on your behalf in order to secure the best possible coverage.
Taking Action Now
Can Be Priceless
Receiving dentures now can also save you money later on. For example, it can be difficult to maintain proper nutrition when missing teeth compromise your ability to chew and other oral functions. By restoring oral function with dentures, you can avoid developing health conditions that could be expensive to resolve in the future.
Will I Need Tooth Extraction?
When you have remaining teeth, but they are compromised by severe damage or decay, they may need to be removed before receiving dentures. Tooth extraction is a simple and common procedure. We use gentle, modern techniques combined with anesthesia and optional sedation to make sure you are relaxed and calm through every stage of your treatment.
