If you are looking to replace lost teeth and protect your oral health, dental implants could be the answer.
Implants provide the best crown and denture support while preventing bone atrophy in the jaw.
Dr. Jay Measells in Vicksburg, MS, uses the latest technology to provide the very best results.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a landmark in dentistry when it comes to tooth replacement. Implants are small titanium devices that are inserted into your jawbone to replace lost tooth roots. Once the titanium fuses with your jawbone, the implant can support artificial teeth, from a single crown to a full denture. Implants are the closest thing to having your natural teeth back.
An important advantage of implants over other tooth replacement methods is that they can also stop the bone loss that occurs when you lose teeth. Implants are also long-lasting. While the artificial tooth attached to the implant will periodically need to be replaced, the implant itself can last for decades, or even a lifetime, when properly cared for.
What Do Dental Implants Cost?
A single titanium dental implant at Dr. Measells' practice in Vicksburg is $1,500. An implant restored with a crown and abutment (the device that connects the implant to the restoration) costs $1,900.
It's important to note, however, that these are just estimates for the procedure and price can be influenced by a patient's unique dental needs. For example, larger restorations such as dentures cost more and also require more implants. Meanwhile, some people need preparatory procedures, such as bone grafts, in order to qualify for implants.
Basic insurance does not cover the cost of implants or abutments, but most plans will contribute to the cost of dental restorations. We offer CareCredit® financing to help make any remaining out-of-pocket expenses affordable.

How Many Teeth Can Implants Replace?
If you are missing one tooth, a single implant can be used to support a single artificial tooth. Dr. Measells prefers this solution over the traditional dental bridge. That's because if a bridge is used to replace one tooth, two nearby healthy teeth need to be crowned to support it.
If you are missing several teeth, two implants can support a dental bridge. The beauty of this solution is that Dr. Measells will not have to alter nearby teeth to support the bridge. Implant-supported bridges also can replace more teeth than a traditional bridge.
Multiple implants can support a full denture, ensuring that it will never slip or cause friction against the gums like traditional dentures. Dr. Measells also offers All-on-4® implants that allow people with low bone density to qualify for implant-supported dentures.
A single titanium dental implant at Dr. Measells' practice is $1,500. An implant restored with a crown and abutment (the device that connects the implant to the restoration) costs $1,900. We provide financing to make this solution a fit for your budget.
