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 dental 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 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.

If You Are Missing a Tooth, You Are Not Alone
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.
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.
The Bone-Saving Benefits Of Dental Implants
When the jaw loses the stimulation the tooth root once provided, it begins to deteriorate. This deterioration can lead to adverse effects such as loose teeth, further tooth loss, and a sunken appearance around the mouth. Receiving implants in a timely manner after tooth loss can save you from the adverse effects jawbone atrophy can have on your oral health and the potential need for bone grafting later in life. Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry solution that can stop and prevent jawbone atrophy, provide support for restorations, and restore oral function.
