Traditional and Cutting-edge
At Jackson Dental we offer beautiful traditional dentures that afford patients with no teeth or teeth that are not salvageable the ability to smile confidently. Our highly trained and experienced lab technicians use only premium materials and the cost is as competitive as any in the Southeast Missouri area.
An alternative to traditional dentures, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time the bone of the jaw permanently fuses to the dental implant, which allows for a tremendously stable and comfortable anchor to support missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants offer the ability to replace missing teeth without having to rely on other healthy teeth for anchorage, in some cases, providing a more economical alternative to traditional bridgework. Dental implants have been shown to have one of the highest long-term success rates of any dental procedure. When properly placed in a healthy individual, dental implants are the most permanent solution to missing teeth, allowing the patient to chew, speak, and smile comfortably and confidently for many years.
Jackson Dental and Dr. Bell are proud to offer this cutting-edge service at an affordable price to the people of Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. Dr. Bell has traveled extensively learning implantology from experts across the country.
How dental implants work:
Dental implants are placed into the bone onto which a traditional upper or lower denture would rest and allow for anchoring of full upper and/or lower teeth through the use of connecting abutments. These false teeth can be removed for cleaning or permanently attached to the implants.
The benefits of dental implants
- Dental implants are anchored which prevents shifting of the false teeth, which preserves oral tissues and reduces the risk of embarrassing situations.
- Placement and anchorage of dental implants in the bone inhibits the resorption of the bone and allow for the teeth to be comfortable for a longer period of time than dentures.
- More comfortable than dentures due to the more conservative and less cumbersome borders used to achieve stability and retention.
