Dental Implants are a very popular method of permanently replacing missing teeth. They are extremely durable and are built to last for many years. Our office provides experienced care for dental implants, so call us today to find out what your options for tooth replacement are!
One of the main benefits of the procedure is that a dental implant looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. We make sure to match the color and shape of the dental implant with your other teeth so it blends in seamlessly. With a dental implant in place, you’ll be able to chew, speak, and smile with ease again. Better still, dental implants have many additional benefits including how they help retain your face shape, prevent bone loss in your jaw, and keep your surrounding teeth from shifting into spaces and changing your bite.

Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are another option if you either don’t want or can’t get regular implants. They are a smaller version of their traditional counterparts where the implant serves as the artificial tooth root. We can typically place them in just one appointment, and the procedure doesn’t require any major surgery. You’ll be able to go back to your daily routine without any downtime! Another plus is that they are more affordable than traditional dental implants.
One of the most common uses of mini dental implants is to support other tooth replacement options like dentures or bridges. Doing so means you can enjoy a better fit without any slipping or discomfort, and you won’t have to deal with adhesives. Our team is happy to help you decide whether traditional dental implants or mini dental implants are right for your needs.

Dental Implants FAQ
Do dental implants hurt?
Since dental implants involve oral surgery, you may be wondering if getting them hurts. During the procedure, you shouldn’t experience any pain. We always ensure that the proper anesthetic is applied so that our implant patients can sit through their treatment comfortably. During your recovery stage, you may experience some discomfort as the numbness wears off, which should lessen as time goes on. We will discuss pain medication options to help you during this normal part of the healing process.
How do I care for dental implants?
One of the great things about dental implants is that you can care for them like your other teeth. You should use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush them twice a day, and remember to floss at least once a day, too. For extra care, you can also add an antimicrobial mouth rinse to your routine.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
For the dental implant procedure, it’s important that you have a healthy jaw, which means enough bone in your jaw to support the implant. If you’re interested in getting dental implants, we’ll first take images to ensure you’re a good candidate. If it’s determined you have an insufficient amount of bone in your jaw, we can discuss your other tooth replacement options.
How much do dental implants cost?
There’s a wide range in the cost of dental implants depending on how many teeth you’re replacing and whether your insurance covers the procedure. After a tooth implant consultation, we can give you an accurate, personalized cost estimate. At Jackson Smiles Family Dentistry, we have a number of financial options available to help you get affordable dental implants.
