The Periodontal Associates of Jackson is Expanding Its Patient Territory to Accept Patients Needing Dental Implants from Ridgeland, MS

Share Article

The Periodontal Associates of Jackson announces it is now accepting patients from Ridgeland, MS who are in need of dental implants. The dental implants procedure, now available to Ridgeland residents, uses the system known as All-on-4™ which places four implants in the patient's jaw bone to support a new or existing dental prosthetic.

At Periodontal Associates of Jackson, Dr. Roger B. Parkes and Dr. R. Clarke Stewart are now offering a dental implant technique to Ridgeland, MS residents, that already has area residents enjoying permanent teeth in a simple office visit. The dental implants procedure involves an initial appointment where the doctor will determine the location of the patient's best bone density, and numb the area with a local anesthetic. The procedure is called All-on-4™, and Ridgeland residents are now able to replace the annoyance and distraction of traditional dentures with the permanent, natural feel of replacement teeth that rest on four dental implants placed at strategic locations.

After Dr. Parkes or Dr. Stewart places the four implants in the patient's jaw bone, the All-on-4™ dental implants procedure can be completed with the addition of a temporary or existing denture. In a process called osseointegration, the body accepts the metal as part of the bone and grows together with it, which occurs over the course of three to six months. This permanent bond with the dental implants will give the new replacement teeth the stability they require to remain in place, once they are permanently fitted. The new functional replacement teeth can last a lifetime with proper care.

After a few months of allowing the posts to integrate with the patient's bone, the doctor fits and installs the final prosthetic so the patient has a new smile and the ability to eat all kinds of food again. For people who have lived for years with the frustration of dentures that slip and click and limit the diet to soft food that is easy to chew, the All-on-4™ system is the answer Ridgeland patients have been seeking. Dental implants will provide lasting, natural looking replacement teeth that patients can enjoy for years.
