Missing teeth interfere with your appearance, chewing function, and oral health. It is important to replace them as soon as possible.
Dental implants are small titanium posts placed in the jaw. They mimic tooth roots and can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Dr. Ramsey E. Wilson places and restores implants at our Collins, MS, dental practice for convenient, streamlined care.

The Dental Implant Procedure
The total length of your implant treatment depends on several factors, including the type of implant placed, the type of implant restoration you choose, and your body's healing capacity. In most cases, dental implant treatment takes about three to six months to complete. Here are the general steps to expect during implant treatment coordinated by our dentistry practice:

Worried about Cost? Our Collins Practice Accepts Insurance and Offers Financing
Dental implants aren't covered by basic insurance, but the adjoining restoration such as the crown, denture, or bridge usually is. Our team works with you to help you get the most out of your benefits. We accept all insurance, including Medicaid and CHIPS.
We understand this dental solution can be a significant investment. That's why we offer financing through CareCredit, a third-party company that splits the cost into monthly payment plans, giving patients more time and flexibility to pay for the care they need.
Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire dental arch, implants can help restore your smile.
Types of Implant Restorations
A single dental implant and custom crown are an excellent solution for a patient who is only missing one tooth. Unlike a traditional bridge, this procedure does not require any alteration of healthy natural teeth.
Patients who have a large gap due to two or more consecutive missing teeth may be candidates for an implant-supported bridge. These restorations are similar to their traditional counterparts, but are attached to dental implants rather than natural teeth.
Those who are missing most or all of their teeth can benefit from implant-supported dentures, which can be removable. They are secured to the jaw with dental implants for exceptional stability and restored function
Fixed Full-Arch Bridge
Some patients prefer a fixed solution instead of a removable denture. In these instances, a full-arch hybrid denture can be supported by six to eight implants. This type of denture can only be removed by your dentist.
If significant bone loss has occurred, patients may not be eligible for standard implant treatment. All-on-4® is an alternative method that uses strategic implant placement to maximize existing bone. A fixed full-arch restoration is supported by just four implants.
Recovery and Aftercare
Take Medications as Directed
Dr. Wilson will provide you with prescription medications, which should be taken exactly as instructed. Patients can also take over-the-counter pain relievers as needed.
Avoid Tobacco Products
Smoking interferes with the body's healing process. In fact, smokers are far more likely to experience postoperative complications, including infection and implant failure.
Attend All Follow-UpsOnce your implant or implants have been placed, your oral surgeon will schedule you for a few follow-up visits at our Collins office. It is important to attend these appointments to ensure that you are healing appropriately.
