What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are long-term replacements that your doctor surgically places in the jawbone. These dental implants are composed of titanium metal that "fuses" with the jawbone through a process called "osseointegration". Implants never slip or make embarrassing noises that show the world that you have "false teeth," and because they are made of titanium you do not have to worry about decay. Also, given the fact that the titanium is surgically inserted into your jawbone, you will typically not have an issue with bone loss.
Dr. Eriksen believes implants are the best solution for replacing missing teeth. He can diagnose the need for them and educate patients on their benefits. Once implants are placed Dr. Eriksen will also perform the final crown restoration. To find out if dental implants are right for you, contact Dr. Eriksen today!
