Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace one or more missing teeth! During this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the jawbone and allowed to set. The jaw bone grows around it, forming a tight connection.
These small titanium shafts (dental implants) stop the bone loss that is associated with missing teeth. They serve as replacement tooth roots that maintain your facial shape and anchor your brand new teeth.
Once your new dental implants have integrated with your jawbone, Dr. Erickson will attach each replacement tooth to the top of an implant. This is a permanent solution that has many advantages over dental bridgework.
Dental Implant Expertise at Jordan Landing
Many dentists send their patients away to specialists for tooth implant placement. At Jordan Landing Dental Care, we have all of the resources and expertise you need to receive perfect dental implants!
We can both place and restore your dental implants right here in our office.
Advantages of Dental Implants
- Do not rely on the surrounding teeth for support. They won’t stress, damage, or affect your remaining healthy teeth.
- Can be used to install permanent bridges, dentures, or crowns–the choice is yours!
- Stop jaw bone loss for good so that you can maintain a functional bite and a youthful appearance.
- Do not need to be adjusted. If you choose implant supported replacement teeth, they will never become loose or uncomfortable.
- Are reliable, staying firmly in place while you chew, speak, and smile.
- Are easy to brush and floss and can last for a lifetime!
Mini Dental Implants
We also provide mini dental implants. These implants are about half the diameter of traditional implants, and are mostly used to stabilize lower dentures.
Our mini dental implants can be placed in a single appointment and can be immediately used! The cost of mini dental implants is about 50-70% that of standard dental implants. To find out if you are a candidate for mini dental implants, contact our office.

Sinus Lifts and Bone Grafts
If your teeth have been missing for any length of time, the bone of your jaw may have begun to recede. Every implant post needs a solid place to anchor the synthetic crown. If the bone is too thin, an implant may not be able to fuse securely.
Sinus lifts and bone grafts are both treatments that remedy this problem. Simply put, these procedures build up the bone’s thickness, so you can qualify for implant placement.
We want to help you get your mouth back to its full health and will work with you through the graft process in order to accomplish that goal.
