A: The best type of implant for your mouth entirely depends on your current oral health and other factors specific to you. For many people, traditional implants work great. In other cases, mini implants or implant-supported dentures might be a better option. It all just depends on your specific circumstance.

The only way to know which option is best is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ericksen. During your consultation, Dr. Ericksen will complete a thorough examination and take X-rays of your mouth. After that, he will work with you to determine the best type of implant for your mouth. To schedule a consultation, call 801-997-1137 or fill out our online form.
