Benefits of Dental Implants
You are probably already familiar with conventional options for replacing missing or damaged teeth, but how much do you know about dental implants? Dental implants have been around for a while and are one of the best choices for replacement teeth, so here are a few of Beaverton Oral Surgeons's favorite benefits.
You Probably Qualify for Implants
Yep, chances are you are either already eligible for dental implants or could be made eligible with the help of treatments like cleanings and bone grafts. Whether you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, there is a type of implant that can help you. You just need to have healthy teeth, gums, and bones. Here are other ways you can prepare for implants. You can also read up on the implant procedure.
Implants Support Your Long-Term Health
Only dental implants can stop the bone loss that starts immediately after losing a tooth. Dentures can actually accelerate this process and erode your gums as well since they are directly supported by your gums and the underlying bone.

The Most Affordable Option
Yes, most implants are actually more expensive when directly compared to other options such as dentures or a dental bridge, but this price does not take into account how different options stack up over time. Bridges will need to be replaced every few years as wear and tear take their toll. Dentures will also need to be regularly replaced, plus they have the added recurring cost of cleaning supplies and other necessary maintenance. And since dentures can damage your long-term oral health, this means more appointments and more treatments, all of which add up.
No One Will Ever Be Able to Tell You Have Implants
If you want a flawless smile, then you want dental implants. No matter what material you choose, dental implants look the best alongside your natural teeth, blending in so that no one can ever tell the difference. We carefully sculpt and polish every implant to perfection, matching it to the precise tone, hue, and shape of the rest of your teeth.
Implants Will Last the Rest of Your Life
When we place implants, we place them to last the rest of your life. Not only are they incredibly durable, but they are also actually tougher than your natural teeth so that you never have to worry about what you are eating like you do with dentures. Implants do not even need special maintenance to stay durable. Dental implants last a long time! You take care of them just like you care for the rest of your teeth, by brushing twice a day, every day, just like the American Dental Association recommends. And do not forget to floss!
