A Dental Consultation in Portland: Are Dental Implants Right for You?

After patients with missing teeth have a dental consultation in Portland with Dr. Robert Henshaw and understand the differences between conventional treatments and dental implants, the choice is usually pretty clear. For a variety of reasons, dental implants are often the preferred way to replace missing teeth over dentures, bridges and other types of procedures.

  • Dental implants are very natural looking and perform as well as real teeth.
  • Dental implants protect the bone by stimulating it the same way human tooth roots would.
  • Dental implants stay put. They never move or slip when talking or eating the way dentures do because they fuse right to your jaw bone for a dependable and comfortable fit.
