Benefits of Dental Implants

If you are looking for a long-lasting and high-quality replacement for your lost or damaged teeth, then dental implants are a great choice. Dental implants are far and above the most popular whole mouth restoration option available. Our professionals at Willamette Valley Periodontics not only install dental implants, but we also perform all necessary procedures to prepare you for implants.

After hearing so many great things about dental implants, you are probably wondering what exactly makes them so great. Dental implants offer better function than alternatives like dentures. They are also the most durable restoration available and look like real teeth.

Superior Function

Dental implants provide better function than dentures or dental bridges. This is largely due to the fact that dental implants are installed directly into your jawbone. The titanium posts of the implants offer stability that cannot be achieved with dentures.

Dental implants also provide a bite strength near that of your natural teeth. This bite strength allows you to enjoy more of the foods you love and means that your implants will not involve as many dietary restrictions as other treatment options. Being able to sufficiently chew your food is also vital for proper digestion.

Natural Look

While dentures have improved over the years, they can still look slightly different or even a little larger than real teeth, which can make them stand out more than you would like. Since dental implants are created using advanced digital imaging techniques and are created in a similar manner to traditional crowns, the sizing, and shape of them is more accurate.

Dental implant crowns are made of high-quality porcelain, which provides a semi-transparent look comparable to that of natural teeth. They are also extremely stain-resistant and easy to keep clean. This means that your new smile will stay looking great for years to come.


Dental implants can be extremely durable, with proper care. Dental implants can last 20 years or more! A great advantage is that if the crowns of your implants become damaged or worn, your dentist can fit you for new ones and install them on your existing posts with ease. However, like any treatment, dental implants do have risks that should be thoroughly discussed with the surgeon placing the implants and your general dentist prior to placement.

How Do I Get Started?

The first step on the road to your new smile is to schedule a consultation appointment with our team. During this appointment, our professionals will conduct a thorough oral exam and take digital x-rays of your oral cavity. This information is used to make sure that your mouth is healthy enough for dental implants. If not, our team can usually correct these deficiencies through the use of bone or soft tissue grafts.

If you are ready to find out if dental implants are the right restoration for you, then it is time to come see us at Willamette Valley Periodontics. Whether you have already made up your mind or just need more information, you can reach us by calling our office at (971) 261-1926 today. You will be glad you did.
