If you are hesitant or unsure about the investment you’re about to make in dental implants in Portland, Dr. Megan McInnis and her team want you to feel confident about your decision. Not only are you choosing a superior treatment solution, but dental implants are the only tooth replacement method that can deliver undeniable stability and functionality. We know you have options, and we understand there are other solutions that can give you the look you want, but when it comes to investing in your smile and your oral health, there’s no better option than dental implants.
Dr. McInnis is proud to be able to provide her patients with a variety of dental implant options. Why? The reason is that you might have one, multiple or all your teeth missing, and should any of these instances occur, it’s nice to have a stable solution that can meet all three dental needs.

A traditional bridge or dentures need to be replaced every decade or so, but dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Not only are they the longer-lasting solution, but they’re also:
Although most dental insurance companies do not cover the cost of dental implants, you may be able to have parts of the process covered, including your initial consultation, anesthesia, pre-implant dental work.
