Looking for Affordable Portland Dental Implants?

Now you can replace one or more damaged or missing teeth with Portland implant dentist Dr. Edward Ward. Modern dental implants look and function as if they were your own original teeth. Each replacement tooth can be permanently replaced, anchored into the jaw itself, offering a more natural alternative to a dental bridge or the need for dentures.

If you have a healthy strong jawbone and healthy gums, you are likely a great candidate for a tooth implant. During the procedure, the dentist inserts a metal anchor into the jawbone. The two fuse together to form a permanent bond. Later, an artificial tooth or crown is attached, leaving your smile looking 100% natural.

At Interstate Dental Clinic we know that many of our patients are concerned about the cost of dental implants. Please don't let that prevent you from considering this natural-looking, comfortable and permanent solution to damaged, diseased or missing teeth. Our friendly staff will be pleased to explain a wide range of affordable financial options to fit your budget.

Want to learn more about the benefits of implant dentistry? Call us now at (503) 285-5307 or complete our simple online form to schedule a consultation. We're dedicated to providing you with affordable, top-quality dental care.
