Dental Implants in Camas, WA

Prevent Bone Loss and Restore Your Smile

If you have missing or damaged teeth, we encourage you to visit our office in Camas, WA, and consider dental implants. Dental implants are an ideal solution for replacing teeth because of their close resemblance to natural teeth. More traditional options, such as bridges and dentures, focus on restoring the appearance of your smile; however, they do not address the functional issues that often accompany tooth damage and bone loss. Dental implants are uniquely designed to replace a tooth from root to crown, allowing them to provide you with similar function to a natural tooth. This complete restoration also helps patients avoid bone loss and dental shifting. At Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, our philosophy is to put patients at the center of everything we do and ensure they receive an outstanding experience. Contact our office in Camas, WA, to learn more about how we can improve your oral health.

Benefits of Dental Implants in Camas, WA

Types of Dental Implants

  • Single Dental Implants. One single replacement for a full tooth.
  • Immediate Implants. Your surgeon will place an implant post immediately following tooth extraction, lowering the amount of appointments needed to replace the missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge. Dental implants are placed to support a bridge where many teeth are missing next to each other, eliminating the need to grind down healthy teeth to fit the bridge.
  • DIEM® Full-Arch Restoration Multiple dental implant posts are inserted to support a fixed denture in the upper, lower, or both arches, giving the patient a completely restored and functional smile.

Dental Implant Surgery Procedure

The key to successful implant placement is ensuring that each patient receives personalized and compassionate care. The first step of your treatment will be the consultation appointment, during which your oral surgeon will review your medical history, take 3D scans of your mouth, discuss your options for anesthesia, and answer any questions you may have. It’s important to us that you are at the center of your treatment team and always understand what to expect.

During your surgical appointment your oral surgeon will place your implant screw into the empty tooth socket. In some cases, the abutment and/or replacement tooth will already be attached to the screw; however, these are more commonly placed at a later date. When the screw is in position and your anesthesia has worn off, you can return home.

Over the next several weeks to months, your surgical site will heal, and the implant will integrate with your jaw bone. If your replacement tooth was not placed during your surgical appointment, you will visit your dentist when the integration is complete, and he or she will attach the custom-designed crown. Many patients also discuss a temporary crown with their dentist to wear during the initial healing period.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Patients with missing or damaged teeth who are healthy enough to undergo an outpatient dental surgery are often great candidates for dental implants. In most cases, patients need to have enough bone left in their jaw to support implant placement, but we also offer several bone grafting surgeries for those who have suffered bone loss.

Contact our office in Camas, WA, for a consultation where your oral surgeon will examine your mouth and jaws and determine which course of treatment is right for your tooth restoration needs. Our office serves patients in Camas and Vancouver and will determine if dental implants are suitable for your smile.

Cost and Value of Dental Implants

The cost of your dental implant is determined by the number of implants you need, your insurance coverage, your choice of anesthesia, and if you require additional bone graft procedures. All of this will be discussed with you during your initial visit

Removable dentures and bridges cost less upfront, but do not preserve jaw bone health by preventing bone atrophy. They require special rinses for cleaning and must be replaced every few years. Dental implants are a permanent solution that allow you to maintain your oral health with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Dental implants are the ideal solution for patients looking to replace dentures. Dentures must be replaced every few years, cleaned in special rinses, and removed during meals and brushing. Many patients find removable dentures to be embarrassing and seek a more convenient, long-term solution.

Dental implants are a great way to get your smile back and alleviate the burden of traditional full or partial dentures. Several dental implant posts can support a fixed denture in one or both arches, resulting in a brand new, secure smile. This treatment is known as full-arch restoration. Call us to learn more about this life-changing treatment and denture replacement in Camas, WA.

Types of Anesthesia

We offer several options for anesthesia to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Cathie Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"My name is Cathie; I work with Keilman Dental Clinic in The Dalles, Oregon. A long time ago, I had a root canal done on a lower tooth. There was really no choice to save it. It was either take it out and put nothing there or take it out and put an implant there and have something permanent. At first, I kind of fought the idea because I thought I was too young to have an implant, but the more I’ve learned about it, the more I realized it’s really the final restoration to have—it’s the best restoration to have. It will not fail. It’s definitely natural; my bite comes together really good so I don’t even know I have something different in there. It just healed really great; I didn’t have any problems whatsoever."

"Hi, I’m Cooper from Camas and I came to Dr. Rehrer for a dental implant. When I first walked in, the people at the desk were very welcoming. They knew my name and they took care of me right from the start. Dr. Rehrer, when he came in the room, sat down with me. He was very clear. He was patient. He was funny, and he explained everything I needed to know right away and very clearly. I would say I had probably the best experience you could have getting an implant. They did such a wonderful job with the implant itself—the fitting of it, the matching of the color. I can’t even tell anymore that I have it. I highly recommend Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons."

Maggie Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Maggie, and I live in West Linn, Oregon. I have had one dental implant, and I’m working on a second one with Dr. Lieblick. When I first was recommended to him by my dentist, I was a little bit nervous about the whole process – it seemed very detailed, and the thought of putting a screw in my jaw didn’t appeal to me. The whole procedure was very easy, very comfortable. I had very little pain, and hence, the second time I needed one, I went back to the same office. Dr. Lieblick and the staff were very supportive. They answered all of my questions, especially the first time around when I was fairly concerned about what was going on. I really appreciated the phone call the day of the surgery, that evening, from Dr. Lieblick, just asking how I was doing. On several occasions, even the second time around, I had to call the staff for questions, and they were always very kind and patient to answer my concerns. I would highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons to any of my friends. I have a couple friends both in Oregon City and West Linn that I would recommend and have recommended the office to."

"Hi, I’m Michael from Vancouver, WA, and I came to see Dr. Lieblick for a dental prep. The office staff is very accommodating. They are very helpful in keeping you relaxed. Dr. Lieblick is very unobtrusive. He comes in and he fits in with what you’re doing. He could very well be my best friend. The procedure did go well. It was done before I knew it was done, and when he stood up and said he was done I was shocked. For my friends and family in Vancouver and Camas, Washington, I highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons. Definitely five-star quality."

Frequently Asked Questions

How painful is getting a dental implant?

Patient comfort is one of our highest priorities and we offer many different anesthesia and sedation options to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Simple procedures like extractions and implant placements may only require local anesthesia, while IV sedation is used during more complex procedures so you can rest until the procedure is over.

What is the downside of dental implants?

There are possible complications with any surgical procedure, but our doctors and team at Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons will provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions to guide you through each part of your procedure.

Do they put you to sleep for dental implants?

Having a dental implant is a surgical procedure which means anesthesia or sedation (oral or IV) will be used to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Though some may choose to stay awake during the procedure, many opt into sleeping for the sake of comfort and relaxation.

How long does implant surgery take?

A dental implant procedure can take 1–2 hours per implant. The length of surgery will be discussed with you during your initial appointment, and our doctors and staff are available to answer any questions you might have throughout the pre-operative and post-operative process.
