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.

Cathy Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Cathy, and I'm from Hood River. My doctor in Hood River examined me and determined that I had a fractured root and that the tooth would need to be extracted. The procedure I had done with Dr. Lieblick was first an extraction of my tooth, and then several months later, I had the dental implant — the post — implanted. The implant process itself was quite easy. Recovery process was very, well, unremarkable. I was very happy with everything. Everything had been explained to me by Dr. Lieblick and his staff. The staff in Dr. Lieblick's office was top notch in my opinion, and I've worked in a medical office for 23 years. They were very sweet and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Lieblick has a wonderful chairside manner. He's very sweet, he's very kind, answers any questions. Was a wonderful overall experience. I would have all of my friends come and see Dr. Lieblick."

"Hello, I'm Eileen; I'm from Moro, Oregon, and I am one of Dr. Lieblick's patients. I had had previous dental implants, and they failed, and then Dr. Lieblick took me on as a patient, and so I am still seeing him. He has tremendous rapport with his staff. The staff — these women — they're always playing jokes. I like the staff very, very much, but I'm not sure I should ever tell them that. Dr. Lieblick is a professional, but he also has this inner glow about him, and all of them just think that he's the greatest thing, and so do I."

The staff is very warm and kind and made me feel at ease throughout the whole procedure. Dr. Lieblick is super friendly, and so knowledgeable, and a great doctor. Dr. Lieblick took the time to explain everything to me thoroughly, and I felt really comfortable going forward. My procedure went really well. It was really quick—feels like a natural tooth. For my friends and family in Hillsboro and Beaverton, I highly recommend Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons."

Andrea Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"My name is Andrea, and I'm from the Dalles, Oregon. I went to Beacon Oral Surgeons because I needed an implant done. I actually had had a tooth that I'd had a root canal done on at one point in time, and I had some problems with that, and I ended up needing an implant. I was nervous about the whole procedure. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, and any surgery is always a little scary for people. The staff at Beacon was great. Dr. Rehrer was great. They were very welcoming; they had a great sense of humor, all of them. It was really easy for me to walk in there and feel comfortable. The procedure went really well. I was actually quite amazed at how quick and simple it was and really painless, so I didn't expect that, but that was a nice surprise. I would definitely recommend Beacon. If you're concerned or nervous about the procedure, they really will put you at ease, and it's a great place to go."

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.

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.
