Dental Implants in The Dalles, OR

Board-certified Dental Implant Specialists

Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons in The Dalles, OR, offer excellent oral surgery services and tooth replacement options. Dental implants are one of the most popular tooth restoration options because they are natural looking, permanent, and practical. They have no removable parts, making them the most similar replacement option to your natural teeth. In fact, most patients find that they can hardly tell the difference between their implants and their normal teeth.

American Society of Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD)

Our practice was chosen to be a member of the American Society of Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD) because of our surgeons’ high standards of patient care. We work together with your dentist to form patient-centered treatment plans, and we perform a high volume of dental implant procedures every year, making us more experienced and qualified than a non-ASIRD practice might be. To learn more about our Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and ASIRD membership, feel free to contact our office.

Benefits of Dental Implants in The Dalles, OR

Types of Dental Implants

  • Single Dental Implants. One full replacement for an entire tooth.
  • Immediate Implants. Implant posts are placed the same day as a tooth extraction, decreasing the number of appointments needed to replace the missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge. Dental implants can support the bridge where multiple teeth are missing beside each other. This option allows patients to preserve their healthy teeth without the need to grind them down to fit the bridge.
  • DIEM® Full-Arch Restoration. Dental implant posts are inserted to support a fixed denture in the upper and lower arches, fully restoring the smile and oral function.

Dental Implant Surgery Procedure

The process of receiving dental implants usually involves two or three visits to the office, where your oral surgeon and dentist will work together to complete the procedure.

First, you will have a consultation and oral examination, where your oral surgeon will review your oral health situation and form a treatment plan. Your oral surgeon may also take 3D imaging of your mouth, allowing your surgeon to visualize important structures and nerves before your procedure. These 3D images can also be used to create custom surgical guides to streamline the entire process. Anesthesia and sedation options will also be explained to make sure you are relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

On the day of your procedure, your surgeon will administer your anesthesia, ensuring that you feel no pain during surgery. Your surgeon will place the posts into the bone beneath your gums. Once the procedure is complete, your designated driver can bring you home to rest. Patients must undergo a healing period of several weeks to a few months before they can fully chew with their new replacement teeth, but the vast majority of people find that having permanent replacement teeth is well worth the wait. Your dentist may be able to make a temporary prosthesis for you to wear during the recovery period.

Cost and Value of Dental Implants

Traditional dentures cost less upfront, but they must be replaced every 5 years and do not prevent jaw bone deterioration. Dental implants, however, remain in your mouth at all times and are cleaned with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits. They have a high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care.

The cost of your dental implant depends on how many you need, your insurance, your choice of anesthesia, and if you require additional procedures. We discuss all of this with you during the initial visit.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

While dentures or bridges can be a quick, non-invasive fix for tooth loss, these options do not fully restore functionality or prevent jaw bone atrophy. Dental implants are an excellent alternative to dentures or bridges, and they fuse to the jaw bone to prevent bone loss. Many patients who choose traditional dentures often turn to dental implants because they are more convenient, comfortable, and longer-lasting.

Full-arch restoration is a treatment that uses multiple implant posts to secure a fixed denture. You can undergo this treatment in one or both dental arches for a complete smile makeover. Your new teeth will look, feel, and function just like healthy, adult teeth. Contact our office to learn more about your options for denture replacement in The Dalles, OR.

Types of Anesthesia

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

Cath Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"My name is Cath, and I live in Washougal. I came to Beacon because I needed to have a molar pulled and to have an implant. I was immediately impressed. The people at the front desk were very friendly. It was the first time that I’ve had this done, and so I did have some anxiety. However, after talking to the first person here, I left without any anxiety. I felt that I was in very good hands from the beginning to the end. Dr. Rehrer is extremely professional, but at the same time, very personal. He makes the experience as easy as it can be for the patient. After the experience that I had, if anyone in Camas needs any kind of dental procedure, like an extraction or an implant, I highly recommend that they come to Beacon Oral Surgeons."

"My name is Austin, I’m from Portland, and I came to see Dr. Lieblick for a dental implant. This office is a beautiful, new facility. I like the peaceful nature of the surroundings. It’s very comfortable. Dr. Lieblick has been a very attentive and very capable oral surgeon. What I like about him is his very straightforward approach and his clearly warm and caring personality. And the results have been perfect. I don’t use that word often, but they have been. I have had a fantastic experience here at Beacon. For my friends and family in Portland and Milwaukie, Oregon, I highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons."

"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."

Kelly Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Kelly. I’m from Battle Ground, Washington, and I’m a 38-year-old man scared of the dentist. One of the root canals in my teeth went bad, and I didn’t really want to deal with it anymore. I heard about Beacon, and the cool technologically advanced practices they’re doing with implants, and I thought I’d give it a shot. They were just really great to work with, right out of the gate. Dr. Lieblick was awesome, and he gave me a comfort level that I didn’t normally have with previous dentists or oral surgeons. They really had an explanation of what was going to happen, and they made me feel relaxed about it. Basically, I think the greatest thing about the implant was the long-term benefit. I didn’t want to keep going to the dentist and getting root canals and getting it fixed, having root canals fail – that’s just no fun at all. I’m just really happy with it. To me, it was so cool with what they’re doing over here at Beacon. I think it’s just an amazing process, and I’m not so scared anymore. I’ve got a lot of friends around this area, in Clark County and Portland. I think a lot of my guy friends don’t like to go to the dentist, either, even though they’re afraid to admit it, but I’d recommend Beacon to all of them, for this procedure and anything similar to it."

"Hi, my name is Elizabeth from Camas, Washington, and I came to see Dr. Rehrer for a dental implant. It’s a really great environment. Everyone’s really helpful and they’re really willing to explain everything to you no matter how many questions you have. Dr. Rehrer is a really great surgeon and he helped me through the process of getting a dental implant. The text messages helped prepare me for the procedure that I was going to have. I also received a video with post-operative instructions, and I found that to be really helpful. It was a really great experience. For my friends and family in Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, I highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons."

Frequently Asked Questions

Does food get under implants?

Dental Implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that allows you to care for them just like natural teeth. You can brush, and floss daily to keep your mouth clean and healthy.

Who is not suitable for dental implants?

Patients who have suppressed immune systems or severe bone loss may not be candidates for a dental implant. It is likely that if you are healthy enough to undergo a general surgery procedure, you are healthy enough to receive a dental implant.

Do all dental implants need bone grafts?

Bone grafting is not always necessary for dental implant placement. If your oral surgeon decides that there is a need for a bone graft it is because it can significantly improve a positive treatment outcome.

How painful is getting a dental implant?

During your initial visit anesthesia and sedation options will be discussed to ensure that you are comfortable during your procedure. Dental implant surgery usually causes minimal discomfort that is controlled with over the counter pain medication.
