Benefits of Dental Implants in Gresham, OR

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but when periodontal disease, trauma, or other diseases strike, they may need to be removed or fall out on their own. The oral surgeons at Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons offer solutions for patients with one or more missing teeth, so that our patients can return to a healthy and confident smile.

A tooth’s root stimulates the jaw bone, keeping it strong and healthy. Without a tooth, the jaw bone does not get stimulated in that area and weakens over time. This may cause nearby teeth to shift into the empty spot or cause facial features to sag. Dental implants recreate the entire structure of a natural tooth, including the root, and provide the proper stimulation to keep the jaw bone healthy.

Types of Dental Implants in Gresham, OR

  • Single Implants. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth.
  • Immediate Implants. Your surgeon can place an implant post on the same day as a tooth extraction, reducing the number of appointments needed to replace the missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges. Dental implants can be inserted to support a bridge where multiple teeth are missing beside each other. This prevents the need to grind down your healthy teeth to support the bridge.
  • DIEM® Full-Arch Restoration. Several dental implant posts are inserted to support a fixed denture in one or both arches, resulting in a complete and fully functioning smile.

Dental Implant Surgery

To assess the condition of your mouth and facial bones, we will take detailed 3D scans during your first visit, as well as discuss your options for anesthesia.

In many cases, patients have already lost the tooth that they will be replacing with an implant. If the tooth is failing, your oral surgeon will remove the tooth from your mouth, usually during the same procedure that the implant is placed. After an appropriate healing time, the dental implant will integrate with the jaw, creating a stable anchor for the abutment and crown. Once fully healed, your dentist will attach the final crown, completing your tooth restoration.

Dental Implant Cost & Value

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.

Removable dentures and bridges are cheaper upfront, but they do not keep the jaw bone healthy or prevent bone atrophy. They must be replaced every few years and cleaned using special rinses. Dental implants, however, remain in your mouth at all times and are cleaned with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits. They protect your oral health for many years to come by fusing with the jaw bone and providing stimulation, unlike removable tooth replacement options.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Patients who wear removable dentures often find that they are cumbersome and require a lot of maintenance. Dentures typically must be cleaned using special products, and if you have removable dentures or partials, you must take your teeth out when eating or brushing. This can make it uncomfortable to eat around others, and the cost of replacing dentures over the years can add up.

Dental implants are an incredible replacement for dentures because they fuse to the jaw bone, just like tooth roots, and restore functionality to your smile. We can place several dental implants that support a fixed denture through full-arch restoration. Call us to learn more about denture replacement in Gresham, OR, and how our oral surgeons can help.

Types of Anesthesia

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

Reviews From Our Dental Implant Patients

Michael got a dental implant
Michael Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"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."

"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."

"Hi, my name is Chelsea from Gresham, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons to see Dr. Lieblick to have my wisdom teeth extracted, and then for a dental implant. Dr. Lieblick was awesome. He made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. He’s very calming when he’s explaining things to patients. He assured me, and it was great! The staff is very friendly. They took good care of me. I felt like it was professional throughout the experience. We went through everything as far as what to expect for surgery, so I was prepared. My procedure went very well—better than I expected. Recovery was pretty minimal. From start to finish, it was a great experience, and I was very happy with the outcome. If you want the best care and treatment, you should come to Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. "

"My name’s Lisa, and I’m from Vancouver, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons to have an extraction and an implant. Everyone at Beacon Oral Surgeons was very professional, but very friendly. My procedure was amazing. It was so fast. I felt like I was silly to have worried so much. Dr. Rehrer was very personable and very friendly and very good at helping you relax. The implant made my whole mouth more stable and strong to bite. I would say dental implants are one of the best things ever. I’d tell anybody that this is a great place to come, and they’ll really take care of you. I would recommend Dr. Rehrer without any reservations. Wonderful."

"My name is Joan, I’m from Vancouver, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons for an extraction and implant. As soon as I walked in the door, the girls at the front desk knew that I was nervous, but they put me at ease right away. Dr. Rehrer is funny, so he puts you at ease also. He explains what he’s doing, and the next thing you know, he’s done. My procedure went very smoothly. No complications, everything was good. If anybody needed an extraction, implants, wisdom teeth extracted, I would most definitely recommend Beacon."

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants or bridges better?

Dental implants are long-term and keep the jaw bone healthy, while traditional bridges sit on top of the bony ridge in the mouth and require healthy teeth to be ground down to support it. The investment to replace missing teeth with dental implants is ideal for both your smile, confidence, and future health.

Do dental implants hurt?

We make your surgery as comfortable as possible by offering many anesthesia and sedation options. Simple extractions or implant placements may only require local anesthesia, while more complex procedures may require IV sedation so that you rest during the procedure and wake up when it is over.

Do dental implants feel real?

The implant post fuses to the jaw bone, creating a permanent addition to your smile. It will feel just like a natural tooth, and the crown is designed to match the shape and color of your other teeth.

Does food get stuck under implants?

Like any other tooth, food can get trapped under a dental implant. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily to keep your teeth clean and clear of debris.
