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.

Lenea Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"My name is Lenea, and I work for Dr. Dennis Macnab in The Dalles, Oregon. So, I have had such a fantastic experience with them on a professional level that my confidence was high that they would treat my family the best possible way, as well as myself. We proceeded forward with the implants—they went fantastic—and then about a year later, I was eating on an olive pit and had an emergency when a tooth fractured vertically and was nonrestorable. Dr. Lieblick’s office got me in the next day because I was traveling to San Francisco for my 25th wedding anniversary the following day. He was able to extract the tooth and place the implant immediately. It was great, and I felt great all through my trip, had no adverse side effects. I think it's a fantastic practice, and we’re lucky to have them in The Dalles."

Tara Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

"My name is Tara. I live in Vancouver, Washington. I’m a patient of Dr. Rehrer’s. I needed three surgical implants and a bone graft. My teeth were shifting, and I needed to replace those teeth that were missing. I had my first surgical implant and a bone graft. I was sedated for that. The surgery went well. Before I knew it, I woke up. They sent me home on my way. The very next day, I never really even needed any pain medication. I took Ibuprofen for swelling, but other than that, I healed very nicely and quickly. The second time around, I had two more surgical implants. Same thing, but I was not sedated the second time. I chose to stay awake. Easy surgery, probably done in about an hour. Same thing – went home, no pain medication really needed the next day, healed up very nicely. I like Dr. Rehrer. His personality, his staff is very nice, he’s very good at what he does, very efficient, and I could say he’s fast, too. He definitely knows what he’s doing. He’s in and out and takes care of you very well."

"My name’s Greg, I’m from Yacolt, Washington, and I came to see Dr. Rehrer for a dental implant. The office here is very calm and soothing. Dr. Rehrer and his staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Rehrer made me feel more at ease because it’s just his body language, his demeanor, his choice of words. My procedure went very well. I’m glad I got it done and every time I brush my teeth, I think of how pleased I was that I got it done. For my friends and family from the Camas Vancouver area, I recommend Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons."

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."

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

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.
