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.

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

I was very comfortable throughout the whole procedure. My implants feel great. I had a great experience and I highly recommend Dr. Leiblick."

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.
