Dental Implants in Milwaukie and Portland, OR

Life-changing Restoration Solutions

At Beacon Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we are experts in dental implant procedures and consultations at our office in Milwaukie, OR. Dental implants are a life-changing solution for patients with missing teeth. When you have a tooth that is missing or needs to be removed, an implant can replace your tooth permanently and securely, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile as if you never lost a tooth. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, your surgeon can use them to support a single crown or a multi-tooth prosthesis. Our oral surgeons, Dr. Russell Lieblick and Dr. Brandon Rehrer, are experts at restoring teeth through dental implants.

Learn About What Dental Implants Are

American Society of Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD)

Our surgeons have been selected as members of ASIRD, which means that they meet higher standards of dental implant surgery. To gain membership, an oral surgeon or dentist must demonstrate that they have more experience placing dental implants and forming treatment plans that take a collaborative, patient-centered approach to your care. This also means that your surgeon and your dentist know how to work together as a team to give you optimal results. Contact our office to learn more about ASIRD qualifications.

Benefits of Dental Implants in Milwaukie, OR

Types of Dental Implants

  • Single Dental Implants. A complete replacement for a single missing tooth.
  • Immediate Implants. Your surgeon can place an implant post on the same day as a tooth extraction procedure, reducing the number of appointments needed to replace the missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge. Dental implants are positioned to support a bridge with multiple missing teeth. This option eliminates the need to grind down healthy teeth to fit the bridge.
  • DIEM® Full-Arch Restoration. 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 process is a joint effort between you, your oral surgeon, and your dentist. First, you will receive a consultation appointment where you may receive 3D scans and imaging to assess your condition and prevent any surprises during your procedure. Your surgeon will be able to plan your procedure and create advanced surgical guides using these high-quality images. If you have any questions, this consultation appointment is a good opportunity to discuss your procedure with your surgeon and get your questions answered.

Your next appointment will be the placement procedure. Once you arrive, your surgeon will prepare you for the procedure and administer your agreed-upon anesthesia option. The posts will be placed directly into the bone that supports your teeth. Once the placement is complete, you will rest until your anesthesia wears off, and your designated driver will bring you home to recover.

Sometimes your replacement teeth are pre-loaded onto your implants, but in other cases patients must undergo a healing period before their permanent teeth are attached to their implants. If this is the case, you will have your crowns attached by your dentist after your surgical sites have healed. Some patients don’t want to go without teeth during the recovery period, so your dentist can make temporary teeth for you to use while you wait for your permanent crowns to be ready. Patients typically find that their new teeth are well worth the wait.

Cost and Value of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the only long term solution for missing teeth that improve your oral health by preventing jaw bone loss. They can last a lifetime with proper care, making them much more cost effective than removable dentures.

Being able to enjoy foods freely without the worry or hassle of removing artificial teeth makes them the ideal solution for natural feel and function. The cost of your dental implant will be determined by the number of implants you need, your choice of anesthesia, any additional procedures required, and your dental insurance. We will discuss all of this with you and answer any questions you might have at your initial appointment.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Dental implants serve as an ideal solution for patients looking to replace their dentures. It can be embarrassing to remove your teeth when eating, and it can be inconvenient when dentures slip or cause oral sores. With dental implants, we can affix a fixed denture to multiple implant posts for a secure, healthy, fully functioning smile.

This treatment, known as full-arch restoration, is a long-lasting alternative to traditional dentures. You will be able to enjoy eating and speak with total confidence again without worrying about discomfort, extra products, or jaw bone loss.

"Hi, My name is Mo. I’m from Vancouver, Washington. I came to see Dr. Rehrer for a dental implant and a biopsy. I loved coming to this office. Just the physical appearance, the bright colors—it’s just a lovely place to come to. The staff here is exceptional. Every single one of them are personable, welcoming, [and] knowledgeable, because I always have a lot of questions about anything I’m going to do. Dr. Rehrer is a great oral surgeon. He is very personable and [will] answer all your questions and make you feel totally comfortable. The overall experience was very positive, and very successful. For all my friends and family in Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, I would highly recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons."

"My name is Paula. I work for Dr. Tinkle. I’ve been with him for five years. Working as a professional in the dental field, I have a daughter that I had to have permanent teeth, wisdom teeth taken out for orthodontics and so forth, and that’s how I got to meet the staff. Eventually, I ended up needing a tooth extracted and ended up going with an implant per Dr. Tinkle’s recommendation. So I came for my consult. The staff was great, gave me the whole treatment plan, what I would be looking at, and then turned around and came back and had the dental implant placed. The staff was very professional. I went back to work that same day, turned around, Dr. Tinkle put a temporary on for me, had no swelling, had no pain, and everything was great! I’ve been happy with it ever since. I would do another one if I had to. It feels like a normal tooth, functions as a normal tooth, and I’m very happy! I would come back again. Beacon Oral Surgeons are the best!"

"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."

Cath had a dental implant in Gresham OR
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."

Eileen Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"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."

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dental implants look natural?

Yes, implants are a natural-looking complete tooth replacement that feels and functions just like a normal tooth. The custom crown is molded, sanded, and shaped to perfectly match the shape of the tooth it is replacing.

Can you get a temporary tooth while waiting for an implant?

While your surgical site is healing your oral surgeon can provide a temporary implant to wear until your permanent replacement is ready to be attached.

Can I get a dental implant years after extraction?

The number of years between your extraction does not determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. Bone loss is the preventing factor in candidacy; the health and density of the jaw bone are the most important factors when deciding if a patient is right for dental implants.

How painful is getting a dental implant?

We want all of our patients to be as comfortable as possible during all of the procedures we perform. We offer many different anesthesia and sedation options. All of these will be discussed with you during your initial appointment and confirmed before the day of your procedure.
