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.

Types of Anesthesia

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

Byron Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure

Watch Review

"Hi, my name is Byron Valentine. I came to Beacon Oral Surgery on a referral, which I’m truly grateful for. My dentist, Dr. Reflaf, referred me, and I’ve never been happier. I was delighted! When you associate oral surgery with your person, you think about pain, and immediately, that’s what I thought about was pain, but upon arriving, meeting the staff, meeting the oral surgeons, I was greatly impressed. They dispelled any fears I had, they walked me through the process, they told me point by point exactly what was going to happen, and how it was going to affect me in terms of my overall ability to chew, my smile, just my comfort level. I was, like I said, superbly satisfied, very happy. I’m extremely happy I came here, and not to mention, the staff is like a family. I was so taken by the professionalism and just the approach that the ladies that work there took when I walked in the door, and the whole time that I was sitting in the chair, getting ready to undergo the surgery, they made me feel like I wasn’t even in a dentistry office, like we were at a bonfire! The only thing that was missing was the beer and popcorn! I’m impressed. I’m really impressed, and I would tell anybody, if you’ve got to go have oral surgery, go to Beacon."

"My name is Sandra from Vancouver, Washington, and I came to Beacon Oral Surgeons to get two dental implants. When I first came in, everybody was very friendly. I felt very comfortable and just right at home. Dr. Rehrer was very professional. He made me feel relaxed. My procedure was painless, fast, and I had no issues. My recovery was excellent. Now that my implants are fully restored, I feel great. I’m pain-free; my teeth feel natural; I can chew and eat anything that I want to. Absolutely recommend dental implants to anybody that’s considering it. They look natural, they feel natural; I even forget that I’ve had anything done. If anyone in Vancouver or Camas is considering a dental implant, I would definitely recommend Beacon Oral Surgeons."

"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

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.
