Renewed Smiles Every Day
What is a dental implant?
Dental Implants are screws that are designed to replace the roots of missing teeth. Made of titanium, which has the unique ability to fuse with bone, they are just as strong as natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime. A natural-looking crown tops off the implant and provides a lifetime of eating, laughing and talking without restriction.
Do dental implants hurt?
No! The area is completely numb throughout the surgery, and any post-op soreness is usually controlled adequately with over-the-counter medications.
Dentures and Bone Loss
In addition to providing a better fit, function and feel, dental implants are also a better option than dentures and bridges because they keep the jawbone healthy. Without regular stimulation, the jawbone rapidly deteriorates. Dental implants provide the stimulation that is needed for the jawbone to remain healthy.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Eat and chew anything
- Protect the jaw
- Look and feel just like natural teeth
- Can last a lifetime
- Are permanent (they don’t slip or fall out)
- and more…
Dental Implants Cost
It’s true that dental implants cost more upfront than dentures and bridges. However, it’s important to keep in mind that while dentures and bridges require regular replacement and maintenance, dental implants do not. So while the upfront cost is more, the gap in cost lessens over time. In addition to that, dental implants are a great investment in your health as they allow for a wide, varied diet and protect the jawbone for life.
Full Arch Replacements
For patients who are missing many teeth, we offer full arch replacements. During this amazing and popular procedure, we fix a permanent denture to just four implants that are placed in the jaw. You get to go home the same day as surgery with fully functioning teeth!

Patient Review by David W
I wanted to thank you for your prompt response to my emergency phone call the Friday evening before last. I could not get ahold of my dentist and I was in a lot of pain. Thank you for your immediate call back and for prescribing the antibiotic, etc. You are the ultimate professional and such a beautiful human being. The root canal with Dr. Welk and the crown with Dr. Jia went smoothly and I am in good shape as I walk the beach this weekend at Canon Beach. It is a luxury-- to receive such wonderful care from you and your colleagues.

Dear Dr. Geisler and PJ, KD, Aurora and Sarah, At age 75, and with multiple surgeries under my belt, I am surprised to be writing my first thank you note for a surgical procedure. I thought the ice cream was the best idea ever and then came the lovely bouquet of flowers! ALMOST makes me wish that I needed more surgery with you! Thank you for all the TLC and the positive experience. I do appreciate all the effort!
