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 Sandy W
Dr. Geisler has helped me for a long time and I have total confidence in her. She is a very experienced, skillful surgeon. She takes the time to listen, she communicates so well and her follow up care is always there. Please note: Dr. Geisler researched and identified a problem I had that no other physician saw or could identify (now I am getting help). Also she quickly helped my visiting daughter's serious situation and arranged for a team of physicians to help with her recovery. I have such gratitude for this doctor and her staff. Dr. Geisler is caring, cheerful, has a curious intellect and phenomenal skill. On top of all this, there's easy "by the door parking", and calm, pleasant office, ICE CREAM and the occasional bouquet of flowers. Need I say more!!
