Implant Dentist [http://www.eonclinics.com/about-us/our-doctors.html] are the most highly effective and permanent solution for missing teeth and look, feel and function like a natural tooth. The implants used at Eon Clinics are constructed with a base of clinically pure titanium that's exceptionally strong and long-lasting.
They bond tightly to the bone like a natural tooth root, which stops bone resorption and helps maintain facial structure and jaw line integrity. At Eon Clinics, dental implants are used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even for a full mouth restoration. Using the All-on-4 technique, Dr. Pappas and the oral surgeon can replace a full set of teeth in just one day, in most cases without bone grafting and in just one day.
