I have been going to Dr. Killgore (Orthodontist for Afinia Dental) for my Invisaligns. It only took 7 months for my teeth to be as straight as I have ever seen. During this process, Dr. Killgore noted that my bite is uneven. Today, he took time to solve that problem, too. I can't remember the last time I could actually bite down and have both sides of my teeth touch. For someone who has just learned to live with it, Dr. Killgore actually addressed and solved the problem. I can't begin to tell you how much this means to me (not to mention my health). Five stars to you, Dr. Killgore!!!Angela Strong

I would HIGHLY recommend Afinia dental, particularly Dr. Killgore! Over the years I've had bi-yearly cleanings and x-rays with them. Recently, I had to have 2 crowns and another tooth filled. Everyone in the office made me feel very relaxed and comfortable.Thanks to Dr. Killgore and the rest of his staff for making my dental procedures pleasant!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
