I just switched my daughter and I to Dr. Swann. When I walked in, Dr. Swann was sitting at the front desk checking me in while his assistant was finishing up with his patient. Also, while i was In the chair being checked/examined by the hygienist, he called and checked my insurance benefits. What dentist, or any other physician for that matter, would do this? Not many I know! He and his assistant work well as a team and are very knowledgable. I was amazed by what his hygienist knew; more than any other hygienist who has cleaned my teeth. He was very fair and honest..someone I would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Swann and his staff are the best. My teeth had gotten really bad at a young age. I bounced from dentist to dentist piecing my mouth togather and never really leaving happy because i had so many other problems. Missing teeth, bad cavaties, bleeding of the gums you name it i had it. Dr Swann was the first person to treat my mouth as 1 whole part of the body. I can now bite and eat normally and have a beautiful smile on a budget that was extremely fair and affordable for me. I highly reccomend them to anyone who cares for their oralhealth. Thanks again Dr.Swann!!
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.
