In the wake of the unprecedented COVID19 pandemic and the safety of our staff and patients, Dr. Lentz closed our office temporarily at the end of last week, 20th March, 2020.
Our voicemail has been updated to instruct patients with dental emergencies to follow the prompts to reach Dr. Lentz. This web notice is to inform patients that state and federal mandates recommend we close our office until we can equip ourselves with proper protective equipment. That equipment is not yet available because it is being directed to front line emergency workers in hospitals handling the outbreak. At this time, we are working closely with specialists to treat emergency dental conditions that are resulting in pain, swelling and fever.
State wide - No restorative treatment will be rendered at this time. Just emergency treatment (i.e. root canals and extractions) by our specialists.
Think of Dr. Lentz as a quarterback directing emergency traffic to the proper specialists. Please feel free to call and leave a message for emergency: 678-802-1209. Dr. Lentz will call back as soon as possible to trouble shoot your specific concern. We are monitoring daily, awaiting proper protective equipment orders to arrive, and will update our Lanier Valley Dentistry Family with any changes.
Trefoil™ Implant System
An Affordable, High-Quality Full Arch Teeth Replacement Solution
When serious tooth loss becomes an issue, it’s time to start considering permanent tooth replacement options. The Trefoil™ Concept is the newest and most affordable proven full arch tooth replacement option for the lower jaw available today. Trefoil™, by Nobel Biocare.
For many decades now, Nobel Biocare has been the dental industry’s leader in dental implant driven tooth replacement innovation. They revolutionized the dental industry with the All-on-4® Treatment Concept, which is a system that takes advantage of the existing bone in the jaw and makes the most practical use of it. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept has lowered the price of permanent tooth replacement nationwide, while simultaneously solving for the very common issue of bone loss following tooth loss.
Today, we are proud to present Trefoil™, the next step in permanent, full-arch, tooth replacement. The Trefoil™ system uses only three dental implants to support a full arch prosthesis, which has a dramatically positive effect on cost while allowing for excellent long-term results!
What Is Trefoil™?
Trefoil™ is a full-arch, tooth replacement system that is supported by three dental implants. Trefoil™ incorporates a pre-manufactured framework that is uniquely designed to match the arch of the mandible (lower jaw) and is supported by only three dental implants.
How Trefoil™ Works
What makes the Trefoil™ system unique is that it allows us to be flexible in our application of the adjustable bar that acts as the base for the implant restoration. Being flexible with bar placement allows us to maximize the amount of healthy bone that the implants are placed in, allowing for higher success rates. The key to the Trefoil™ system lies in the adaptive joint attachment system that allows us to connect the prosthesis framework to the dental implants. This guided surgery system and the adaptive joints allow us flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity or precision during the bar and prosthesis placement procedure.
Is Trefoil™ Right For Me?
If you are dealing with significant tooth loss, or are facing it in your future, or you cannot wear a denture in the lower jaw but would like to have fixed teeth, the Trefoil™ system may be a viable option for you. Trefoil™ is designed to fit a wide variety of patient needs and is even more affordable than the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. If you were previously a candidate for the All-on-4® Treatment Concept but turned it down due to cost, or because pre-treatment planning required a bone graft, the Trefoil™ system could be exactly what you have been waiting for!
Fewer Implants Means Fast Recovery
When considering any permanent prosthesis, recovery time is always an important factor. One of the biggest benefits of the Trefoil™ system is recovery time. Since Trefoil™ only uses three dental implants, recovery time is faster.
We look forward to giving you a smile that you deserve!
