I went to see Dr Lagos when I had a painful tooth and gum. He pulled a tooth and did a bone transplant. To do this, he had to cut an existing bridge and trim the remaining tooth that had been anchoring that bridge. My regular dentist had previosly told me the outlook for the tooth was "hopeless," and Dr Lagos concurred.
Dr Lagos was responsive, pleasant, and direct. He made it clear what he planned to do, why it was necessary, what the alternatives were, and what it would cost. It was easy to make an appointment, and the office seems to run on time. It is kept very neat.
The work was done quickly, and with no pain. Dr Lagos gave me his personal cell phone . number in case I had any problems.The doctor suggested I wait several months for blood flow to develop in the implanted bone before considering alternative plans. He said most of his patients elected not to have an implant or bridge when they lost a back tooth.
Dr. Lagos' services are not inexpensive, but his prices seem competitive. He is much more expensive than the people who advertise one day service for implants, but those people are jokes.
I have consulted two other periodontists in the desert in the past four years, but I decided to use Dr. Lagos.More
