The logo features a series of soft lines representing the threads of a dental implant, symbolic of the industry. Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed into the jaw bones and serve as root replacements for missing teeth. A crown is then screwed into the implant, typically done by a restorative dentist.
Dr. Pikos and his partners have office locations in Palm Harbor, Trinity and Spring Hill since 1983. He has personally trained more than 2300 clinicians from all 50 states and 32 countries since 1990 at his Palm Harbor-based Institute.
In addition, he has performed thousands of surgical procedures including more than 13,000 dental implants. He is an innovator and has introduced various techniques in advancing dental implantology over the years.
With the new dental implant procedures shown to provide advances over the more commonly accepted bridges and false teeth, Dr. Pikos devotes his attention to implant reconstruction in order to give people with missing teeth better quality of life. Research has shown people with missing teeth suffer from emotional, psychological and health damage while dental implants return the ability to chew and give people a reason to smile and show their teeth. When people lose teeth, they often decline into eating soft food. In addition, nutrition is often compromised.
“Implants allow our patients to eat their food more efficiently, thus improving both their quality of life and their self image.” For information, contact: Alison Thiede 727-781-0491 or Barry Carroll 727.742.6778.
