Eye Tooth

I recently saw a report about a person’s eyesight being restored via a tooth. Googling it came up with many pertinent stories, but I liked the one from LaughingSquid.com the best:

“The procedure, known as osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis, has two stages. In the first stage, a tooth is removed from the patient, a lens is installed in the tooth, and the assemblage is implanted under the eye socket to allow it to grow blood vessels. The second stage occurs about four months later: The tooth assemblage is removed and implanted into the eye socket, thus restoring vision.” http://laughingsquid.com/blind-man-regains-sight-by-having-his-tooth-implanted-in-his-eye/

I can’t say that I really understand this procedure, but I can say that if you want to see the best dental office in the DC area give us a call
