Compared to dentures and bridges, patients who turn to dental implants to restore their smile discover and healthy teeth. They are the only tooth replacement option that actually helps stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Getting dental implants as soon as possible after losing a tooth helps prevent bone loss at the site.

Tolbert said thanks to the additional one mill of taxpayer support last year, the hospital's finances are "on solid footing" and said there was no more con- cern about MCH dosing. Tolbert said in fact MCH recently issued raises to its employees for the first time in 10 years. "They've definitely earned it" Tolbert said of the raises. "They stayed with the hos- pital when we didn't know if the hospital was going to stay open or not. So they continued to provide good care. They continued to do training. And we're con- tinuing to tweak our staffto make sure that the services that you get when you go there or when your family members go there is abso- lutely second to none" Tolbert said he intends to have foot surgery at MCH as soon as the upcoming hospital renovations are complete either later this year or in early 2019. Tolbert said, "There's a little bit Of showmanship in that, but I want everybody to know that I have faith in it (MCH) as well." Tolbert also promoted the Georgia Heart tax credit program that allows citi- zens to dedicate their state taxes to MCH. Monroe County com- mission chairman Greg Tapley said if all county and Monroe County Schools employees dedicated their state taxes to MCH, it would virtually cover the entire tax increase commis- sioners approved last year to support the hospital.
