All your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn't necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth, they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss.

I have a part idea, but no drawing – can you help?
LCS works with several part design vendors who can translate your idea into a detailed part drawing and a 3D model.
How do you handle confidential drawings?
LCS is often asked to sign confidentiality agreements prior to viewing customer drawings. If you don’t have a form you prefer to use, we can provide a standard one.
Who owns the tool once it is made?
Tools paid for by customers are customer owned assets that LCS stores between runs for our customers. In some cases LCS will amortize the tooling cost into the part price for customers. In these cases until enough parts are shipped to pay off the tool or the customer buys out the tool, it is owned by LCS in the same way a bank owns your car until the loan is paid off. In some cases we will quote no-cost tooling on a project. These tools are owned by LCS.

LCS can run most standardized molds, however if a proprietary insert mold was used it may be difficult or impossible for LCS or any other molder to take over your project without incurring retooling costs.

"I chose the Cedar Clinic for my orthodontic treatment as it was recommended to me by my dentist. The practice was and still is very friendly and as I was a very nervous patient the staff and particularly Sharan Gill, the orthodontist, always very calming and patient with me. I would recommend the Cedar Clinic to anyone – I also had whitening treatment and a wisdom tooth taken out at the practice. Sharan always takes an interest in me. She makes me feel more like a friend than a patient. Keep up the good work."
