At Dentistry By Design in Richardson, Texas, Dr. Brad Tiner works closely with patients to explain the choices available and determine which tooth replacement solution is best for their situation.

Dental implants replace the root of your missing tooth. The posts are placed into the jawbone and fuse together with it during a process known as osseointegration. Over time, the implant becomes a part of the permanent support structure of the mouth.
Dental implants provide patients with a wide variety of benefits. Some of the most notable include:
