Unparalleled Dental Implants Care
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth as they provide natural function and feeling. With modern aesthetic materials, Dr. White can recreate a youthful, vibrant smile that is sure to give you a new lease on life.
Dental implants are preferable to full dentures because they look more natural and are more permanent. This means that slipping, popping and adhesives are a thing of the past for the dental implant patient.

Among the many reasons that Dr. White is your best choice for implant dentistry in Nashville:
- Dr. White’s practice and care are uniquely focused on bringing harmony to oral muscles and tissue.
- Dr. White is one of the few neuromuscular dentists in the area.
- Prior to his extensive Las Vegas Institute training and teaching commitments, Dr. White had already completed his dental education in addition to an elective medical residency — an extremely rare credential for dentists.
Particularly when it comes to dental implant patients, Dr. White has the benefit of being a “super generalist” who specializes in treating complex dental issues. Even with his advanced training in medical-based dentistry procedures and technology, Dr. White remains committed to finding the least invasive techniques possible to restore each patient’s natural dental health and beauty.
The Dental Implant Process
The first step in the dental implant placement or replacement process is for Dr. White to conduct a thorough dental and medical evaluation that will likely include X-rays. “I don’t want to miss any pathology,” Dr. White says.
This neuromuscular evaluation is also an opportunity for Dr. White to talk with his dental implant patients about exactly what they can expect from the procedure.
The reason that dental implants are so effective at mirroring the look and function of real teeth is that an implant is actually two pieces of equipment. The first essential part is the artificial root that is placed directly in the jawbone. This is the actual dental implant. Once the implant has sufficiently healed, it will be affixed with a crown, bridge, or denture.
The main benefit of dental implants is that this technique boasts unparalleled precision, predictability and functionality. It is now common for dental implant patients to go many years, even decades, before needing adjustment or replacement.
