Practicing dentistry for more than 25 years, Dr. Tim Tiralosi is committed to surpassing the standards of excellence by continually learning better techniques and innovative dental procedures. Dr. Tiralosi believes that a personal approach, with more one-on-one time with patients is better.
“My philosophy is not to run a high-volume office with a lot of rooms going. My patients see me. They get a lot of my time–not just an assistant’s time.”
Dr. Tiralosi offers a full menu of dental procedures, with an emphasis on what he terms Smile Makeovers, which include fixing the size and color of teeth. He provides patients with mockups of what their smiles could look like, allowing them to make an educated decision on cosmetic dentistry.
“It’s very rewarding to me when I can make a difference in someone’s life and not just their teeth. I have had patients so self-conscious about their smile that they hide it and also their emotions. It is great to see the transformation in that patient’s confidence, happiness, and to see their lives have been changed.”

During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.
Your dentist can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a ceramic cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root (we do not use titanium, only ceramic). After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable your dentist to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.
Most patients with adequate bone mass can have implants, although it varies among individuals. Typically an x-ray and CT-scan are performed to determine if you have enough bone to place the implant, as well as to verify the size and kind of implant that should be placed.
