Dental Implants Miami, FL

Helping Correct Missing or Broken Teeth

At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we understand that, for many people, smiling is a problem because they feel they have unattractive teeth or loose dentures. Perhaps they need a tooth replacement and are very self-conscious about it.

A bigger problem, though, is that their hesitance to smile reflects a lack of self-confidence. When people are embarrassed by their teeth, they feel the need to cover them up, and their self-confidence takes a hit. Our Miami dentist has everything you need to ensure that your smile is one you can be proud of.

What are Dental Implants?

Rendering of a Dental ImplantDental implants can help restore a healthy, natural smile. When it comes to replacing one or more teeth, a dental implant is typically the preferred treatment. These implants function as a replacement for the roots of teeth. Dental implants can be used to secure crowns and bridge work as well as dentures.

Dental Implant Material

Simply put, a dental implant is composed of bio-compatible posts that replace the roots of a missing tooth. These implants are physically and biologically designed to attach to the jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural-looking replacement tooth.

Dental implants are also composed of titanium which makes them both lightweight and strong. One of the most important things about implants is that they are accepted by the body. They are completely safe and effective, so dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth and improve one’s smile. When properly cared for, dental implants are permanent.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

For patients worried about the cost of dental implants, rest assured that at Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we offer affordable dental implants. Our founder, Dr. Julio Hernandez has spent several months researching and negotiating with dental implant companies to lower the costs of the dental implant parts.

Additionally, we use state-of-the-art 3D computer technology to plan the entire implant procedure. This allows us to perform the implant procedure quickly and predictably. The material savings and time savings are passed down to you, the patient, to make the cost of dental implants affordable.

Although we provide affordable dental implants in Miami, some patients may require additional procedures. If you need any procedures in addition to placing the implants, this will increase the overall cost of the procedure.

Other factors affecting the cost of dental implants:

  • Extractions: if you need teeth removed before the implants are placed
  • The health of adjacent teeth: if there is gum disease or infections of adjacent teeth, these would have to be addressed prior to implant placement
  • Amount of bone available: there must be enough height and width of bone to place an implant. When there is not enough bone available, additional bone grafting would be required.
  • The proximity of sinus: when the sinus is too close to where the implants need to be placed, the sinus needs to be pushed away and bone grafted, this is called a sinus lift procedure
  • Number of implants: when several teeth are missing, multiple implants would need to be replaced. The number of implants would be determined during your consultation

At Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics, we offer 0% interest-free financing for up to 12 months. Take advantage of these low payment plans to help restore your smile.

Dental Implant Procedure

The placement of dental implants involves two separate procedures. The first place the implants in the jaw bone. The implants will be placed beneath the surface of the gums. The implants then bond with the jaw bone and this process takes anywhere from three to six months.

After the implants have bonded with the jaw bone, there is a second procedure. At this stage, our doctor will uncover the implants and attach posts to them. These posts are visible above the gum line and will then anchor the new replacement teeth. Dr. Julio and his team will work with a premier dental lab in the US to customize a porcelain crown that will then be cemented to the posts, so they cannot be seen.

The entire process takes from six to eight months.

Different Types of Dental Implants

Diagram of Implants Being Placed Implant dentures, or implant supported dentures, are much more secure than traditional dentures which attach to the gums and bone and tend to move or slip around easily. To support a denture, multiple implants are placed at the same time. After some initial healing time, a new denture is made that attaches to the implants.

The new denture can be made one of two ways:

  • Removable: denture snaps on to implants but can be removed for regular cleanings
  • Fixed-Removable: denture is permanently fixed to the implants where the patient does not have to remove it but, if necessary, can be removed by Dr. Julio Hernandez and his team.

Implant dentures have several advantages:

  • More stable
  • More comfortable
  • Easier to eat with
  • Easier to speak with
  • Feel more secure
  • Don’t have clicking sounds

Benefits of Dental Implants

Woman Smiling and Showing Her Dental Implants With dental implants, one may feel a new lease on life. Implants can help people smile again! They look and feel real, and function just the same as natural teeth.

People who are missing teeth can receive implants and go back to eating regularly. Those who felt their smiles were unattractive can start smiling for the camera!

The advantages of having a dental implant put in place include the fact that they can replace teeth without affecting any adjacent teeth and they can replace a missing tooth while helping maintain the bone levels of the mouth. In many cases, the procedure can be paid for with a payment plan.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants have been around for many years. There have been many long-term studies showing the success rate of implants over time. Factors that affected the long-term stability of implants have been addressed and today’s research gives us the information necessary to place implants very predictably. Implants today can last a lifetime. There are few procedures in medicine today that can confidently say can last a lifetime. If you divide the cost of replacing a missing tooth or teeth with dental implants over your lifetime, you will realize that the costs of these procedures are very low. A facelift can cost several thousands of dollars and will likely need to be repeated. Dental implants could cost a fraction of that and last a lifetime.

Caring for Your Dental Implants

Dental implants require routine maintenance just like your natural teeth. Whether you have one implant or several supporting a denture, your home care and regular maintenance visits to the dentist are critical to ensuring the long-term stability of your implants.

Here are our top seven dental implant care instructions:

  • No Smoking, No Straws: Smoking should be avoided because it removes the oxygen in the area and lowers the body’s ability to heal the site. Straws can’t be used for three days. Any type of suction immediately following the treatment can loosen the blood clot and/or sutures.
  • Gentle Rinsing: Using the prescribed chlorhexidine rinse is recommended for a limited time. Avoid alcohol-containing mouthwashes during the healing period
  • Ultra-Soft Brush: Very gentle brushing of the implant area can begin 24 hours after surgery using a very soft brush and gentle pressure.
  • Discomfort: Some discomfort is expected after dental implant procedures. Please follow the recommended dosage instructions for the prescribed medications. Contact our office if pain or discomfort is persistent.
  • Swelling: Some swelling may occur lasting 3-5 days. Use medications as prescribed and cold compresses to reduce inflammation. Contact us if swelling persists after five days.
  • Diet: In the first 24 hours, your diet should be limited to liquid or soft foods. Avoid chewing on the surgical site for the first few days.
  • Implant Follow up: Patients should see our doctor one week, one month, and three months after treatment until the dental implants become stable. Please contact our office at any time during the healing phase if symptoms arise.
