Learn how dental implants at our Coral Gables, FL, office can give you back your smile and improve your quality of life.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw. Implants act as artificial tooth roots to support restorations like dentures, dental crowns, and dental bridges to replace missing teeth. They provide much-needed stimulation to the jawbone to stop and prevent the bone deterioration that can occur with missing teeth.
Take a Look at How Dental Implants Work
Enjoy Numerous Benefits
With implant-supported dentures, you do not need to rely on messy denture adhesive for your denture to remain in place. The denture is secured to the implants for superior stability and no risk of slippage when you eat or speak.
Even a single missing tooth can make things like eating and speaking difficult and even painful. Dental implants fill in the gap to restore your oral function.
Paired with dental implants, a custom restoration looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth. In addition to looking completely natural, the results can take years off your appearance.
Improved Oral Health
Missing teeth can cause other oral health issues, such as jawbone deterioration, shifting teeth, and even further tooth loss. Dental implants are the only restorative treatment that can truly prevent these issues.
Dental Implant Restorations
A dental crown paired with a dental implant is an excellent option to replace a single tooth.
A dental bridge paired with dental implants can fill in the gap for patients missing several consecutive teeth.
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients missing all of their teeth along one or both arches.

"I've been to a number of dentists over the years and have found the best experience at Gables Perfect Smile. Dr. Ospina and her group are very professional and what I like the most is that she is a perfectionist. She will not accept if the crown, implant or veneers are not done to her satisfaction. I've been going to Gables Perfect Smile for all my dental work including cleanings since 2006 and highly recommend the place."

Advanced and Affordable Care
While we do accept PPO insurance, most dental insurance plans do not cover dental implants. However, they may cover other aspects of treatment like your crown, bridge, or denture. We will verify coverage before your treatment begins to maximize your benefits and reduce your out-of-pocket costs.
For those without insurance or to finance costs not covered by insurance, we accept CareCredit® and Alphaeon Credit. This allows patients to break the cost of treatment into flexible monthly payments.

Dental Implant Candidacy
Are in Good Oral Health
Patients must be free of issues like gum disease and tooth decay to ensure a healthy foundation. We offer a range of treatment options to help you qualify for dental implants.
Have a Strong, Dense Jawbone
If you have existing jawbone deterioration, a common side effect of missing teeth, you may need preparatory bone grafting before implant placement. This ensures the implants have sufficient bone material to graft to.
Do Not Use Tobacco
Tobacco use is bad for your health and can increase your risk of implant failure. It is best to permanently stop using all tobacco products before implant placement to help ensure the best results.
