Cutler Bay Dental Implants

Dental implants are the standard of care for missing teeth.  Dr. Gonzalez is proud to offer its patients missing teeth replacement and complete smile reconstructions. 

Although there are many technological advances in dentistry, manyv people still suffer with tooth loss.   This is common due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or some type of dental injury.   For many years the only treatment available for missing teeth were bridges and dentures.  But now, dental implants can help restore missing teeth and are now considered the standard of care. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are substitution for tooth roots.  Implants provide a solid foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable teeth that are fabricated to match your natural teeth. 

There are many advantages to dental implants in Cutler Bay:


Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth.  They are designed to fuse with your bone, becoming a permanent tooth replacement.

 Improved speech

Because of poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can move within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words.  Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might move or shift.

Improved comfort

Because implants become part of you, implants remove the discomfort of removable dentures.

Easier eating

Shifting dentures can make chewing difficult.  Dental implants act like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.

Improved self-esteem

Dental implants can help you regain your smile and oral functionality providing you with self-confidence.


Dental implants are very durable and will last for many years.  With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.


Dental implants eliminate the uncomfortable inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.  So, throw away your denture adhesive for a new and improved oral functionality experience.

What are dental implants…

Dental implant is a small threaded post made of titanium that serves as an alternative for the root of the tooth.  On top of the implant is an abutment.  An abutment is used to attach the restoration piece (permanent crown) with the implant. 

Dental crowns are fabricated to your specific specifications for a perfect fit.
