Dental Implants Before and After Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

What Miami area patients can expect before, during, and after their dental implants are placed

Dental implants are the "gold standard" in tooth replacement. Not only can these restorations be used in replacing single teeth but they can be utilized in anchoring dental bridges or stabilizing full dentures. There are many reasons patients may need to have dental implants placed, and Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. are the ones to help! This father and son team of dental professionals works closely with their patients to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles.

Dental implants are used for the replacement of missing teeth. Missing teeth can cause a number of issues with the smile, including reduced chewing, biting, and speaking efficiency. It can also be unattractive and cause patients to feel self-conscious about the way they look to others when they laugh, talk, or smile. This is why we may suggest dental implants for restoration.

Patients are often interested in learning about what happens before, during, and after the placement of dental implants. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. break down the process here below:


Patients need to undergo an initial evaluation to determine if they are able to have dental implants placed. Implants require enough bone to hold the implant firmly into the jaw. If there is not sufficient bone available, procedures such as bone grafting may be considered before the implants can be placed. Otherwise, patients may be better suited for bridges or dentures instead.


The placement of the dental implant occurs during a single appointment. Patients are properly sedated and anesthetized for comfort. The dentist will drill into the bone, place the implant, and suture the gum tissue around it. Patients are given aftercare instructions to facilitate proper healing as well as tips to look for possible infection.


After dental implants are placed, patients need to wait several weeks for the process of osseointegration to occur. During this process, the bone grows around the implant, giving it a firm foundation. Then, patients will use crowns, bridges, or dentures to restore the implant and finish their restorative procedure.
