Dental implants make a dramatic difference.
Dental implants in Coral Gables: Dental implants are the natural-looking replacement solution to one or more missing teeth. Since implants are permanently anchored into the jawbone, this "fixed" cosmetic dentistry solution offered by Coral Gables's Nibaldo Morales, D.M.D. allows for better chewing than removable dentures. We're not kidding when we say that dental implants are the most natural-looking way to replace missing teeth. The jawbone actually forms a chemical and mechanical bond with the implant and grows right into the implanted device! However, only patients with healthy oral tissues and mostly in-tact jawbones are eligible for dental implants. If you aren't a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Morales will tell you how else he can transform your smile! These images show the dramatic impact dental implants can make on nearly any smile, even right here in Coral Gables.

Dental Crowns: Don't hide your smile because of old fillings
Dental Crowns in Coral Gables from Dr. Morales: Dr. Nibaldo Morales's dental crowns services offer a chance to completely restore a cracked or broken tooth--sometimes in danger of cracking down to the root if left unattended-- or a decayed tooth that can no longer hold a filling. Crowns not only look natural, but they feel and function like natural teeth. Because a crown fit by Dr. Morales sits so snugly on the base of your gum line, it won't bother you at all. In fact, crowns, or caps made of metal or porcelain that completely cover and protect what remains of the natural tooth, are an extreme improvement when dealing with problematic teeth. If you want to know if crowns are the cosmetic dentistry aesthetic makeover for you, just make an appointment with Coral Gables's Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist by calling (855) 814-6933 or filling out the online form to meet with Dr. Nibaldo Morales. You may also be a candidate for dental bridges, another "fixed" dentistry solution to replacing one or more missing teeth that, like crowns, offer greater freedom than removable appliances or partial dentures.

There's no faster, easier way to correct dental damage such as chips and decay than with dental bonding. And at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gables, we're skilled at perfecting your smile's cosmetic flaws - such as discoloration and gaps - with bonding as well. Tooth bonding covers the flaw with a thin layer of a durable, tooth-colored material that hardens to a strong finish, allowing us to sculpt a perfect tooth for you!

What are Dental Implants?
If you're missing one or more teeth, Nibaldo Morales, D.M.D., of Coral Gables can use dental implants to help restore your flawless smile. A dental implant consists of a small piece of metal which is surgically implanted in the jawbone, essentially forming a replacement for the root of a tooth. As the tissue heals over the next two to six months, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant, creating a perfectly stable structure. After the patient has healed, Dr. Morales uses the implant to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures - recreating your perfect smile. For more information about dental implants as a natural replacement for missing teeth, call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933.
How Do I Find the Right Dental Implant Dentist?
When considering dental implants, it's important that you select a knowledgeable, experienced dentist, as well as one with whom you feel comfortable. Dr. Morales and the professional team at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gableshave the experience to help you feel confident and the "chair-side manner" that will help you feel comfortable throughout the process. Implant treatment consists of two components: a surgical phase and a restorative phase. Traditionally, an oral surgeon or a periodontist performed the surgical component, while a general dentist or prosthodontist performed the restorative component. However, as implant dentistry has become more sophisticated, a dentist like Dr. Morales, who specializes in restorative dentistry, conducts the entire procedure. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the same qualified dentist for the entire procedure? Call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933 for more information about dental implants or to make an appointment with Dr. Morales.
Dental Implant Technology
If you've one of those in the Coral Gables area who has never had a dental implant before, you may wonder about the technology behind this new technique. The fact is that dental implant technology has been around for decades; some of our patients at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist have had dental implants for more than 40 years. Hundreds of thousands of dental implants have been inserted, including many in the Coral Gables area, with success rates of better than 90 percent. All other metal implants in the body—including hips and knees—are the result of dental implant technology. Call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933for more information about dental implants or to make an appointment with Dr. Morales.
The Single Tooth Solution
Though dental implants are a great option for restoring multiple missing teeth, it's also a perfect solution if you're missing only one tooth. In that case, Coral Gables's Dr. Morales can implant a device in the jawbone surrounding the missing tooth which serves as a replacement for a tooth root and an individual crown. This unique solution is referred to as a single-tooth implant crown. Once in place, the implant crown looks, feels, and functions like your natural tooth. It's cleaned and flossed just like your other teeth, and unlike bridges or other restorations, you don't need special tools to clean around your new tooth. You will need to practice effective oral hygiene, however, and the friendly staff at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist will be happy to talk to you about caring for your mouth. For more information about dental implants as a replacement for a single tooth—or to make an appointment with Dr. Morales—call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
What is the implant process like?
At Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gables, our dedicated staff begins with a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical and dental history, and Dr. Morales conducts a full exam of the mouth and area surrounding the missing tooth, including x-rays. Once the exam is complete, Dr. Morales talks with the patient and makes recommendations for a comprehensive treatment plan. After answering questions and receiving input from the patient, the process begins as implants are surgically placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia. The amount of healing time is different for each patient and depends on variables such as the quality and quantity of bone, as well as the type of implant placed. When Dr. Morales determines that the patient has healed adequately, he will use the implant to support a crown, bridge, or denture—completing the process.
Are there different types of dental implants?
The American Dental Association accepts two types of dental implants: the endosteal and the subperiosteal. Most dental implants placed today are endosteal root form fixtures (similar to a man-made tooth root), though Dr. Morales will assess your unique needs. One factor that he will take into consideration in selecting the right type for you is whether your jawbone can adequately support the implant. This can be determined through an exam. For more information about the types of dental implants and which one may be best for you, call (855) 814-6933 today for an appointment with Dr. Morales in Coral Gables.
How many dental implants will I need, Dr. Morales?
Dental implants are ideal for patients who need one or more teeth replaced, but the exact number of implants will be determined by Dr. Morales during the initial exam and included in the treatment plan. Typically, however, one implant is placed for each tooth that will be replaced. Some of the factors that go into the decision about the number of implants include the quality and quantity of the patient's bone and the existing anatomy of the bone. Financial considerations are also a factor for some patients. But because we believe that all of our patients in the Coral Gables area should have the smile they've dreamed of, at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist, we're committed to offering payment plans that work with your budget. Our goal at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist is a completely successful procedure, which includes placing enough implants to secure the restorations needed for a healthy, whole smile. It's a waste of time and money to have an implant fail due to an inadequate number of implants being placed to support the teeth. Dr. Morales and the friendly, experienced team at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist will develop a plan that takes into account your individual needs and resources. For more information about dental implants or to make an appointment with Dr. Morales, call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933.

A Gum Disease Exam Can Prevent Joint Replacement Infections
If you're planning to have joint replacement surgery, you need to consult one final medical professional: Dr. Nibaldo Morales in Coral Gables. A thorough dental examination to detect the presence of tooth and gum infection is a critical step in the pre-operative plan. Because it doesn't receive much attention, many people in the Coral Gables area may not know that gum affects 80 percent of the adult population. This infection slowly progresses over the months and years and is often detected only when it shows up in its advanced stage. Left untreated, common periodontal disease can destroy the bones that support your teeth—and can lead to post-operative infection. At Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist we know that dental patients typically don't experience any discomfort until the advanced stage of periodontal disease, so it's no wonder that most people are unaware that they're affected. Bacteria from this bone-degenerating disease have been attributed to possible infection in people who've had joint replacements. A quick and easy visit to Dr. Morales can mean the difference between a smooth joint replacement recovery and one marked by infection. Candidates for joint replacements who haven't visited Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in over a year should consider a thorough dental evaluation of their teeth and gums before surgery. If an infection is detected, Dr. Morales will recommend that you complete treatment prior to your surgery. Treatment of gum infection and any tooth abscesses may take from two weeks to two months. So don't delay. If you even suspect that you may have periodontal disease - or if you're considering joint replacement surgery - call Dr. Morales today at (855) 814-6933.
Gingivitis: a common problem with an easy solution
You've undoubtedly seen toothpaste commercials talking about the dreaded gingivitis, but you probably assumed it would never affect you. The truth is that gingivitis is the most common periodontal disease in the county, affecting 90 percent of the population. Yes, it's even a problem right here in Coral Gables. Gingivitis is an infection of the gums caused by bacteria that form plaque. When you visit Dr. Nibaldo Morales on a regular basis, the professional team at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist is able to remove the small amounts of plaque that build up between visits. But when left to accumulate, plaque increases, and harmful bacteria grows. The problem begins when these bacteria release toxins that result in inflammation of the gum tissue. Dr. Morales will tell you that, if not properly treated, gingivitis may progress to periodontitis, a periodontal disease in which you may eventually lose teeth. The best solution is to prevent gingivitis by making regular appointments with the friendly, experienced staff at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gables. If it strikes, however, Dr. Morales can effectively treat this disease before it causes damage. To set up an appointment, call (855) 814-6933 today.
Pregnancy and gum disease
In decades past, an old wives' tale decreed that women lost a tooth for every baby. Today, we know that a healthy pregnancy and healthy teeth and gums are not only possible, but likely - especially with help from Dr. Nibaldo Morales, the gum disease dentist that Coral Gables trusts. At Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gables we know that pregnancy is a time of change for a woman, and her mouth is no exception. Unfortunately, many of these changes make an expectant mother more susceptible to dental disease. Hormonal changes affect more than your moods; they also may leave the gums more vulnerable to disease. Pregnant women also tend to eat smaller, more frequent meals, exposing their teeth and gums to sugars and acids more often. And if heartburn hits in the middle of the night, few women want to drag themselves out of bed to brush their teeth after chewing on an antacid. Pregnant women in the Coral Gables area are encouraged to schedule a dental evaluation with Dr. Morales and his friendly staff. The team at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist is experienced in caring for teeth and gums during this special time and will be happy to advise you about the special oral hygiene needs of expectant mothers. Taking care of your teeth is just another way you can also take care of your growing baby. Please call (855) 814-6933 today to schedule a complete dental examination with Dr. Morales.
The facts about gum disease
It's not a pretty picture. According to the American Dental Association, three-quarters of all adults will be affected by some form of gum disease. In the Coral Gables area, you can turn to Dr. Nibaldo Morales of Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist as your resource in the prevention and treatment of gum disease. Gum disease, technically referred to as "periodontal disease, " is a bacterial infection in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. There are several stages and categories. The first stage is called "gingivitis" and is characterized by gum tissue that is red, puffy, and bleeds easily during brushing and flossing. The next several categories include advancing stages of periodontal disease. In these stages, the infection can destroy the bone supporting the teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. But when you visit Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist regularly, we can help you avoid gum disease and its destructive results. And if you're diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Morales and his experienced team can affectively treat the disease, using the latest technologies to return your mouth to health. Call (855) 814-6933 today to make an appointment at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist in Coral Gables.
The Danger of Undetected Gum Disease
Undetected Gum Disease Can Be Dangerous: We've all heard that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but when it comes to gum disease, prevention may be worth even more. After all, wouldn't you rather prevent a crisis than manage one? And believe it or not, gum disease is at crisis levels, even here in Coral Gables. It doesn't make the nightly news, but more than 50 percent of people in the Coral Gables area don't visit a dentist regularly. Even worse, of that 50 percent of the population, 80 percent have some degree of gum or bone disease. Could you be among those statistics? The answer is Dr. Nibaldo Morales and the professional dental staff at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist. They know how important good oral health is, and they have the experience to help detect and, if necessary, treat gum disease. Seeing Dr. Morales on a regular schedule is the best ounce of prevention around. Call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933 to find out how we can help you prevent and treat gum disease. Your teeth and gums will thank you!
Periodontal gum disease: a silent enemy
If you visit your dentist regularly, you may think you're not at risk for periodontal disease. Unfortunately, you can't be sure your exam is complete enough to detect this disease unless you count on the experience and training of Dr. Nibaldo Morales in Coral Gables. Visual oral examination by itself - even by a dental professional - can't always identify periodontal disease until it's reached an advanced stage. It could be present for years with no signs or symptoms until it's too late for a quick fix. A specific exam performed by Dr. Morales, however, can alert you to gum disease in the early stages. This exam includes measuring the crevice between the tooth and gum with a periodontal probe. The procedure is simple, fast, and painless, but millions of people have never had it done. Dr. Morales ensures that his patients in the Coral Gables area have access to this diagnostic tool. If you're experiencing the signs of periodontal disease - bleeding gums, redness of gum tissue, swelling of the gums around your teeth, bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth - it's especially important to call Dr. Morales and his friendly staff in Coral Gables. Early detection can prevent the irreversible damage that can be caused by periodontal disease. The adverse affects of periodontal gum disease don't have to happen to you. Call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist at (855) 814-6933 to schedule an exam today.
Plaque, gum disease, and tooth loss
Plaque doesn't sound like such a bad thing. And when it's kept under control with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits, it's relatively harmless. But when this soft, sticky layer of bacteria builds up, it can have serious consequences for your teeth. Dr. Nibaldo Morales in Coral Gablescan remove plaque before it leads to gum disease. Avoiding the dentist can allow dental problems to compound, leading to tooth loss. At Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist we know that a missing tooth is not only unattractive, but it can cause structural problems in your mouth. Some patients in the Coral Gables area assume that as long as they're still able to eat without their missing tooth, that there's no problem. Dr. Morales helps patients understand that just one missing tooth can lead to other oral difficulties. The remaining teeth may begin to drift into the empty space, causing a change in way you bite or chew. It also forces the remaining teeth to carry an additional load, and you may begin to experience pain when you're eating - or even when you aren't. Our goal at Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist is to help you enjoy the best oral health possible, whether that's simply removing plaque during a regular dental appointment or more advanced solutions such as replacing one or more missing teeth. Count on Dr. Morales in the Coral Gables area to keep your teeth and gums healthy. For more information or to make an appointment, call Coral Gables Cosmetic Dentist today at (855) 814-6933.
