Dental implants come in various shapes and sizes and have different types of surfaces. The actual implant selection will depend on a variety of factors related to your specific treatment needs and the most appropriate one(s) will be used. In selected cases the missing teeth can be immediately replaced with an implant with out wait period thus providing patients with the convenience of never having to have a removable prosthetic. Once an implant has been placed in the jaw, the bone around the implant will need to heal from anywhere from six weeks to four months, depending upon how hard the bone is. When this initial phase of healing is completed, a support post called an abutment will be placed into the implant itself and then a new crown will be placed on top. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

Dr. Nico is the most professional, compassionate and understanding doctor. My real concerns were put at ease by his thoughtful explanations and quick responsive assurances. I highly recommend this practice for any and all oral surgery needs, specifically, Dr. Nico.
I had to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted and I had a positive experience. Dr. Nico is very knowledgeable and his staff helped ease my nervousness for the procedure. I am healing well, and am surprised at how smoothly the whole process went. I most definitely recommend Dr Nico and his staff in Aventura for wisdom teeth extraction!
Excellence is what I experienced previously with Dr. Blum, and last week I had the same great experience with his partner, Dr. Nico. As always, their staff members are the best of the best, and my care could not have been better.
