As an experienced and internationally recognized oral implantologist, Dr. Ordonez is committed to helping his patients in Miami smile with renewed confidence. A dental implant consists of a surgical fixing, made of biocompatible materials, which acts as an artificial tooth root. While traditional bridges and dentures provide functional and cosmetically pleasing options for tooth replacement, implants offer several advantages. Dental implants make it possible to replace a single missing tooth without having to prepare any of the adjacent teeth, and are the only prosthodontic solution that helps to preserve dental bone. Typically, when a tooth is lost or extracted, the bone surrounding the edentulous area begins to deteriorate, and continues to deteriorate over time. Implants provide the same stimulation as that of the roots of your natural teeth to preserve healthy bone mass in the jaw, which is crucial to maintaining the contours of your face. Implants are quite versatile and can be restored with individual crowns, fixed bridges and removable dentures, depending on your individual needs.

Our dentist and office team are committed to providing compassionate care and making each dental visit as stress-free as possible. For patients who struggle with dental anxiety, we offer nitrous oxide, oral and IV sedation. Using these safe and controlled sedation techniques, our dentist can help you feel deeply relaxed throughout treatment, and can make a lengthy procedure feel like it’s over in just minutes.

As your oral health and overall health are inextricably linked, we provide treatment that encompasses a broad spectrum of needs. Sleep apnea is a prevalent condition, with serious, potentially life-threatening consequences if left untreated. The most common form of this condition is obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the muscles at the back of your throat collapse during sleep, making it difficult to breathe. We can treat sleep apnea using a customized oral appliance, which keeps the jaw open in a forward position, making it easier for air to pass through. Our dentist can also provide a customized oral device to help treat bruxism and TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder makes it painful and difficult to move your jaw. A night guard keeps the teeth slightly separated to prevent teeth grinding and alleviate pressure on the joints in your jaw.
