The loss of teeth can have a negative impact on both your appearance and your health. In order to preserve both, you need to find a solution that restores dental anatomy altogether. At Galan Dental, our dentist and her highly-trained staff offer dental implants in San Jose for patients who need to replace their teeth after extractions, trauma, or gum disease.
If you need to replace your teeth with dental implants, schedule an appointment with Dr. Aida Galan today!
Preparation for Implants
We use a 3D imager for planning, as well as CT scans and x-rays that give us an accurate idea of your current oral health. Patients with periodontal disease will need to be treated before implants are placed. The loss of teeth leads to accelerated resorption in the jawbone; we perform bone grafting and ridge augmentation procedures in our office to address these concerns. Should a sinus lift be necessary, we can refer you to a specialist for this preparatory treatment.
The process of implant placement and restoration generally takes a few months to complete. Before they are restored, your implants will need adequate time to integrate with the jawbone and surrounding gum tissue. Ultimately, both the uniformity and long-term health of your smile will be preserved.
Restoration Options in San Jose
We offer a variety of restoration options that will allow you to chew and smile with confidence. Our restorations are designed with your aesthetics in mind, crafted with porcelain which resembles healthy enamel. Our restoration options, which are produced at a trusted local lab, include:
- Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal(PFM) Crowns
- Implant-Supported Bridges
- Dentures Supported by As Few as Four Implants
When fused to metal, porcelain crowns offer a combination of strength and beauty, as well as convenience in the case that replacement is necessary. With effective restorations in place, you will no longer have to worry about compromised facial aesthetics or digestion issues associated with improper chewing.
Caring for Your New Teeth
Once your new teeth are in place you will be able to resume normal chewing function and smile with confidence. While porcelain restorations are highly stain resistant, you should maintain consistent oral health habits so that you can preserve the state of your surrounding teeth and gum tissue. Brushing twice a day and flossing will help ensure not only your oral health but your overall well-being.
