The dentist in San Jose, Dr. Aida Galan believes that a good smile is a secret to one’s confidence.
We understand that missing teeth can cause a lack of confidence and insecurity to speak in front of others. One of the major reasons behind tooth loss is unhealthy gums. Unhealthy gums are likely to be the result of bacterial accumulation, plague, or tartar around the teeth. In severe cases, it might even lead to inflammatory diseases. Dental implants are a great solution to restore the lost tooth that can have lasting effects on proper care.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is implanted inside the jawbone where the teeth are missing. This will provide a facility to place an artificial tooth or a set of artificial teeth that would appear like natural ones. The implant is generally made up of Titanium that is looks almost like a screw. It is a metal stud that will be inserted into the jawbone. The crown will later be inserted into this stud that will be the replaced tooth. It is attached to the metal stud with the help of abutment. The dentist in San Jose, Dr. Aida Galan, provides patients with dental implants successfully in her practice.
