Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth and restore a beautiful smile. Dr. Felipe Galvan of Galvan Dental Care is an expert at restorative dental care in the Danville and Vallejo, California communities. He can design a customized treatment plan just for you to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are made of titanium. Dr. Galvan surgically places implants into the upper or lower jawbone. Then, he attaches natural-looking teeth to the implants to effectively enhance or restore your smile.
Implants can be used as a replacement for missing teeth or can serve as a permanent solution for attaching a removable denture. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. Because of the implants’ strength, they can often last more than 20 years.
Dental implants can serve various purposes that aren't solely cosmetic.
While implants can increase your confidence through a restored and beautiful smile, the metal appliance can also help with chewing, facial tissues, speech, and digestion. Furthermore, an implant can resolve problems associated with missing teeth.
First, he evaluates your mouth by taking X-rays and impressions (molds) to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant.
If you’re a suitable candidate, Dr. Galvan performs a procedure while the mouth is numb where the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal in place.
After your mouth has healed, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to your mouth. Dr. Galvan makes sure that the teeth appear natural, resemble your other teeth, and are comfortable in your mouth.
Even with 19 years of experience, Dr. Galvan still employs the same techniques honed from his years of schooling because they’re 100% reliable.
Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will help your dental implants to have the longest life and most aesthetically pleasing wear and tear. Often, Dr. Galvan will suggest a softer toothbrush or a low-abrasive, tartar-control toothpaste.
