If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are considered the most long-lasting and effective solution to replace your missing teeth. But not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants. Below you will find the basic information on dental implant candidacy. However, the best way to find out if dental implant procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with your Vacaville implant dentist by calling (707) 301-4432. Ideal dental implant candidates must:
Dental implants are small artificial biocompatible titanium posts that Dr. Bosler surgically embeds within the jawbone and gum tissues where missing tooth or teeth had once been. Porcelain dental crowns that have been customized to match the color of your natural teeth and contour of your face are placed on top of the implants. They function as if they were your natural teeth.
Your Vacaville implant dentist, Dr. Bruce Bosler, and his team performs all of the procedures for dental implants - from surgically embedding the dental implants to creating and placing the dental crowns. Dr. Bosler is an award-winning dentist with over 30 years of experience in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
There are several steps in dental implant procedures. The initial step involves a dental implant consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you. The next step is discussing dental implant procedures and planning your treatment. You will then be prepared and scheduled for oral surgery in which the dental implants will be placed. This is followed by the healing and recovery period of up to six months, during which time the dental implants fuse with your actual mouth structures. The final step will be the placement of the dental crowns to fully restore your mouth function and healthy smile.
This varies from patient to patient. Dental implants procedures generally take up to several months from beginning to end, from consultation to oral surgery and placement of crowns and will vary from patient to patient. Enough time is given to ensure the dental implants are properly fused with the jawbone and gum tissue.
Dental implants are proven effective. They provide secure, stable and strong roots for dental crown restorations and function like natural teeth. They look great and last a lifetime compared to removable dental restorations. Dental implants prevent tooth misalignment, bone loss and gum recession.
