Missing one or more teeth can be embarrassing and have a negative impact on your quality of life. Everyday tasks like speaking and chewing can be difficult while smiling can be uncomfortable. Missing teeth can also put you at risk of oral health problems, including tooth decay and gum disease. If a missing tooth is stopping you from looking and feeling your best, dental implants can help. Dental implants are the only permanent way to restore your smile after losing a tooth, allowing you to talk, eat and smile with absolute confidence.
Dr. Bruce Bosler has helped countless patients in Vacaville, Solano County and the Bay Area restore their smiles with high-quality dental restorations, including dental implants. Combining the latest dental technology with his specialized training in implant dentistry, Dr. Bosler is able to create strong and long-lasting smiles with dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts that Dr. Bosler surgically places within the jawbone where teeth are missing. These implants function like roots and provide stability and strength for the porcelain dental crowns, which are customized and shaped to match your natural teeth and contour of your face. Once the jaw is fully healed, and the implant has bonded with the surrounding bone, Dr. Bosler can place your custom dental crown to complete the implant procedure.
Implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw or both. Depending on the patient’s needs, implants can be used to support a dental crown, bridge or dentures.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide numerous advantages, including improved comfort and unequaled convenience. Dental implants:

- Preserve the integrity of facial structure by preventing bone loss
- Restore proper chewing function
- Improve your speech
- Eliminate painful gum irritation associated with dentures
- Are more stable and strong compared to dentures
- Eliminate the use of messy adhesives used in dentures
- Are easier to care for than dentures
- Enhance your appearance
- Boost your self-confidence
About the Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure is a multi-step process that requires several visits to Dr. Bosler’s office. While many dental practices offer “dental implants in a day,” Dr. Bosler believes that a carefully planned and executed multi-step treatment plan is critical to the longevity of dental implants. When an implant is embedded into the bone where the missing tooth once was, it prompts the bone to regenerate and fuse with the implant. This biological process is called osseointegration, and it typically takes three to four months to complete. Osseointegration is what allows the implant to stay firmly rooted in the bone for many years. If a dental restoration is attached to the implant before the jaw bone is fully healed or the implant has bonded with the bone, there is an increased risk of the dental implant failing. Once the implant is fully integrated into the jawbone, Dr. Bosler can attach the abutment to the implant to connect the post and the artificial tooth. During your final visit to our office, Dr. Bosler will make any last minute adjustments to the size and color of your restoration so it can seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth.
