Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting in Washington, DC

Do you dream of a smile that’s as strong as it is beautiful? For those considering dental implants, bone grafting isn’t just an option—it’s the bedrock upon which your ideal smile is built. As one of the crucial first steps in your dental implant journey, Dr. Marla Yee of Love Dental Studio prescribes bone grafting to ensure your jaw is robust and ready to support your new teeth.

Solidifying the Foundation

People need dental bone grafting for various reasons. From rebuilding a fractured jawbone after trauma to rebalancing areas of atrophy to serving as a preparatory step for dental implant placement, bone grafts might one day be a necessary step in your or a loved one’s dental journey.

The Appointment: Patient-Centric, Comfortable, & Necessary

At Love Dental Studio, we prioritize your well-being and strive to make your experience as stress-free as possible. First, local anesthesia and optional sedation dentistry are carefully administered by our experienced team to ensure your complete comfort and relaxation throughout the procedure.

Then, our highly skilled dentist delicately opens the gum tissue with precision, revealing the underlying bone. Next, Dr. Yee expertly adds bone grafting material, which is chosen based on your unique needs and desired outcome. The graft is meticulously secured in place, using advanced techniques and, if necessary, a surgical mesh to provide additional support.

After the bone graft is successfully placed, the surgical site is carefully sutured using dissolvable or non-dissolvable sutures, depending on your specific case. This ensures proper healing and promotes the integration of the graft with your existing bone, creating a strong and stable foundation for future dental implant placement.

Following the procedure, the bone graft matures over time, gradually integrating with your natural bone and providing a solid and stable foundation for the placement of your future dental implant.

Benefits of Bone Grafting

 The advantages of bone grafting go beyond just creating necessary support. It is a versatile procedure that promotes bone growth and regeneration, helping to restore structural integrity and stability. Additionally, bone grafting can enhance the success of dental implants, improve overall oral health, and provide a solid foundation for prosthetic devices. By stimulating new bone formation, this innovative technique promotes long-term dental health and enhances the aesthetic appearance of the smile.

Enhanced Confidence

With the knowledge that your dental implants have a secure foundation, your self-assurance shines through.
