At Quince Orchard Dental Specialists, we believe that a healthy mouth translates to a healthy life. Our practice centers around the provision of high quality, professional and personalized dental services from our friendly, competent dentists. Whether you’re a child, teenager or an adult, you need strong, healthy teeth to chew your food, speak and smile. We are here to take care of your best feature, your teeth, whether natural or synthetic.
Periodontics is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of problems that affect the gums and other supporting tissues of the teeth, and the placement of dental implants. Our qualified and experienced periodontist and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. One of the methods that we use to get you the healthy mouth you deserve is hard tissue grafting.
Hard tissue grafting, which is commonly called bone grafting, is a procedure in which natural or synthetic bone is used to replace lost bone and stimulate bone growth. Most dental bone grafting procedures are done to restore your bone to its previous form following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. Bone grafting may also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction.
Once a successful bone graft surgery has been completed, you’ll have to wait for several months while the grafted bone creates enough new, strong bone to make sure that your dental implant is going to be both stable and secure. However, if the graft is minor then it may be possible to do the dental implants at the same time but this is decided on a case-by-case basis. Once we can be sure that bone is strong and stable, the dental implant procedure can go on. Bone grafting has become extremely common, especially among older persons who want to have their teeth back.
The aim of our periodontic practice is to optimize the health and function of not just your teeth but the area surrounding your teeth, i.e. your jaw and gums. Our periodontist and our highly trained dental team are dedicated to ensuring that you have the best periodontal care in the most comfortable setting. Through the use of advanced and appropriate dental technology, we guarantee the highest level of periodontal treatment and diagnostics, to produce the finest, most stable results. We encourage you to come in to our office to find out how we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
