Bone Grafting Restores Your Facial Foundation
Missing teeth can make eating difficult and social activities awkward and embarrassing. The underlying areas of your jaw may eventually deteriorate, simultaneously leading to further tooth loss and making it difficult to replace those missing teeth. Your face can develop a prematurely aged, sunken appearance. At LeCuyer & Amato Dentistry, we offer a proven treatment to repair bone loss and stabilize the area. A transformational restorative procedure, bone grafting enables you to have healthy teeth and bone again, so you can enjoy eating, speaking, laughing, and smiling like you used to—and with greater confidence. Our skill in restoring jawlines can give you back the quality of life you once took for granted. If you’ve suffered bone loss in your jaw, bone grafting is a prerequisite for receiving dental implants. Our three-person team has decades of combined experience and exceptional results in bone grafting, placing dental implants, and performing all related treatments. We’re proud to offer comprehensive cosmetic and restorative dentistry services to you from one convenient Seattle, WA location.
The Dental Bone Graft Procedure and Beyond
Before dental bone graft surgery, we make you comfortable with one of several sedation options. Once you’re relaxed and ready, our team takes a sample of bone material and places it in the area of your jaw where you’ve lost bone. Over time, this bone graft will slowly begin to grow together and fuse with your existing jawbone. Eventually, it will fully replace the section of missing bone. With your jawbone rebuilt, the logical—and best—next step is to get teeth back into place so you can have a full smile with all of its esthetics and functional capacity restored. Dental implant placement and restoration, both of which we do right here in-office, are only possible with a strong, solid jawbone. These will enable you to confidently and comfortably chat with friends, eat your favorite foods, and smile widely. Isn’t that what you’ve been wanting?
