What Is Bone Grafting?
The strength of your jawbone is important to your total oral health. If your jawbone is weakened from physical trauma or missing teeth, you may need to get a bone graft so your jaw can properly hold both your natural teeth and dental implants. Bone grafting helps to strengthen and build up your jawbone until it's dense enough to support an implant. At Elegant Smiles, bone grafting is used to strengthen your jawbone before dental implant surgery to replace missing or weak teeth. Plan a consultation at our Las Vegas, NV office to learn more about bone graft surgery.
How Does Bone Grafting Work?
Bone graft surgery rebuilds the jaw so it can support a dental implant; however, you have to be willing to commit time to the process. Bone grafting may require several months to complete. As the result, you will have a stronger jawbone that will not only support your dental implant, but also your natural teeth for better overall oral health. Bone grafting is often done in conjunction with a dental extraction. Once the tooth has been removed, the socket is cleaned out to clear debris and infection. The prepared graft will be placed and a “bandage” called a membrane will be placed over it. Over the following three to four months, the graft should heal and integrate with your jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. During this time, it is critical to have a good home oral care routine with brushing and flossing along with any products recommended by our team.
Elegant Smiles Reviews
Everyone is so nice here and I am well taken care of. Today I came in for my six month cleaning and exam. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Huynh. She cleaned my teeth and I was pleased that she took her time. I know not many people enjoy going to the dentist, but I really do. I did have some traumatic dental experiences when I was a child, so in the past I did have fear. At Elegant Smiles, I am relaxed knowing that I am in great hands with both Dr Phan and Dr Huynh. Even when I had a filling on my last appointment, the numbing and procedure did not hurt at all! The staff wants to make sure my comfort is a top priority. I highly recommend Elegant Smiles for all of your dental needs.
I wish I could give this dentistry a million stars. I’ve struggled with anxiety when it comes to pain especially at dentist I’ve only ever had bad experiences. I communicated that because I trusted them and they take such good care of me. They make sure I can’t feel any pain or if I do get anxiety they get me water and accommodate me in any way possible with time, patience, netflix to distract, and the massage feature on the chair. They are such kind people here. The assistants remember anything I’ve ever told them which is crazy because they see thousands! You’re always greeted with a gentle voice and smile at the front. Kayla was amazing at the front desk and now they have someone new just as great. They really do their part in the community to take care of others and doing it as their job. I’m so thankful I have chose them.
One day while searching for a great dental practice in Las Vegas, I discovered Elegant Smiles and loved what I read about the husband and wife dental team as well as the wonderful reviews left by happy clients. I was overjoyed when I found out that they accepted my insurance. 25 years ago I cracked a molar and subsequently chose to receive a dental implant from another specialist. My implant is doing just fine, but I love the experience Dr. Phan has in this area, so I chose him as my dentist. I am one happy patient!!!! I absolutely love this practice!!! All of the staff here, and Dr. Phan are so amazing! I have always been one to get dental cleanings every 3 months because I hate the feeling of tartar buildup. Dr. Phan did my cleaning 6 months ago ( my next one is less than 2 weeks away), and I have not felt bothered with tartar. Fabulous dentist! I’m confident his wife is also an amazing dentist as well. I haven’t met her yet, but am willing to see her if needed. I’m in great hands here, and highly recommend Elegant Smiles for your dental care.
If I could give this place 10 stars I would, I normally don't like the dentist. But I enjoy going to Elegant Smiles, everyone is amazing and attentive. If you are looking for a great dentist, look no further.
I've been going to Elegant Smiles for 4 years. They're always professional and friendly and do a superb job taking care of family's teeth.
