North Hollywood area dentist offers bone and gum tissue grafts
When patients need to address imperfections in their smiles, they may have to deal with their gum tissue. Patients in the North Hollywood area often visit with Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat and the team of A-Dental Center to learn about treatment options such as bone grafting and gum grafting. Both are treatments readily available through our state-of-the-art practice.
Bone grafting is often done to help in preparing the smile for the placement of dental implants, which require significant bone for successful placement. When patients have been missing teeth for a while, or have experienced periodontal disease, they may be dealing with a lack of sufficient bone for dental implants successfully. This is when Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat may suggest bone grafting. However, these same patients may be dealing with a loss of gum tissue as well. Periodontal disease is one reason why there may be insufficient tissue. Gum tissue grafts can be done to rebuild the gum tissue in the area and help improve the aesthetics of the smile.
Gum tissue grafts are also done to help patients who do not enough gum tissue to provide an aesthetic smile. While some patients may need to have gum tissue removed because of a “gummy smile,” others may need to have tissue added for cosmetic purposes. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat can help with grafting.
Gum grafting is done with anesthetics and sedation to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure, and can be done quickly in our dental facility without referring patients out to a specialist.
