Gum and Bone Grafting

When gum disease is severe and cannot be treated by non-surgical procedures, your dentist will probably advise you to undergo gum and bone grafting. It is a regenerative dental procedure that can be performed if the gums and bone supporting your teeth have already been destroyed. Gum and bone grafting is a minor surgical procedure that we offer here in our office in Napa, CA.

Gum grafting is performed to treat and prevent gum disease. It also restores gum tissues to a healthy condition for it to adequately protect your teeth. Bone grafting, on the other hand, restores your jaw and bones to their original condition. Losing teeth and bone can cause your face to sag, causing you to look older. It can also complement certain treatments to restore the function of your teeth. The good thing is that because of modern technology, gums and bones can be build up again using materials from your own body or from other natural and/or synthetic material.

The Procedure

The entire procedure will require several visits to our office, with several weeks interval from each.

  • During your first visit, your dentist will begin by administering local anesthesia to the area where the problem is located. When your gums are totally numb, they will cut open your gum to gain access to your tooth root and the surrounding bone. After cleaning the roots, the dentist will work on repairing the bone by attaching a grafting material. They will then cover the area and stitch back your gums. Over the next few months, the bone graft material attached to your bone will be encouraged to grow, filling in the lost bone and soft tissues.
  • Your dentist will schedule you for a check up within sevevn to ten days after the procedure to check your recovery. You will also have follow-up checkups in the next few months.
  • After a successful gum and bone graft, your dentist will discuss your options to effectively restore the health and condition of your gums and teeth.

I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
