Dr. Curry Leavitt, a noted periodontist in Las Vegas, is now happy to welcome new patients for bone grafting procedures. Bone grafting may be necessary in preparation for the placement of dental implants. Dr. Leavitt knows that the strength of the bone is paramount in supporting implants and restoring full function and health to the mouth. This is why he recommends that most of his periodontal patients undergo treatment at his state-of-the-art practice, which is equipped with some of the latest dental technology.

Bone grafting is most often used to restore bone tissue following an extreme case of periodontal disease or tooth loss due to injury and trauma. In the case of periodontal disease, the bacteria that cause gum disease may remain untreated and continue to degrade the jaw bone. This, coupled with a significant lack of stimulation by the missing tooth, results in bone loss that must be addressed in order to restore proper oral health. This is often considered most advantageous while preparing the mouth for dental implants. Any experienced periodontist in Las Vegas understands that grafting can also be used to strengthen the bone and retain or increase the overall health of the mouth.

As a periodontist in Las Vegas, Dr. Leavitt also places dental implants at his practice using the latest technology, including Piezosurgery® and Galileos Cone Beam CT imaging technology. Piezosurgery reduces swelling, bleeding, and discomfort while preserving more of the patient's healthy teeth and bone during bone grafting treatment. CBCT imaging technology allows him to see precise 3D images of each patient’s oral structures before treatment.

There is no reason to live with bone loss or missing teeth. Patients who would like to learn more about implants and bone grafting are invited to contact Dr. Leavitt’s office by calling 702-834-8900 to schedule an appointment.
