Our Service

At Washington Periodontics, we understand that every patient is different, and we will tailor our approach to meet your individual needs. We offer a wide range of services to treat periodontal disease and other conditions.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are a restorative procedure used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They are made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the body, and they are inserted directly into the jawbone. Over time, they fuse with the bone to create a secure foundation for dental restoration. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or a full arch of teeth.
Dr. Karapetian is one of the premier implant dentists in Northern Virginia. She has extensive experience in implant dentistry and specializes in All-on-4 implants, a unique procedure that allows us to restore a full arch of upper and/or lower teeth in the same day.
Frenectomy?
A frenectomy is a procedure used to treat tongue-tie or lip tie. Both are common conditions that can cause infants difficulty breastfeeding, speaking, and eating. While tongue-ties and lip-ties are not life-threatening, they can cause significant difficulties for infants, children, and even adults.
Frenectomies are fairly simple procedures that can be performed right here in our office. The procedure involves snipping the tissue that is preventing the tongue or lip from moving freely. Frenectomies are safe and have a high success rate. After the frenulum is removed, the tongue can move freely and function properly.

Implant-Supported Dentures

For many people, dentures are a necessary solution to the problem of tooth loss. However, traditional dentures can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, slipping out of place and causing irritation.

If you've been considering dentures but have been told you have too much bone loss for traditional dental implants, you may be a perfect candidate for implant-supported dentures. Unlike traditional dental implants, which require a certain amount of bone to anchor them in place, implant-supported dentures use a series of small titanium posts to provide a secure and stable foundation. This means that denture wearers of all ages can enjoy the benefits of a strong and healthy bite without having to undergo bone grafts or other bone enhancement procedures. 

By anchoring the denture to one or more implants, implant-supported dentures provide a more stable fit and significantly reduce the risk of slippage. In addition, they can help to preserve the bone structure in the jaw, preventing further tooth loss.

Bone and Soft Tissue Grafting

If you've lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease or for other reasons, it's not just the look of your smile that is in jeopardy. In addition to the aesthetic impact, tooth loss can also lead to changes in the structure of the jawbone and the surrounding soft tissues.

As a result, patients may require bone or soft tissue grafting in order to restore their mouth to its previous form. Bone grafting procedures involve transplanted bone material being used to fill in areas of bone loss. Soft tissue grafting involves transplanting soft tissue from one area of the mouth to another in order to rebuild lost tissue.

You may need bone or soft tissue grafting before you can have dental implants or other tooth-replacement options. Both types of grafting procedures can be complex and delicate, but they are safe options that offer patients the chance to once again have a healthy and functioning mouth.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to raise the sinus floor and create more bone for dental implants. The sinus lift procedure is often necessary when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw for dental implants. Sinus lifts are also sometimes needed when the sinuses are too close to the jaw for dental implants to be placed.

You may need a sinus lift if you need dental implants but have inadequate bone density, low positioning of the sinus, or an enlarged sinus cavity. A sinus lift is a common and safe procedure that can be performed right here in our office.
