Ridge Augmentation

Ridge Augmentation

When you do not replace your missing teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate where your tooth socket one existed. This makes it extremely difficult to get dentures or dental implants later on. You probably did not have the financial means for restorative surgery during your extraction, but you may have the money as of now. Fortunately, we can perform a process known as "ridge augmentation" to restore the bone structure that is required for other restorative procedures such as dental implants. This process involves lifting up the gum above the ridge to expose the defected area of the bone. Then, a bone like substance is used to fill these defected areas. Ridge augmentation greatly improves your mouth's appearance and chance for success with your future implants. With our ridge augmentation, your implants will last for years.
