Ridge augmentation is a form of bone grafting that recreates the natural contour of the gums and jawbone after experiencing tooth and bone loss. After losing a tooth, the natural ridge of the jawbone may deteriorate, leaving an unattractive indentation in the jawbone. The loss of the dental structure affects more than just the aesthetics of the face. It can also make replacing the lost tooth more difficult.
Our dentists can improve the density of the ridge through bone grafting, thus improving the appearance of the facial structure while improving the odds of a successful dental implant procedure. Dr. Rafaat or Dr. Emelee can augment the ridge by placing bone grafts into the indentations of the bone, where tooth loss has occurred.
Ridge augmentation can be performed immediately after extracting a tooth, which can eliminate the need for an additional procedure later. This treatment can also be performed later, to prepare for the placement of a dental implant. Let our team help you to create a smile that you feel confident in.
