Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation is a dental procedure that helps restore the natural contour of your jaw after tooth loss or trauma. This treatment is essential for maintaining the structure of your mouth and creating a solid foundation for dental implants or other restorative solutions. If you are experiencing changes in your jaw’s shape or want to prepare for dental implants, ridge augmentation can help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

What Ridge Augmentation Can Address

Ridge augmentation is designed to address various dental concerns, such as:

  • Jawbone deterioration after tooth extraction
  • Defects or abnormalities in the jawbone
  • Insufficient bone for dental implants
  • Uneven gum line or jaw shape

By rebuilding the jawbone, ridge augmentation enhances both the function and appearance of your smile.

The Ridge Augmentation Process

The process of ridge augmentation begins with a consultation, where our dentists will assess your needs and determine the best approach for your treatment. During the procedure, bone or bone-like material is added to the ridge of the jaw, restoring its natural shape and size. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the augmentation, but most patients can resume normal activities soon after the procedure.

Benefits of Ridge Augmentation

Choosing ridge augmentation offers several benefits, including:

  • Restored jawbone structure and shape
  • Improved stability for dental implants
  • Enhanced aesthetics and symmetry
  • Prevention of further bone loss
