Patient Information

 

 

When you lose one or more teeth, a small indention in your gums and jawbone will form where the tooth used to be. This happens because the jawbone recedes when it no longer is holding a tooth in place. This indentation can sometimes cause a replacement tooth to look too long compared to the adjacent teeth.

Ridge augmentation is a procedure that recaptures the natural contour of your gums and jaw. A new tooth can then be created that is natural looking and easy-to-clean.
