Rebuild Your Jaw With a Ridge Rehabilitation

A ridge modification is a common surgical procedure that offers you a number of benefits:

  • Supports Dental Implants – Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. However, they require sufficient bone density for stability. Ridge augmentation provides the bone structure needed to support dental implants. This ensures a long-lasting restoration.
  • Enhances Bone Structure – Ridge augmentation restores the natural contour and strength of the jaw. By adding bone grafting material, the procedure promotes bone growth and fills in areas of bone loss.
  • Improves Aesthetics – If your jawbone has experienced significant bone loss, it affects how you look. Ridge rebuilding addresses this issue by restoring the natural shape and volume of the jaw. This results in an improved facial appearance and a more youthful smile.
  • Improves Oral Function – A stronger jawbone helps improve oral function. Restoring the natural contour of the jaw allows for better chewing and speaking abilities. This enhances overall oral health and quality of life.
  • Preserves Adjacent Teeth – When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone may begin to deteriorate. A jaw augmentation  prevents further bone loss and preserves the health of adjacent teeth. It lessens the risk of nearby teeth shifting or becoming compromised.

Common Questions About Ridge Augmentation
