Ridge Augmentation

Are you experiencing a loss of jawbone structure? At Southwest Dentistry, we offer ridge augmentation, a dental procedure designed to restore the natural contour and width of your jawbone. By addressing ridge deficiencies, we can create a solid foundation for dental implant placement and enhance your oral health and aesthetics.

Understanding Ridge Deficiencies

Ridge deficiencies refer to the loss of jawbone structure, which can occur due to tooth loss or bone resorption. If left untreated, ridge deficiencies can lead to a range of consequences, including compromised oral function, facial asymmetry, and difficulties in securing dental implants. Ridge augmentation serves as an effective treatment option to restore your jawbone’s integrity.

The Ridge Augmentation Procedure

Our skilled dental professionals will explain the ridge augmentation procedure and its purpose to you in detail. We utilize various techniques and materials, such as bone grafts and soft tissue grafts, to rebuild the ridge and recreate a natural-looking jawbone contour. Throughout the surgical process, we employ advanced techniques and instruments to ensure successful ridge augmentation. The healing timeline will be discussed, and you can expect personalized care every step of the way.

Benefits of Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation offers a range of benefits, including:

  • Restoring the natural contour and width of your jawbone
