Get an Improved Jaw With Ridge Augmentation Surgery

Many people who would like to get dental implants and enjoy a mouth full of strong teeth again have lost tissue and bone on their jaw ridge. For these patients, a jaw augmentation provides a good solution. An augmentation may also be done after a tooth is removed to help preserve the shape of the jaw ridge.

To perform a ridge augmentation, Dr. Bickler will access the jawbone by lifting the tissue off of it. Then he will insert a bone-like material where your tooth is missing. He may also place tissue in the area to re-create the natural contour of the ridge. Over the course of a few months, new bone will grow in and you’ll soon be ready to get your implants.

We’ll refer you to a trusted oral surgeon who will place your implants. They will chemically fuse with the jawbone is a process called osseointegration. When this process is complete, you can get your new teeth. You’ll smile confidently and eat comfortably once again. Plus, the implants will stimulate your jawbone so you won’t have to worry about bone loss anymore.
