What is Ridge Augmentation?
Following a tooth extraction, we may need to reshape the gums and bone that have been affected by the tooth loss. This helps recreate a natural look and contour for a beautiful smile.
What is Ridge Preservation?
Ridge preservation helps to preserve as much of the jaw bone as possible following the loss of a tooth by replacing the bone with a grafting material to support the surrounding tissues. This helps us prevent rapid bone loss that could affect tooth replacement later on, and maintains bone structure so your smile retains its natural look and beauty.
