Rebuild Your Jaw for Better Oral Function

Your jawbone’s health and function are affected by numerous factors throughout your life. Gum disease, missing teeth, prolonged use of adhesive-secured dentures, or even a jaw injury can all contribute to jawbone weakening. However, this doesn’t mean you have to give up on the idea of a fully restored smile. A ridge augmentation offers a path to rebuilding your jaw’s strength.

Here is what you can expect:

  • Planning – Your dentist will plan your procedure with advanced technology like 3-D scanning and digital X-rays. This will help them determine areas of your jaw that need restoration and rebuilding.
  • Day of the Procedure –  On the day of the procedure, your dentist will move forward with reshaping the jaw area and adding any necessary bone material. Once the procedure is complete, it will set the stage for successful dental implant placement. Sedation is available if you feel nervous.
  • Healing Period – Over time, the bone material is incorporated into your jaw, strengthening it. It also spurs the development of new bone.
  • Dental Implant Placement – After your recovery period, your dentist can move forward with your implant options. Your dentist can secure a bridge or customized dentures to implants. They will feel and function a lot like natural teeth.
