What is Ridge Augmentation?
Ridge augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can recapture the natural contour of the gums and jaw. When or if you lose a permanent tooth, the resulting effect will be an indentation in the gums and in the jawbone. Once the tooth is gone and no longer being held in place, the jawbone recedes. The indentation that remains looks unnatural. Ridge augmentation can restore the gum to its natural state. Once it is restored a new tooth can be made that is natural looking and is a compliment to your smile
