Ridge augmentation is used by Dr. Li to shape the space left by missing teeth after extraction and to help ensure the bone structure beneath the gums does not resorb. This procedure is often used to increase the size of your jawbone for implant therapy.
What To Expect
When a single tooth or multiple teeth are lost without replacement, the shape of your jawbone along the alveolar ridge often changes over time and gets thinner. By performing a ridge augmentation, Dr. Li is able to reshape your bone structure in preparation for implants or to provide better stability for your dentures.
