Improving Your Health And Appearance With Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation is primarily used by Dr. Gleave to strengthen your smile. He uses bone grafting to accomplish this. Bone grafting involves using actual bone or a bone-like material to benefit your smile in a variety of ways, including:

  • The growth of new bone in your jaw, which enhances your oral health and overall health
  • Strengthening your jaw so you can receive dental implants, which allow you to smile more confidently and comfortably chew any foods you want
  • Improving the appearance of your jawline

Providing Ultimate Comfort During Your Procedure

Many people fear visiting the dentist due to dental anxiety. Some are even afraid to come in for a simple cleaning, and we completely understand why. That’s why our team makes sure each and every patient feels welcomed and fully relaxed while they’re with us.

In addition to comfortable operatories equipped with TVs, we offer safe dental sedation options to ensure you feel zero stress or discomfort. These options include:

  • Inhaled sedation to ease any tension you’re experiencing
  • Oral sedation, which puts you in a drowsier, fully soothed state
  • IV sedation to allow you to sleep peacefully during your entire procedure

Call 801-747-8531 if you have any questions or are ready to schedule your consultation with Dr. Gleave. We can also be contacted through our simple online form.

Dr. Gleave has received advanced training from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and the Misch Implant Institute, among others, and is highly qualified to perform this oral surgery procedure. He is ready to provide the stronger smile you need.
