Do you have a jaw deformity that was caused by a tooth extraction or tooth loss Maybe you suffered an injury to your jaw and now don’t know how to fix the resulting deformity. If this is you, a ridge augmentation from Rod Gleave, DMD can help. This procedure will help rebuild bone mass and correct your appearance so that you can smile again with confidence and renewed oral health.

What Is a Ridge Augmentation?

When you have a deformity in your upper or lower dental arch, a ridge augmentation may be used to correct it. Dr. Gleave will use a bone grafting technique to rebuild the area and return it to a healthier state that looks much more attractive. He will use either natural bone from another area of your mouth or a bone-like material to stimulate new bone growth in the area. The procedure will provide a more natural-looking profile. It can also prepare patients for dental implant placement.

Why Would I Need a Ridge Augmentation?

Natural Deformity – Some people are born with a natural deformity. This is nothing you could have been prepared for.

Injury – Dental injury or trauma that affects your jawbone is another reason you may need this procedure.

Tooth Extraction – Tooth extractions can sometimes cause bone deterioration, which results in the deformity. A ridge augmentation can correct this damage and rebuild your bone structure.
