Ridge Augmentation Bone Grafting
Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. These defects may be caused by bone loss from or following the extraction of a tooth, periodontal disease, wearing dentures, developmental defects, injury or trauma. Not only do these deformities cause problems in placing dental implants, but they can also cause unattractive indentations in the jawline near implant restorations. These indentations may be difficult to clean and maintain.
