Periodontist and Dental Implant Specialist
Aesthetic Ridge Augmentation

Sometimes after an extraction, a sunken spot or concave appearance will develop in your gum line. This looks unsightly and can also jeopardize the appearance of a bridge that goes over the area. Grafting material can be inserted under the gum to fill out this depression.

Ridge augmentation can also be used to build up an area of bone so that a dental implant can be placed.

Procedure: The periodontist administers a local anesthetic and gently opens the area. He then fills the sunken area with grafting material.
