Ridge Preservation

Preserve Your Appearance After Tooth Loss

Without the tooth root to stimulate it, the surrounding jaw bone will often begin to deteriorate shortly following the loss of a tooth. If there is significant bone loss, it may be impossible to place dental implants and may become more expensive, invasive, and time consuming to replace the lost bone.

Benefits of ridge preservation include:

  • Preserves bone tissue after the loss of a tooth
  • Prevents the collapsing of the bone and soft tissue in the sockets
  • Minimally invasive with minimal discomfort
  • Prepares the site for future placement of a dental implant or other tooth replacement, reducing the need for additional grafting
  • Maintains the esthetics of the ridge, especially for the front of the mouth
  • Preserves a natural looking smile
