Ridge Modification in Carmel

Ridge modification is a dental procedure performed to correct irregularities in the jawbone where teeth are missing or were removed. These deformities can lead to inadequate bone and gum tissue, which can prevent the successful placement of dental implants or result in the unsightly appearance of dental prosthetics.

By undergoing ridge modification, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of successful implant placement and improved facial aesthetics, leading to a boost in your confidence in social interactions and daily activities.

The Implications of Ridge Deformities

Ridge deformities can occur as a result of periodontal disease, trauma, developmental defects, or wearing dentures for a long time. Besides causing aesthetic issues, these deformities can also make dental implant placement challenging due to a lack of sufficient bone structure.

Ridge Modification Process and Benefits

At Peak Periodontal and Dental Implant Specialists, the process of ridge modification involves lifting the gum away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge, followed by securing the gum back into place.

The benefits of ridge modification include:
● Improved ability to place dental implants
● Enhanced facial appearance
● Increased confidence when speaking or smiling
