You may benefit from ridge modification if you suffer from deformities in the upper and lower jaw caused by developmental issues, periodontal disease, injury, trauma, and more. These deformities can make it challenging to place dental implants due to insufficient bones. You may also notice an indentation in the appearance of your face from the gaps in your smile left by missing teeth. To remedy this issue, we perform ridge modification surgery and lift the gum to expose the defect. After we identify the bone defect, we will use a bone graft to fill the space to regenerate the bone or serve as a functional bone.
