Bone Grafting/Ridge Augmentation

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth shrinks. This often leaves a condition in which there is not enough bone for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implant without increasing the amount of bone needed.

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where patients need it. This gives us the opportunity to place implants in ideal positions, and it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.
