Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentations are done to restore normal ridge contours in areas where teeth have been removed.  These sites are usually planned for tooth replacement with ovate or egg shaped pontics as part of a bridge or in sites planned for dental implants.  Ridge augmentations may include the use of connective tissue or the use of bone grafts.
