Prepare for Implants With a Lubbock Ridge Augmentation

When you have dealt with tooth loss for a long time, you often lose bone in your jaw. Replacing your teeth with implants is always a wonderful solution to restore your smile. However, many patients who come to see us for implants don’t have the jawbone volume to support these artificial tooth roots. A ridge augmentation in Lubbock will:

  • Reshape the ridge of your gum and bone to prepare you for implants
  • Strengthen the bone in your jaw for better oral health
  • Restore your smile’s appearance by giving you a more natural outline where teeth were previously missing

Call 806-507-6906 for a consultation. With our special offer, the cost is only $50, including any radiographs needed to properly diagnose you, and a discussion with your dentist. The value of your consultation is up to $500!

Smooth Out Your Jawline for a Stronger Smile

There are many reasons a ridge augmentation procedure is necessary. Among the reasons patients experience bone loss:

  • A serious gum infection that resulted in tooth loss
  • Wearing traditional dentures without the support of implants
  • Having a tooth extracted without a replacement put in afterward
  • Trauma to the mouth

An augmentation procedure will rebuild the bone that’s lost and restore the contours of your jaw to a more natural appearance. This also gives your jaw the necessary strength for dental implants.  Once your mouth has healed from the augmentation, then you’re ready to strengthen your smile with implants. Your options include:

  • All-on-4 Dental Implants – Your dentist places four implants instead of eight in strategic places in your mouth. They support a complete arch of replacement teeth in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both. In some cases, you can receive implants and replacement teeth on the same day.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – No matter how much damage your smile has sustained, your dentist can restore its healthy appearance and function using implants and restorations like dentures.

Our team strives to make you as comfortable as possible, no matter why you’ve come to see us. We have several sedation options and comforting amenities to put you at ease. We also use PRF (Platelet-rich fibrin), which speeds up the healing process after your procedure.

Common Questions About Ridge Augmentation

What is ridge augmentation?

We perform this procedure if your jaw isn’t wide enough to support dental implants. It involves adding bone graft material to a small ridge along the top of your upper or lower jaw. It may be necessary if you’ve lost height and width in your jaw after losing teeth. In addition to preparing you for implant placement, it improves your appearance.

How much does ridge augmentation cost?

The cost will vary, depending on the specific type of procedure and the materials used to replace bone and/or encourage new growth. In many cases, at least some of the cost may be covered by dental insurance and/or health insurance. That’s because the procedure may be required to restore your oral health and function.

Does ridge augmentation hurt?

No. We will completely numb your mouth with local anesthesia prior to your augmentation procedure. In addition, you have your choice of three kinds of dental sedation to keep you relaxed and pain-free throughout your treatment. During recovery, you may experience some minor swelling and discomfort, which is typically easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
