Ridge Augmentation
   
 

Sometimes, when a tooth is lost, the gum and bone where the tooth was shrinks and creates an indention in the gum. This happens because the jawbone isn't holding a tooth in place anymore, even though there may be a bridge or partial in place. Dr. Andersen or Dr. Hickey can correct this defect with ridge reconstruction, making your smile look natural again.
