Soft Tissue Ridge Augmentation

Gum Tissue Loss and Bridgework Dentistry

For many patients this is a needed procedure because the bone and gums can resorb underneath a dental bridge on a routine basis, especially when dentists insert the bridge too early after an extraction and leave the pontic (fake tooth) hanging in mid air.

Time should be alloted to let the gum tissue take up it's final resting place. A determination can then be made if an augmentation is needed. Only then, should the bridge be fabricated.

By fabricating and placing a bridge too early, tissue conditions can make nearly any bridge look artificial.

This unique reparative procedure creates the impression and apppearance that an artificial tooth is actually emerging out of the gum line.
