Prepare Your Jaw for Dental Implants

To move forward with an implant procedure, Dr. Schwartz will need to examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate. He’ll use digital X-rays, CT scans, and intraoral cameras to plan and prepare for your treatment. Rest assured, he will only recommend a ridge augmentation, and any other procedure, if absolutely necessary.

If needed, he will rebuild the contours of your jaw. He places bone grafting material in areas that have lost density. The graft spurs bone growth, restoring needed height and width.

He also uses modern techniques, such as platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to encourage the post-operative healing process. The quicker you heal, the quicker you’ll be ready for implants. After the healing process, we can proceed with procedures such as:

  • All-on-4 (or 6) Dental Implants Dr. Schwartz will place four or six implants in your jaw to support your new teeth. It gives you feel and function that are similar to natural teeth.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – If you are receiving a complete reconstruction, we can continue with the rest of your treatment plan to rebuild your smile.

Common Questions About Ridge Augmentations

What is ridge augmentation?

A ridge augmentation is when your dentist builds up your jaw ridge where you have one or more missing teeth. They will add gum tissue, bone tissue, or both to the ridge to prepare the jaw for implants and/or to make your jaw ridge more attractive. A ridge augmentation recaptures the natural contour of your jaw and gums.

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.
