Ridge Augmentation in Cincinnati
Replace bone and gum tissue for a healthier future
Restore gum & bone structure to ensure a successful restoration
When a tooth is missing or critically damaged, further damage can occur if the tooth is not restored quickly, including the loss of bone or gum tissue. When this occurs, the bone and gum tissue must be replaced before restoration can be successfully executed.
At Periodontics & Implantology At Cornerstone, we perform ridge augmentation procedures to restore oral health to the point where patients can feel confident about their future. This procedure is often performed after tooth extraction and ensures successful implant placement.

Dental implants need a solid foundation to guarantee success. When a tooth is missing or damaged, the stability of your oral health weakens. With our diagnostic tools, we’ll identify any bone or gum structural issues prior to your implant treatment and recommend ridge augmentation if we believe it will help the success of your treatment.
