Sometimes when you lose one or more teeth, you can get an indentation in your gums and jawbone where the tooth used to be. This happens because the jawbone recedes when it no longer is holding a tooth in place,
Not only is this indentation unnatural looking, it also causes the replacement tooth to look too long compared to the adjacent teeth. Dr. Goteiner can fill these "defects" with a procedure called ridge augmentation. We can recapture the natural contour and color of your gums and jaw. When the new tooth is created it will be natural looking, easier to clean and beautiful.
