Are you seeking effective solutions to restore deteriorated gum lines or inadequate jaw bone support? At Tamara Levit, DDS in North Bethesda, MD, our ridge augmentation and sinus lift procedures offer state-of-the-art solutions to address these concerns and pave the way for natural-looking smiles.

Revitalize Your Smile with Ridge Augmentation and Sinus Lift

Ridge and sinus augmentations are revolutionary dental interventions designed to replenish deteriorated gum lines and underlying bone structures resulting from tooth loss or extraction. At Tamara Levit, DDS, we specialize in ridge augmentation, aimed at reconstructing degenerated or underdeveloped gums, and sinus augmentation, focused on enhancing maxillary jaw bone density and volume by lifting the sinus floor and grafting bone material.

Unlock Your Smile's Potential

Did you know that tooth loss isn't the sole factor necessitating ridge or sinus augmentation? Various oral diseases like periodontal disease or facial trauma can lead to deteriorating gum lines or inadequate jaw bone support. Moreover, prolonged denture wear can induce bone atrophy. By integrating bone grafts and fortifying the gum line, our dental experts pave the way for permanent dental implants, ensuring a natural and confident smile.

The Procedure: What to Expect

Ridge augmentations commence with a local anesthetic to ensure a pain-free experience. The graft material is delicately placed into the tooth socket, followed by repositioning of the surrounding gum tissue over the graft and suturing for closure. Sinus lift augmentations follow a similar process, with an incision made to expose the sinus floor and hard graft materials utilized to bolster it. After suturing, the site is allowed to heal before proceeding with additional treatments, such as dental implants.

Are You a Candidate?

Determining whether you're an ideal candidate for sinus or ridge augmentation involves considering various factors beyond just tooth loss. If previous attempts at dental implants were unsuccessful due to inadequate supporting tissues, our augmentation procedures could provide a viable solution. 

Additionally, if you experience insecurity or embarrassment due to a receded gum line, our expert dental team can assess your situation and recommend the most suitable course of action. We understand that each patient's needs are unique, which is why we offer personalized consultations to discuss your concerns and goals thoroughly.
