Ridge Augmentation

Sometimes after an extraction, the site will be to resorb and lose height and width.  This can reduce the predictability of the site for implant placement. It can also appear unesthetic for future restorations such as a bridge or a crown. Bone grafting material along with guided tissue regenerative materials can be used to fill the tooth socket or concavity.


Dr. Priya Archarya
Welcome To Acharya Periodontics

What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
