What is Ridge Augmentation?
Occasionally when a tooth has been removed, the rest of the socket and the surrounding bone break or do not heal well. This can result in a deformity of your gums or an area of reduced density in your jaw. When this happens, Dr. Husam Elias may suggest a ridge augmentation. Also known as horizontal or vertical alveolar ridge augmentation or socket preservation, this procedure uses bone grafts to reestablish the alveolar ridge, which is the area across the roots of your teeth. The augmentation process will construct the bone back up to the original width and height to prepare the mouth for a dental implant. Ridge augmentation may also be recommended for cosmetic reasons to correct the appearance of your gums. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, CA, ridge augmentation can be performed with numerous bone graft options. Schedule an appointment to find out more information about ridge augmentation and dental implants, along with other approaches for mouth restoration.
How is Ridge Augmentation Performed?
You may be a candidate for ridge (or sinus) augmentation if you have lost bone density at the alveolar ridge of a tooth or teeth. Ridge augmentation can be performed as an outpatient procedure that will usually be completed with IV sedation. The first step is to set the graft inside the jawbone socket where the tooth was extracted. After that, your gums may be shaped over the graft before they are stitched closed. It may be required in some cases for our team to add a second substance to the graft to make the space and elevation that match the desired look. Following your procedure, you need to have a responsible friend or family member take you home and watch you for a couple of hours. You may experience some pain and discomfort following a sinus augmentation. Our team will supply you with the necessary recovery instructions, diet restrictions, and prescriptions to ensure you have a smooth recovery process. You need to contact our office right away if you have any questions or signs of an infection. Typically, it will take around 4 – 6 months for your mouth to heal before another procedure may be performed.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.
I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
