A ridge augmentation is a common dental procedure often performed following a tooth extraction.
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts.
After dental implant surgery, do not disturb the wound. Avoid rinsing, spitting, or touching the wound on the day of surgery.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.
A small amount of bleeding is to be expected following the operation to remove multiple teeth.
