  • Suitable bone grafting material is chosen and filled in place. It is secured properly to prevent any complications. 

  • The grafting is locked in place using screws or membranes. 

  • After that, the gum tissue is sutured again to heal and adjust to the new position.

Graft failure: In rare cases, the bone that is grafted may not integrate with the existing jaw. This results in swelling and intense pain. 

Allergic reaction: The material used in augmentation or the medication that is prescribed can result in hypersensitivity in some individuals. 

Sinus issues: If the upper jaw: If the ridge augmentation surgery involves the upper jaw, sinus-related issues may occur.
