Dental Implants – Preserving the Tooth Site

Implant Site PreservationImplant Site Preservation

Implant site preservation for prudent management of an extraction socket following the removal of a tooth will help lessen the reduction of bone loss, and lend a preferable cosmetic outcome for tooth replacement.

Bone grafting is a process that will preserve the socket/ridge after a tooth extraction, minimizing gum and bone collapse. With less gum shrinkage, there more is more esthetic area for an implant crown or fixed bridge around the replacement teeth.
