Ridge Preservation To Allow Dental Implant Placement
Ridge Preservation (Socket Preservation)
Ridge Preservation creates a solid type of bone to support implants and helps to regrow the volume of bone necessary to support dental implants.
Careful management of extraction sockets after tooth extraction prevents unsightly bone loss and provides a better cosmetic outcome for dental implant tooth replacement. In many instances, this procedure avoids a more costly and/ or more involved Ridge Augmentation procedure such as a sinus lift. Sometimes a membrane is used to help the area heal. This procedure provides a strong bone foundation for success of your dental implant treatment long term.
If needed, sedation can be used to keep you comfortable and relaxed.
Socket Preservation is also called extraction socket repair.
