Socket Preservation


When a tooth is extracted, a hollow space remains in the jaw bone.

When this heals, the bone and gum collapses quickly, and the ridge contour is not maintained.

This can cause problems for later implant placement especially in the areas that can be seen by others.

If enough bone is lost, complex grafting procedures are required to restore what has been lost.

Preserving bone at the time of extraction, known as 'socket preservation' or 'socket grafting' becomes an important procedure to prevent additional future grafting and expense.

Socket preservation is a simple process whereby Bio-Oss collagen is placed in the space that the extracted tooth leaves behind, and it serves as a scaffold to guide new bone formation.

It incorporates in the new bone and preserves the ridge contour.
