Tooth Socket Preservation

Tooth Socket PreservationSocket preservation is a simple – yet important – measure that is taken following a tooth extraction.

The procedure is relatively simple and typically pain free. Following the extraction, the tooth socket will immediately begin to close. The periodontists places temporary bone graph or dental scaffold material into the socket to preserve its shape.

Reasons for Socket Preservation

Socket preservation promotes a healthy recovery after a tooth extraction, but it also does much more:

Cosmetic Benefits – if a tooth socket is not preserved following extraction, the jaw bone will begin to deform, causing permanent aesthetic changes to the patient’s face structure.

Dental Implants – All forms of dental prosthesis require good gum and jaw support. Socket preservation allows for a wide range of tooth replacement options in the future.
