What is Socket Preservation?

When a tooth is extracted, the procedure leaves behind a small, sensitive hole where the tooth once was. Socket preservation protects the socket and exposed nerves after a tooth extraction.

How is Socket Preservation Done?

A socket or alveolar ridge preservation procedure involves placing a bone graft into the socket, where the tooth once was. The goal of socket preservation is to improve the appearance of the remaining teeth and gums and to make the process of getting a dental implant at a later visit less complicated.
