Socket Preservation


When tooth removal becomes unavoidable, the question of jaw preservation becomes paramount. If a tooth is lost there are a few risk factors that arise. Without feedback from a tooth the bone under your gums can begin to recede, this is known as bone loss. The gums surrounding the lost tooth can also start to recede. When bone and tissue loss takes place in your mouth the surrounding teeth can be adversely affected. In order to avoid further tooth loss, and the changes in facial structure that come with bone and tissue loss, we provide a treatment option called socket preservation procedure that can prevent such occurrences.

What does socket preservation procedure entail?


When a tooth is removed from your jaw, a hole is left behind. This hole is the socket that the root of your tooth sat in. To prevent bone and tissue loss we will fill the socket with bone or bone substitute. Once the socket has been filled it is capped and the gums are sutured closed. The site will heal and the bone in the socket will integrate into the bone within your jaw.

Why do I need socket preservation?


Socket preservation is critical to the health of your mouth. This procedure has the ability to provide many benefits to your oral health in the event of tooth loss. The strong bone structure it provides acts not only as insurance that your oral health will be maintained, it can provide dental implants a solid base in the future.
