Ridge Preservation

Careful management of extraction sockets after tooth extraction prevents unsightly bone loss and provides a better cosmetic outcome for tooth replacement. To increase the possibility of future implant placement, a ridge preservation procedure may be recommended. Without bone graft and collagen barrier placement into the socket to preserve the bone, studies show that 30-40% of the jaw bone is immediately lost from disuse atrophy. That is, your body perceives that once the root is removed- the bone is no longer needed and your body resorbes it.
