Socket Preservation

Socket Preservation

One of the main complications of an extraction of tooth is loss of bone that supports the tooth.  If this bone loss goes unchecked it can cause gum recession and make it harder for us to place an implant at that site. With socket preservation we can reduce the amount of bone lost after a tooth extraction. At Crescent Dental we offer socket preservation that will stop bone loss making the implant process easier to perform in the future.

Socket Preservation Procedure

This procedure takes place after the extraction of a tooth. A bone graft material is placed in the socket of the extracted tooth. The bone graft is either made of Human bone, animal bone such as cow or synthetic material. After the grafting procedure the dentist covers the area with a membrane which is stitched to the gums. The graft serves as extra bone as well as a a scaffold for new your own new bone to grow into the site. This will preserve the  socketarea for a long term.

If Implant placement at an extraction site is not planned to be undertaken relatively sooner (3-4months after Extraction), preserving the site and preventing any untoward effects of bone resorption with the help of socket preservation technique is the next best option.

If a tooth was lost without preserving the site, you still don’t need to worry as there are other solutions (hard and soft tissue graft) to get the jawbone back to the way it should be. We are more than happy to discuss any concerns with you.

Why Do I Need Socket Preservation?

The jaw needs to have the correct thickness and structure for any type of a prosthesis to be placed (especially implants). Implants are the most natural and long-lasting tooth replacement treatment however sometimes it is not possible to place implants soon after an extraction. It could be due to medical reasons or financial situation.With socket preservation we can ensures that the jawbone is suitable for implants when the time comes. As implants area housed in bone, if there is not enough bone, which may preclude implant. The preservation procedure will make treatment in the future easier, more cost-effective, faster and successful.

Another benefit of socket preservation is that it prevents the risk of dry socket which can occour if the blood clot protecting the socket is lost. That inturn exposes the nerve ending underneath and cause a lot of pain. Protecting the bone level early will stop complications in the future.
