Socket preservation

Socket preservation is a technique whereby bone graft material is added to the extraction socket at the time of tooth extraction. The intent of this procedure is to minimise the normal atrophy or shrinkage of the bone that occurs following extraction of a tooth. This, in turn, enables more bone volume to be preserved in the jaws in order to place a dental implant in the area in the future.
