Ridge Preservation

The process:

When extracting a tooth, our periodontists will use careful techniques to preserve as much bone as possible. We will thoroughly clean the socket and place bone replacement material into the extraction site to prevent the collapse of the socket. A membrane and stitches will be placed to protect the bone graft. To find out if this is an option for you, please speak with our periodontists.

Our periodontists, Dr. Luis Benitez and Dr. Veronica Longville want to help you restore your oral health. This process will help with a healthy recovery and ensure stability where the tooth has been removed.
