What is the process for socket preservation?
What is the benefit of socket preservation?
When a tooth or teeth have been removed, it is important the jaw bone is preserved as this helps to keep the socket in its original shape. Without socket preservation, the bone quickly resorbs. This can lead to significant bone density loss in the six months after the tooth has been removed. If this occurs, the jaw bone does not revert to its original shape.
If you have had one or multiple teeth removed and would like to discuss your options, the dentists at Lillybrook Dental can help.
