Extractions and Ridge Preservation

Extractions and Ridge Preservation Illustration

In some cases a tooth may be deemed hopeless and must be extracted to prevent the spread of infection and bone loss. Central Texas Periodontics will not only remove the tooth/teeth in question but will also provide services such as bone grafts to help preserve the socket for future treatments.

Ridge preservation can potentially minimize the amount of bone loss that occurs between the time of tooth removal and implant or bridge placement, as compared to leaving the socket empty. Techniques and materials used for this procedure have steadily improved over time, making Ridge Preservation the most conservative bone grafting procedure available.
