Ridge Preservation Santa Rosa and Ukiah
When a tooth is removed or lost to gum disease, supportive bone is lost with it. Maintenance of bone is essential to support gum tissue for cosmetic restoration or allow for an environment that will support a dental implant. Careful management of the extraction site after tooth removal prevents unsightly bone loss and can provide a better cosmetic outcome for tooth replacement. At the time of tooth loss a bone graft is placed in the socket to promote bone healing and an ideal clinical outcome.
