Socket Preservation (Oral Surgery Procedures)


Socket Preservation is a procedure in which graft material or scaffold is placed in the socket of an extracted tooth at the time of extraction to preserve the alveolar ridge. After extraction, jaw bones may need to be preserved to keep sockets in its original shape. Without socket preservation, the bone quickly resorbs. The jaw bone will never revert to its original shape once bone is lost and tissue contour has changed.

We offer numerous treatments here at Marylebone Implant Centre to help deal with crown or full tooth loss (dental implants). These can vary from full Dental Implants to replace the entire tooth, to other more minor procedures to replace crowns. Please get in touch with us today to discuss your options.
