A socket preservation procedure prevents and repairs jaw deformities caused by:

  • Infection or disease-related damage to the bone that normally holds a tooth in place following a tooth extraction.
  • The rapid shrinking and recession of the bone and gums resulting in the unsightly collapse of the cheeks and lips.

These jaw defects can create major problems if you need dental implants, bridges or dentures.

The surgeons at CVOS Oral Surgery are trained in several techniques to preserve the bone and minimize bone loss after the removal of a tooth. During your consultation appointment, they will clearly explain to you what your recommended treatment options will provide you with your most desirable outcome.

If your dentist recommends the removal of one or more of your teeth, or if you are planning to replace your front teeth, be sure to ask about socket preservation!
