Extraction Site Preservation

When you need to have a teeth extraction procedure due to decay, abscess, gum disease or injury, it is important to preserve the jawbone beneath your tooth as much as possible.

When your tooth is extracted, a blood clot naturally forms in the socket to prevent bleeding and begin the healing process. New gum then begins to fill in the socket as it continues to heal. The clot will slowly become granulation tissue, and then eventually bone. However, if nothing is done during the healing process, the jaw bone loses its shape. This can affect your speech and chewing abilities.

To prevent this, you can fill the space with a dental implant or bridge. The bridge has to be molded before your teeth begin to shift.
