Extraction Site Preservation

St. Louis Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery – MO

Careful management of extraction sockets at the time of extraction prevents severe bone loss during the healing phase. The socket is often bone grafted with artificial bone grafting products, allowing the preservation of the architecture of the bone so dental implants can be placed.
