Socket Preservation Services

Denver Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery specializes in socket preservation. Our team of surgeons is experienced and equipped to preserve your dental socket after tooth extraction, allowing for future restorations and oral health. 

The Importance of Socket Preservation 

After a tooth is removed, the space that it once occupied is empty. If the space is not properly filled, it can cause significant oral problems including pain and infection. To ensure complications don’t arise and that the structure of the area is preserved, bone grafting materials are ideally placed into the space in a procedure known as socket preservation. This approach preserves the jawbone’s structure and density, laying the groundwork for future dental implants or restorative surgeries. 

With experience and skill, we use advanced techniques to carefully place bone grafting material, sometimes with a collagen membrane, to promote natural bone regeneration and prevent socket collapse, optimizing your jaw’s health and appearance after extraction. 

Benefits of Socket Preservation 

Socket preservation has many benefits including: 

  • Preserving your jawbone’s structure. 
  • Providing a foundation for dental implants or bridges. 
  • Preventing adjoining tooth drift. 
  • Enhances your smile’s beauty.
