Also known as alveolar ridge preservation, socket preservation is a procedure that can be performed following tooth extraction to maximise the possibility and predictability of future implant placement. Following tooth extraction, the bone can resorb significantly, making future placement of a dental implant more challenging. By using a bone graft, socket preservation aims to minimise the amount of bone resorption and preserve the tooth socket, in turn improving the possibility of future implant treatment.
At Aria Dental Perth, we have the appropriate expertise in materials, services and training to offer our patients socket preservation procedures to improve the quality and success of any future dental implant placement.
Our socket preservation services are used by patients from across Western Australia. Due to our Perth CBD location, we are particularly accessible for patients in West Perth, East Perth, South Perth, North Perth, Subiaco and surrounding suburbs.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
