What Is The Process of Ridge Preservation?
Our team will guide you through the whole process during your initial visit beforehand. We perform ridge preservation under local anesthesia. However, if you feel anxious or worried, we can also provide nitrous oxide sedation to help you relax during the procedure. Once a satisfactory level of anesthesia has been achieved, we will complete the necessary tooth extractions.
After removal, we will add a special bone graft material to the empty tooth sockets to preserve the natural bony structure. Bone graft material can be derived from natural or synthetic sources. We may also add tissue regeneration factors in the sockets to stimulate the production of healthy bone and help in the healing process. The final step is to suture the gums together to protect the bone graft material. Our team will give you aftercare instructions for a smooth recovery period.
