Bone grafting/Socket preservation
It is a simple procedure completed immediately after a tooth is pulled out from its socket to slow down the shrinkage of the bone. It involves packing the empty socket with bone graft material (cadaver bone/animal origin bone/synthetic bone) to preserve the natural width and height of the jaw bone. It improves the outcome of restorative solutions like dental implants, bridges and dentures. It is easier to preserve the existing bone and less expensive than other types of bone graft procedures that are necessary to rebuild the bone that was lost.
