It is important to preserve the bone and surrounding gum tissue to prevent cosmetic and functional defects. Bone and gum loss results in an unsightly collapsed appearance and prevents adequate replacement of the tooth.
We use special bioengineered bone material inside an empty socket. This material, structured similarly to human bone, not only supports new bone growth but also has been shown to preserve bone and overlying soft tissue following tooth removal. Bone graft material is then covered with a natural fiber material to protect both the graft and newly forming bone, and to help support and guide new soft tissue growth.
The combination of preserved bone not only prevents resorption of the bone and gums, but also provides a strong base for placing a dental implant, thus completely replacing the old tooth and its root and creating a natural smile.
