The loss of bone following tooth extraction is a significant clinical problem in implant and conventional dentistry. Clinical studies indicate that in the first few months following tooth extraction as much as 1-3 mm alveolar ridge height and 3-5 mm ridge width may be lost, with an average of 50% loss of ridge width in the first 12 months. The literature has shown that early bone loss can be significantly reduced by socket management techniques, combined with atraumatic tooth extraction, and this increases our patients’ candidacy for implant restoration.

Learning objectives:

  • Indications for socket preservation.
  • Differentiate classifications of bony defects and techniques.
  • Expand options of implant-based solutions for our patients.

This course is designed for dentists, hygienists, and assistants.
