Preserve Your Dental Health with Socket Preservation at Dental Magik, East Brunswick

Dental Magik in East Brunswick offers socket preservation services as part of our comprehensive restorative dentistry practice. Socket preservation is a crucial procedure following tooth extraction, aimed at preventing bone loss and maintaining the integrity of the jawbone, ensuring it remains healthy and strong for future dental restorations, such as implants.

What Is Socket Preservation?

Socket preservation is a preventive dental procedure performed immediately after a tooth extraction. It involves placing a bone graft material into the socket where the tooth was removed. This graft helps to promote natural bone regeneration, maintaining the height and width of the jawbone and preventing the socket from collapsing.

Benefits of Socket Preservation

  • Prevents Bone Loss: After tooth extraction, the jawbone can quickly begin to deteriorate. Socket preservation helps to prevent this bone loss, maintaining the structure of your jaw.
  • Enhances Future Dental Implant Success: By preserving the bone, this procedure creates a solid foundation for future dental implants, increasing their success rate.
  • Maintains Facial Structure: Preventing bone loss helps to preserve the natural contour of your face and jawline.
  • Reduces Complications: Socket preservation can reduce the risk of complications associated with tooth extraction and bone loss, such as shifting of remaining teeth.

The Socket Preservation Process

  1. Tooth Extraction: The first step is the careful extraction of the tooth, ensuring minimal impact on surrounding tissues.
  2. Grafting Material: Immediately after extraction, a bone grafting material is placed into the socket. This material may be synthetic, human, or animal-based.
  3. Membrane Application: A membrane may be placed over the graft to protect it and encourage bone regeneration.
  4. Healing: Over time, your body naturally replaces the graft material with your own bone, preserving the socket’s structure.
