Socket Preservation

Our prosthodontist may suggest socket preservation if you have recently had a tooth extraction or have had a missing tooth for quite some time. When this is the case, oftentimes the bone in the socket begins to collapse, making it difficult to support a dental restoration such as an implant or dental bridge. To resolve this, Dr. Burton Melton will insert a bone graft before you receive a new restoration.
