Collin Tilbe joins Dr. Downs to talk about the importance of socket preservation. More dentists are doing extractions every day instead of sending the patient off to a specialist. Unfortunately, not all dentists are offering pocket preservations to their patients. It is important to get these in at the time of extraction, when the body starts the healing process.
Learning to preserve the arch during this work is standard care for extractions. Proper socket preservation will cause less trauma, decrease complications, save time and money. This is because you maintain a better aesthetic for the patient and limit any kind of trouble that may come down the road.
