Extraction Site Preservation Palmdale

Extraction Site Diagram

We aim to preserve our patients' natural teeth where possible and use a variety of procedures to do so. However, it's not always realistic to save the tooth, and it might need to be extracted. If the tooth has been infected, damaged or broken, removal might be necessary. It's important to preserve the site where the tooth is extracted. Get in touch with Boulevard Dental Palmdale today if you need an extraction site preservation palmdale procedure.

Extraction site preservation palmdale might be needed if the tooth socket is damaged, which might be caused by disease or infection. This can result in a jaw deformity. Another problem that can occur is that the bones and gum where the tooth was can shrink, leading to a collapse in the lips and cheeks.

Jaw Deformities Can Impact Restorative Options

Jaw deformities can result from a missing tooth going untreated. When deformities have occurred, it can limit the possibilities of restoration. That's why it's important to get dental attention for a missing tooth as soon as possible. The sooner you address it, the better chance you have of maintaining your smile and the function of your teeth.

Jaw defects might mean that you're unable to have some of the top restorative procedures. These include bridges, dentures and dental implants. You need to preserve the tooth extraction site if you want more dental options available to you.

Extraction Site or Socket Preservation

Dr Gobrial might suggest an extraction site preservation palmdale procedure to protect your gum and jaw after a tooth extraction. Socket preservation can even help to correct any damage to the socket or jaw that has already happened. If you have an extraction site preservation procedure, it can give you a greater chance of successful dental implants and other dental restorations later.

Dental Implant Replacement

Another option when you have a tooth extracted is to have a dental implant put in at the same time. Immediate Dental Implant Replacement helps to keep your jaw and mouth health, but it's not always a possibility. You can discuss with Dr Gobrial whether it's right for you.

How an Extraction Site Preservation Works

An extraction site preservation will first aim to preserve the alveolar ridge of the tooth. This requires Dr Gobrial to carry out a certain type of extraction, which includes keeping as much of the bone that surrounds the tooth as possible. Dr Gobrial will then use a bone graft to prevent bone collapse. Bone-like material is grafted into the socket and covered to protect it. A dissolvable plug or a suture will hold it in place, and bone will grow around the socket. This helps to prepare the socket so that it is ready for a dental implant.

After having an extraction site preservation procedure, a dental implant needs to be placed within a year. It's not intended to be a long-term solution, so it shouldn't be left on its own for too long. You can talk to Dr Gobrial about the next steps after your procedure.

My grandpa was having a terrible toothache so I brought him in to see Dr. Gobrial because I've heard wonderful things about him and his staff!! And it was so true! I asked the office if I could make an appointment and because he was having a tooth ache they told me to bring him right in!!! Dr. Gobrial took care of his toothache and made him dentures and now my grandpa has a beautiful smile. Dr Gobrial and the ENTIRE STAFF are the best in the AV.
