What Is Ridge Preservation?
When a tooth is extracted, the jawbone underneath it is at risk of degradation. To help preserve your bone structure and overall oral health, Fresh Dentistry is pleased to perform ridge preservation, a bone grafting procedure used to help protect the bone and gum tissues from shrinking after a tooth extraction. This procedure has many benefits, including how it prepares the bone socket for an implant without the need for a graft. It can also help to maintain the original appearance of your smile after extraction. Performed immediately following a tooth extraction, a ridge preservation procedure utilizes a specialized grafting product to fill the empty extraction socket. The filling substance can help to stimulate the regeneration of the socket. If you are in need of a tooth extraction, contact Fresh Dentistry in Cedar Hill, TX to ask about the benefits of ridge preservation for your oral health and to set up your consultation with Dr. Candace Brown.
What Can I Expect During My Ridge Preservation Treatment?
Ridge preservation procedures are performed in our Cedar Hill, TX office following a tooth extraction. During your consultation, Dr. Brown will go over your sedation choices, depending on the length of your procedure and your individual needs. After your tooth is extracted (with care to maintain the bone as much as possible), Dr. Brown will begin the ridge preservation procedure by filling the vacant socket with the grafting material, which may come from your own body or another source. The bone may then be covered with a barrier material or sutures. Over time, the grafting material should integrate into your jawbone, offering added support for the surrounding teeth.
Following your ridge preservation treatment, you might experience mild inflammation or discomfort, which can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medicines. If you experience persistent pain, uncontrolled bleeding, or a high fever, you should contact our office immediately. As your bone graft heals and integrates into the jaw, Dr. Brown may recommend placing a dental implant to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
