Whenever possible, it is best to preserve your natural teeth. However, there are a number of occasions in which a tooth extraction may be the best option for your smile. Our dentists will provide you with replacement options for your tooth, one of which may be a dental implant. No matter which type of restoration your choose, you will need to have healthy gums and bones. At Brighton Periodontal & Implant Dental Group, Dr. Homayoun H. Zadeh, Dr. Ali Zadeh, Dr. Sara Tanavoli and Dr. Karen Wager often work together to preserve your oral health and one of the things our team offers is socket preservation.
During socket preservation, the dentist will preserve as much bone tissue as possible while extracting your tooth. Following the extraction, the dentist will clean the socket and insert bone grafting material. This will be covered by an absorbable plug or sutures so that the area can heal. In many cases, this treatment can be done on the same day as your extraction. This process helps to maintain the health, appearance and integrity of the extraction site and will increase the chances of your restoration being successful.
As a leader in creating and developing periodontal treatments, Dr. Zadeh understands the issues that affect the health of your gums. You can trust the experience, expertise and technology at our office to protect and improve the health of your smile.
