Preserving and/or augmenting the alveolar bone following an extraction have become a gold standard in the current world of Implantology. In this CE webinar, a brief review of the wound healing process of extraction sockets, the rationale for alveolar bone preservation and the steps leading to facilitating prosthetic based surgical implant placement will be covered, including methods of atraumatic tooth extractions. Many techniques offer excellent results but are surgically demanding and not necessarily cost effective to our patients. A novel, simple and predictable method of ridge preservation will be discussed.
