Ridge Preservation


 

While our Los Angeles, Beverly Hills ridge preservation expert makes every effort to preserve natural teeth in order to keep your smile healthy, some teeth may need to be extracted. Extraction may be necessary due to abscess, decay, dental trauma or gum disease. Unfortunately, significant resorption of the bone tissue can begin immediately. The bone tissue breaks down and shrinks. In some cases, the tissue breaks and shrinks dramatically, while in other cases, the process is slower and steadier.

If you are a candidate for a dental extraction, our expert in ridge preservation in Beverly Hills may recommend ridge preservation during the extraction process to limit the potential damage. Once the tooth has been extracted, the bone around the socket tends to collapse, which makes the ridge thinner and narrower. Eventually, the bone itself will collapse. This process can be accelerated by external factors, including traditional denture use.

Ridge Preservation Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

We can explain all your options while we are creating your treatment plan. We may be able to place a bone graft at the time of the extraction, which limits the tooth loss and minimizes the need for future bone grafts. Our expert in ridge preservation in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles may also recommend placing implants after your dental extractions. Dental implants fit into the jawbone just like the natural teeth do and help protect the bone tissue.

The bone graft materials used in ridge preservation offer support and stability to the tooth socket, but it is not a permanent solution to bone loss after extraction. For best results, most patients will need to have their dental implants placed no later than four to 12 months after the initial extraction. If implants are not placed soon enough, the bone can continue the resorption or deterioration process, and another bone graft may be necessary. OurBeverly Hills ridge preservation expert can help you determine the best options for your treatment needs.

If you need a dental extraction or have already had a dental extraction, we can help. Contact our office today to find out more or to schedule your consultation with our Beverly Hills periodontist.
