Research has shown that patients who have teeth extracted subsequently lose 40-60% of the bone surrounding the extraction site within the following 3 years. At Lorton Town Dental, our dentists may recommend a socket preservation treatment on the day of your extraction as a way to avoid dry socket and prevent bone loss and misalignment.
Socket preservation limits or prevents bone loss and preserves the bone for future implant placement. Socket preservation is a very safe, predictable, and routinely performed procedure at Lorton Town Dental.
The procedure consists of Dr. Khattab placing a bone graft into the socket before covering it with an ultra-durable material designed to last. This treatment is highly recommended for those who are good candidates for dental implants.
