Session II: Bone Preservation for Compromised Extraction Sites


Management of Extraction Sites


MaurÝcio G. Ara˙jo
Friday, June 7
9:15 am - 10:15 am
Grand Ballroom (Salon E, F)

Postextraction bone resorption represents a challenge for the clinician. It may lead to esthetic problems and more complicated implant placement. Thus, the aim of this presentation is to describe the dimensional alterations that occur following tooth extraction and to evaluate the benefit of socket bone grafting for the maintenance of the ridge profile.
