Preserving Your Jaw Bone After Extraction
What Is Socket Regeneration?
This procedure is meant to remove deposits from the roots of the teeth that cannot even be reached through deep cleanings. We remove all unhealthy tissue, and recontour the bone to mimic "healthy" bone structure.
“This is one of the best Perio offices I have worked with. And love the dental hygienist there. Very happy with Dr. Aurora's help and the very together office staff."”

When a tooth is extracted and an implant is to be placed (either simultaneously or in the future) it is always necessary to complete bone grafting within the residual sockets that are left behind after the roots of the tooth are removed. The shape of the tooth root is always different from the shape of a dental implant and hence there are always residual socket defects (holes) that must be filled in so that there can be excellent contact of the implant to the newly formed bone.
