“The value of a tooth for alveolar ridge management"
It is recognized that tooth retention strategies can often result in better aesthetic outcomes when compared to dental implant strategies alone. From this perspective, the value of a tooth to maintain the supporting bone and gingival tissues will be examined. The presentation will focus on root retention strategies for traumatized or non-restorable incisors in both our adult and growing patients.
Topics: Ridge preservation
- The value of a root for ridge management.
- How these strategies can enhance or delay dental implant placement.
