Ridge Preservation In Bellmead, TX

Ridge Preservation In Bellmead, TX

After losing a tooth, the bone around your tooth structure begins to resorb. Naturally, your alveolar bone has upright contours to support your teeth in their socket, but it becomes more flattened when it loses its density. This makes your bone less ideal for dental implant placement because they require a sturdy foundation. For this reason, dentists at our practice perform ridge preservation treatment in Bellmead, TX, to maintain the natural shape of your bone.

    How Is Ridge Preservation Carried Out?

    When you visit our practice for tooth replacement options, our team will perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess your jawbones and soft tissues. The ideal time to get ridge preservation treatment from our Bellmead, TX, practice is soon after tooth extraction. The process begins with the administration of local anesthesia.

    Once the area is completely numb, we will perform the necessary tooth extractions. After removal, we will place a special bone graft material in the empty tooth socket. This bone graft, derived from natural or synthetic sources, can help to replenish your tooth socket and preserve the natural contours of the alveolar bone. To promote the healing process, our dentists will also add tissue regeneration factors that help to boost the production of healthy bones. After the completion of ridge preservation, our team will give you post-treatment guidelines for a successful recovery.

    Questions About Ridge Preservation?

    How Long Does Recovery Take?

    The recovery period of the ridge preservation process is short and uncomplicated in the majority of cases. You may feel slight pain or discomfort at the surgery site for a few days. To ease your recovery, our dentists will prescribe analgesics for pain relief. Having minor swelling or tenderness is also normal and not a thing to be anxious about. During the healing period, we recommend avoiding the use of straws, spitting, and smoking for a few days. These activities may disrupt the healing process and may cause other painful symptoms. After proper recovery, we will call you for a follow-up visit to monitor your progress. If it is satisfactory, we will move toward implant placement.
