Alveolar ridge preservation
When a tooth is considered to be irrational to treat and needs to be extracted every dentist needs to take decisions on whether to let the socket heal spontaneously with a blood clot or whether to perform alveolar ridge preservation procedures. In this module you are going to learn all the important decision-making factors and the clinical handling after tooth extraction to choose either between spontaneous healing after tooth extraction or immediate implant placement or alveolar ridge preservation procedures.
