    Following tooth extraction, the natural healing process invariably results in loss of alveolar ridge height and width. Up to half of the ridge width can be lost following the first 12 months of extraction. Such significant loss can compromise our ability to restore the defect without significant surgical interventions at a later stage. The use of appropriate biomaterials at the time of extraction can effectively compensate for much of this bone loss. Preserving the ridge dimensions will help simplify future treatments.
