Webinar | The Socket: Inside and Out

One of the most challenging areas in implant dentistry is managing a socket post-extraction.

Specifically, the challenge in how to maintain the socket to allow for an ideal foundation for future implant placement. This webinar will look at the extraction socket from all angles including the biology and how it changes to ways to preserve the socket. Grafting materials and suturing techniques will be discussed along with a video demonstration of a socket preservation on a model.
