Predictable Socket Preservation protocols to improve treatment outcomes (Dr.Matthew Fien DDS)
Following tooth extraction there is a predictable change in alveolar ridge dimensions. The use of socket preservation protocols has been shown to limit these changes and helps to maintain normal anatomic contours. There are a variety of factors that determine the most appropriate protocol that should be employed for each case. This presentation will review the factors that determine the extent and severity of alveolar ridge resorption that can be expected and will review specific protocols that can be used to improve long term treatment outcomes.

1. To understand the factors that predispose the alveolar ridge to undergo resorption following tooth extraction
2. To understand how to minimize hard and soft tissue changes following tooth extraction
3. To understand the principles of socket preservation at the time of tooth extraction
4. To learn specific socket preservation protocols to manage extraction sites for future implant placement
