Socket seal

After tooth extraction, a ridge preservation procedure can compensate resorbed hard tissue1,2 and thereby reduce the number of secondary augmentations at implant placement1.

Sealing an extraction socket with Geistlich Mucograft® Seal can further improve soft-tissue parameters in extraction sockets with preserved buccal walls3. The round matrix provides an alternative to free gingival punch grafts.

 

Clinical case: Early implant placement with socket sealing for improvement of
soft-tissue parameters.

 

The use of Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal minimises invasion and maximises soft-tissue outcomes3.
