Straightforward approach – Bridge restoration

Alveolar ridge preservation is recommended to preserve bone volume under a pontic and prevent compromised aesthetic results1.

Clinical case: Ridge preservation following tooth extraction in preparation for a bridge restoration with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide®.


The use of a bone substitute under a pontic preserves the alveolar ridge, improving outcome and aesthetics1.
