Preserving your jaw bone after an extraction is important in preventing a defect or collapse in the structure of the lips or cheeks. In addition, any future restorative procedures can be difficult or impossible to complete with a damaged jaw bone. Dr. Jeremy Hixson offers socket preservation in Eagle, Idaho, as a way to help our patients maintain proper jaw bone strength and density post-surgery. Socket preservation can also greatly improve your smile’s appearance and increase your chances for successful dental implants.
