Extraction socket treatment. A biological approach

Back Cover

The post-extraction alveolus treatment is a common challenge for any dental professional. Preserving the original volume of the alveolus and preventing its collapse after a dental extraction is still a topic of interest, even more when the intention is to insert a dental implant in that area.

This book presents a regenerative approach to the post-extraction alveolus based on the use of Endoret® (PRGF®) technology. This fully autologous technology enables us to take on the treatment of the post-extraction alveolus from a biological focus, achieving excellent results. The book also covers various relevant aspects such as the extraction technique and the intrinsic regenerative process of the alveolus, as well as the repercussion of this technology on more complex cases such as patients treated with bisphosphonates.
