Socket seal

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

Sealing an extraction socket with Geistlich Mucograft® Seal can further improve soft-tissue parameters in extraction sockets with preserved buccal walls3

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 minimizes invasion and maximizes soft-tissue outcomes2.
