Grafting of Extraction Sockets: When, Why and How?

Tooth extraction is invariably followed by resorption of the ridge which can have negative implications for a future pontic site or for the subsequent placement of implants. The first part of this interactive hands-on course will provide the rationale for the decision criteria to graft or not to graft a socket
