Conical devices placed in the alveolar ridge after tooth extraction have been used clinically for several years to maintain the ridge morphology. In this way, the bone atrophy which occurs after extractions is minimized, and denture fit and function are enhanced. A system using such cones made from Bioglass (registered trademark of the University of Florida) and matching burs has been developed and tested clinically. Average four-year data show a retention rate of over 90%, which compares… CONTINUE READING
