During basic and specialized training, we’re often told that
socket preservation is standard of care. Today, we wonder, is it? If not, why
not? We were also voiced much about atraumatic extraction and the simple
technique of socket grafting, especially in areas where bone and soft tissue
shrinkage would impede proper pontic aesthetics and implant placement.
What about retained roots, trauma to other structures, damage to developing
(underlying) permanent teeth, and need for tension-less flaps at suture line?
Are dentists following? Do we in the smile zone, at least? Besides, why are
we still questioned, almost on a regular basis, by residents as well as fellow
clinicians whether to irrigate or not, post-extraction? Concerns, we thought
to address celebrating the end of 2017, or in better words, ~120 years since
coining the term “dry socket” for the first time.
