Santoshni Samal [2] | Faheem Ahmed | Mukesh Kumar [21]


Abstract: In the aim of achieving an optimal esthetic result, implant dentistry has become an important part of providing prosthesis. The prosthetic and/or surgical parts of the procedure should be performed to reach an optimal outcome. For minimizing the resorption of hard and soft tissue, that exists around the newly extracted tooth socket preservation procedures were introduced, however, in case of ridge deficiencies, hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures are indicated. In this paper, we will present a case report using a new approach in socket ridge preservation, which is the socket shield technique (partial root retention).
