Removal Periodontal Ligament
The periodontal ligament is a connective tissue made of a big number of blood vessels. It surrounds the teeth and works as a connector between the alveolar bone and the cementum.
If the ligament is not removed properly after a teeth extraction, it can become an impediment for the cells that form the bone to act on the alveolus in the optimal way. If this happens, it can cause cavitations in the future.
In our clinic, on these cases, we remove the periodontal ligament after a teeth extraction. As well, we recommend our patients a graft to preserve the space needed for a teeth implantation in the future.
