Ridge Preservation Procedure on the Mandibular Right Canine

Learning Objectives:

After watching this video, the viewer should:

  • Be able to visualize the process of ridge preservation on a mandibular right canine
  • Know how bioresorpable membranes can assist in this procedure

This case will demonstrate treatment of this mandibular right canine that has a root resorptive lesion on the lingual surface, and will focus on ridge preservation using a resorbable membrane for barrier protection in a ridge preservation procedure. The patient presented with the chief concern of having a root resorptive lesion present for the mandiublar right canine. The patient desired replacement of the mandibular right canine with a dental implant. The challenge of the treatment will be to make a transition from this pathologic natural tooth to a healthy dental implant with a healthy foundation.
