Extraction site bone preservation:
Tooth extraction typically leads to loss of ridge width and height. Degree of bone loss varies among individual subjects and between
anatomic sites. 40% of alveolar height and 60 % of alveolar width may be lost in first 6 months after extraction.
Several techniques and variety of biomaterials may be used to prevent bone resorption - such as guided tissue regeneration.
ClearCorrect vs. Invisalign:
ClearCorrect and Invisalign both are a series of clear, custom-fit, removable
aligners that slowly realign teeth into the desired position.
ClearCorrect aligners offer enhanced clarity (meaning they're virtually invisible)
and are minimally invasive.
