Tooth loss and subsequent natural remodeling of the alveolar process presents itself as a major challenge in the age of implant dentistry. Reconstruction of the dento-alveolar ridge is often required   for esthetic implant reconstruction and is a major challenge for the surgeon and a burden for the patient.  Socket grafting creates a unique opportunity to prevent the loss of the alveolar process and allows the subsequent implant-reconstruction to be much less complicated. Current protocols therefore are aimed at pre-planning extractions thus allowing for preservation of tissue. The course will give a short review of current concepts, focusing on practical and easy approaches for socket grafting in everyday practice: Socket grafting, made easy!
