My work takes me all over the country and one of the recent destinations was the Forest of Arden in the Birmingham area where I took part in a round the table meeting to discuss extract socket preservation.
In layman’s terms that means looking at ways to use a new material which can be used after teeth extraction to maintain the bone in the area.
This means a more straightforward and aesthetic implant solution for long term tooth replacement. I’m a regional expert on the topic for Geistlich Biomaterials who have invented the new material. During the meeting I presented my findings to the other regional experts from the rest of the UK and beyond. It’s an ongoing study and it’s hugely interesting for me to be working on it.
