Socket Shield - Uncompromised Aesthetics through Biologic Preservation

Dr. Jeff Li

AGD Subject Code: 690



Implant surgery in the aesthetic zone is one of the most challenging areas of dentistry. Once a tooth is extracted, a chain of remodeling events takes place which often leads to less-than-desirable outcomes, both from the surgical and prosthetic standpoints. Although various techniques exist, the Socket Shield technique stands out as the one utilizing true biologic preservation. Over time and with refinement, it has shown to be both predictable and reproducible and should be considered in almost all aesthetic implant cases.



  • Understand challenges in aesthetic implant dentistry

  • Describe the rationale & protocol for partial extraction therapy

  • Clinical case presentations with a step-by-step protocol
