Clinical Case

Ridge alterations following grafting of fresh extraction sockets in man. A randomized clinical trial.
Mauricio G. Araújo, João Carlos Costa da Silva, Arthur Furtado de Mendonça, Jan Lindhe

Following tooth extraction, the alveolar ridge will experience a “marked reduction” in its vertical and horizontal dimensions that will continue over time. In this randomized clinical trial, extracted tooth sites were evaluated with the control group left to spontaneously heal, whereas the test group extraction sites were grafted with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen®. This study demonstrates that the use of a biomaterial, following flapless tooth extraction, can result in the reduction of hard-tissue loss at the edentulous site.

Dr. Arndt Happe (Munster, Germany) utilizes these two products to ensure clinical success in this surgical video.

News You Can Use

After 12–14 years, implants that were placed in bones augmented with Geistlich Bio-Oss® and Geistlich Bio-Gide® showed the same survival rate as implants placed in native bone.
