Socket preservation and reconstruction: A case report with follow up of 9 months

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Smriti Kanwar, Dr. Arvind Shetty, Dr. Devanand Shetty and Dr. Pooja Wadkar
ABSTRACT:Progressive bone resorption after extraction of tooth may lead to prosthetic-driven and surgical difficulties when a dental implant has to be placed after extraction of tooth. This case report discusses an irreparable upper right first premolar with a dehiscence on buccal wall. A conservative tooth extraction was performed and the dehiscence was exposed after reflecting a full thickness mucoperiosteal flap. The socket and the dehiscence were then grafted using Nova bone putty and amnion membrane. After a healing period of 3 months and 9 months a CBCT analysis was done to check for regeneration in the grafted site. It can be concluded that grafting technique can lessen the alveolar bone resorption in the socket with dehiscence.
