Demonstration of Radiographic Bone Fill in Postextraction Sockets Using a Novel Implant-Site Development Technique: A Retrospective Comparative Case Series
Molnár, Bálint / Deutsch, Tibor / Marton, Rita / Orbán, Kristóf / Martin, Anna / Windisch, Peter
The objective of this study was to compare the novel extraction-site development (XSD) technique with spontaneous healing. Advanced alveolar defects (extraction defect sounding, classes 3 and 4) at 33 single-rooted teeth were treated by XSD (test), and 21 extraction sites of single-rooted teeth were left for spontaneous healing (control). In pre- and postoperative cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) data sets, orovestibular and vertical socket dimensions were assessed, as were socket areas. XSD resulted in complication-free healing with significantly higher radiographic bone fill compared to spontaneous healing. Application of the XSD approach may reduce the need for augmentative procedures during implant placement.
