Studies have shown that tooth extraction results in loss of bone volume, which compromises dental implant placement. Prevention of site collapse at the time of extraction is recommended. In this 4-month case series, 40 patients were treated with an innovative biphasic calcium sulfate graft, demonstrating its ability to preserve or augment socket volume and resorb in the time period desired between extraction and implant placement. Some representative samples were retrieved at the time of implant placement and evaluated histologically and morphometrically for vital bone formation.
