Alveolar atrophy following tooth extraction remains a challenge for future dental implant placement. Immediate implant placement and post extraction alveolar preservation are 2 methods that are used to prevent significant post extraction bone loss. Immediate extraction site grafting is a simple and straightforward procedure.
Purpose: To determine the efficiency of Resorb β Tricalcium phosphate (βTCP)bone graft material in preservation alveolar bone after tooth extraction.
Materials and Method: Thirty Patients requiring tooth extraction and alveolar bone regeneration for the resulting bone defects by Resorb β TCP(Bone Medik –DM Bone, Biphasic Calcium Phosphate ,Synthetic Resorbable material Si-HA (60%):β –TCP(40%)bone graft material were included in this study.
Results: Histopathological examination of the biopsy specimen showed new bone deposition. Radio graphical radio densities of the regenerated bone were evident in treated sockets during the follow up period. Statistical analysis indicated that the healing percentage was 70%-80% in 13 patients and the main among 25-35 age group.
Conclusions: Resorb β Tricalcium bone graft material was successful material in reconstruction of bone defects following tooth extraction when compared with other graft materials.
