Healing Dynamics Following Alveolar Ridge Preservation with Autologous Tooth Structure
Ziv Mazor, DMD/Robert A. Horowitz, DDS/Hari Prasad, MS/Georgios A. Kotsakis, DDS, MS

The use of dentin as a bone graft is not a new concept; however, it has been challenged as a generally accepted practice. During the past decade, multiple reports have expanded our knowledge in this area. The current report provides histologic core specimens at various timepoints. Extraction sites were grafted with autologous tooth structure prepared from the extracted teeth, and histologic samples were obtained at varying intervals to allow observation of bone-healing dynamics over time. Grafted areas were occupied by dentin particles that had begun to connect via bridges of woven bone at 3 months posthealing, and vital bone was in direct contact with residual particles with no inflammatory infiltrate. Further clinical investigation is warranted on the comparative effectiveness of autologous tooth structure against established bone-substitute biomaterials.
