The objective of this clinical study was to assess the outcomes of autologous tooth structure in alveolar ridge preservation procedures. 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.
