Efficacy Evaluation of a New Buccal Bone Plate Preservation Technique: A Pilot Study

Federico Brugnami, DDS/Alfonso Caiazzo, DDS

PMID: 21365028
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0956

Twenty extraction sockets in 16 patients were included in this study. Ten were treated with buccal plate preservation (BPP, test group), which consisted of placing a bone graft overlying the buccal plate in a surgically created pouch, and 10 were left untreated (control). Pre- and postoperative differences in buccolingual dimension at the midpoint of the extraction area were calculated using study casts. Statistically significant differences were found between the test group (mean, 0.85 0.75 mm) and control group (mean, 0.9 0.65 mm, P < .5). Clinically, BPP after extraction may help to maintain or augment the soft tissue appearance compared to nontreatment. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2011;31:6773.)
