Abstract

Soon after tooth extraction a cascade of bone remodeling starts which result in bone resorption. Procedures such Socket Seal Surgery can be employed to preserve future implant site. There are various grafts which can used for the same purpose. The best method to observe a graft’s healing is surgical re-entry and or histopathology. The aim of this Case Report is to document the use of Smartbone® xenograft for socket preservation. After 5 months of healing, histopathological core sampling revealed good osteoconduction of the graft.
