Preparing the Bony Bed: Socket Grafting with TCP Bone Graft, Innovations for Tomorrow's Radiant Smiles

Dr. Lanka Mahesh | Dr. Saurabh Juneja | Dr. Zara Dhawan

Abstract: After extraction of tooth the catabolic process of bone remodeling that takes place, eventually leading to quantitative as well as qualitative changes in the bone. These changes result in some amount of bone resorption at the site of tooth extraction. The clinical procedure that involves grafting bone substitutes into tooth extraction sockets is based on the rationale that the dimensional changes of the alveolar ridge that happen post tooth extraction can be reduced by addition of bone graft substitutes that provide a scaffold to the newly formed bone. Grafting at the site of tooth extraction is a must, when immediate implant is not feasible, because loss of bone not only affects future implant placement but also causes esthetic as well as functional issues is the replacement.
