Socket seal of anterior alveole in late implant placement

Aim: Preservation of hard and soft-tissue volume after extraction in the anterior region for late implant placement.

Conclusion: Volume preservation of hard and soft tissue after tooth extraction is important to prevent extensive guided  bone regeneration procedures at implant placement. With this minimally invasive procedure, the volume of hard and soft tissue can be better preserved with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Mucograft®, respectively, compared to  spontaneous healing.1
