Device: Alveolar Bone Defect Regeneration Following Tooth Extraction
Patients underwent surgery under local anesthesia and minimally invasive periotomy was carried out with a surgical blade. Atraumatic extraction with forceps was performed. The extraction socket was carefully curetted to remove the granulation tissue and was rinsed with a physiologic solution. To evaluate the eligibility of the surgical site, the alveolar walls integrity was checked clinically and by means of extemporaneous peri-apical radiography.
Then, the socket was filled to the bone margin with Inion BioRestore™ (granules size 1 to 2 millimetres). Finally, single interrupted (5-0) sutures were tightened to promote the stability of grafted particles. Ten days after the surgery, sutures were removed.
