Following tooth extraction ridge preservation procedure have been suggested to limit bone resorptive dimensional changes to facilitate prospective implant placement. While this is particularly true for anterior teeth, no evidence is available to establish clinical guidelines in posterior sites, i.e. following molar extraction.
This research project will answer the following question:
What are the dimensional changes of the hard and soft tissues encountered following molar extractions with and without ridge preservation?

Inadequate ridge width to allow implant placement, it noted that when extraction takes place and ridge preservation is not utilized the site of extraction could lose 40% to 60% of bone hei...
The purpose of this study is to compare two barrier membrane products, Cytoplast (dPTFE) and BioXclude (human amnion chorion allograft), for their relative efficacies in dental socket pres...
Purpose of the single arm study is to clinically and histologically evaluate alloplastic in-situ hardening, moldable beta-tricalcium phosphate(TCP) bone graft material and polylactide memb...
This study is being conducted to compare the outcomes of two separate surgical techniques used in tooth extraction and ridge preservation. Ridge preservation is done to potentially minimiz...
The amount of hard tissue resorption following tooth extraction involves prosthetically driven implant placement; therefore, the development of ridge preservation techniques that result in...
Alveolar ridge preservation procedures have been shown to significantly reduce the loss of ridge dimension of an extraction socket. As of yet, none of the alveolar ridge preservation techniques have b...
The aim of this randomized, controlled, parallel-arm study was to evaluate the (1) radiographic bone dimensional changes, (2) postoperative discomfort, and (3) early soft tissue wound healing outcomes...
To determine the effect of alveolar ridge preservation (ARP) in molar sites without primary flap closure.
The objective of this clinical study was to assess the outcomes of autologous tooth structure in alveolar ridge preservation procedures. Extraction sites were grafted with autologous tooth structure p...
To evaluate the shear bond strength between denture base and artificial teeth subjected to five different modifications on the ridge surface.
The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth.

Therapeutic closure of spaces caused by the extraction of teeth, the congenital absence of teeth, or the excessive space between teeth.
The part of a denture that overlies the soft tissue and supports the supplied teeth and is supported in turn by abutment teeth or the residual alveolar ridge. It is usually made of resins or metal or their combination.
The loss of calcium salts from bones and teeth. Bacteria may be responsible for this occurrence in teeth. Old age may be a factor contributing to calcium loss, as is the presence of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
The movement of teeth into altered positions in relationship to the basal bone of the ALVEOLAR PROCESS and to adjoining and opposing teeth as a result of loss of approximating or opposing teeth, occlusal interferences, habits, inflammatory and dystrophic disease of the attaching and supporting structures of the teeth.
