  journal={Clinical Oral Implants Research},
OBJECTIVE Two focused questions were addressed within this systematic review. Q1) What is the effect of alveolar ridge preservation on linear and volumetric alveolar site dimensions, keratinised measurements, histological characteristics and patient-based outcomes when compared to unassisted socket healing. Q2) What is the size effect of these outcomes in three different types of intervention (guided bone regeneration, socket grafting and socket seal). MATERIALS AND METHODS An electronic…

Effect of alveolar ridge preservation interventions following tooth extraction: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

The results of a pooled quantitative analysis revealed that ARP via socket grafting (ARP-SG), as compared to tooth extraction alone, prevents horizontal ridge preservation and whether there is a superior ARP or SS approach could not be determined on the basis of the selected evidence.

The Influence of Different Grafting Materials on Alveolar Ridge Preservation: a Systematic Review

The utilization of a bone grafting material for alveolar ridge preservation reduces the resorption process occurring after tooth extraction, however, minimal differences in Resorption rate were observed between allogeneic, xenogeneic and alloplastic grafting materials.

Soft tissue dimensional changes after alveolar ridge preservation using different sealing materials: a systematic review and network meta-analysis

NMA confirmed that the use of crosslinked collagen membranes and autogenous soft tissue grafts represented the best choices for sealing sockets during ARP in terms of minimizing post-extraction soft tissue dimensional shrinkage.

Combination of bone graft and resorbable membrane for alveolar ridge preservation: A systematic review, meta‐analysis, and trial sequential analysis

Use of bone graft covered by a resorbable membrane can decrease the rate of alveolar ridge horizontal and vertical resorption after tooth extraction and the power and reliability of the evidence is strong enough to confirm the above-mentioned findings.

Post-extraction Dimensional Changes: A Systematic Review & Meta-analysis.

A variable amount of alveolar bone resorption occurs after unassisted socket healing depending on tooth type, as well as clinical vs radiographic measurements, location and location.

Comparative assessment of anterior maxillary alveolar ridge preservation with and without adjunctive use of enamel matrix derivative: a randomized clinical trial.

ARP with the adjunctive use of EMD reduced the durations of postoperative pain and swelling following maxillary anterior teeth extraction and treatment with alveolar ridge preservation.

Alveolar ridge preservation using an open membrane approach for sockets with bone deficiency: A randomized controlled clinical trial

ARP with a d‐PTFE membrane and freeze‐dried irradiated allogenic bone substitute reduced horizontal bone resorption in sockets with bone deficiency.

Effect of alveolar ridge preservation on clinical attachment level at adjacent teeth: A randomized clinical trial.

Although ARP with DBBM-C revealed a trend toward CAL gain and PD reduction at adjacent teeth of extraction sites, these adjunctive benefits seem to be clinically negligible.

Ridge preservation techniques to avoid invasive bone reconstruction: A systematic review and meta-analysis: Naples Consensus Report Working Group C.

PURPOSE To analyse and compare the dimensional changes of unassisted extraction sockets with alveolar ridge preservation (ARP) techniques and investigate any factors that impact the resorption of the

Socket preservation for dental implant site development A randomized controlled clinical trial

Socket preservation following posterior teeth extraction using either allograft or xenograft did not significantly influence socket width change, but the use ofallograft can significantly decrease mid vertical height reduction compared with unassisted socket healing, and there is no clear guidelines supported by evidence to recommend a specific biomaterial to be used.



Does ridge preservation following tooth extraction improve implant treatment outcomes: a systematic review: Group 4: Therapeutic concepts & methods.

There is limited evidence to support the clinical benefit of ARP over USH in improving implant-related outcomes despite a decrease in the need for further ridge augmentation during implant placement.

Alterations in bone quality after socket preservation with grafting materials: a systematic review.

Based on a limited number of prospective comparative studies, the use of grafting materials for socket augmentation might change the proportion of vital bone in comparison to sockets allowed to heal without grafting.

Bone healing after tooth extraction with or without an intervention: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials.

Overall the socket intervention therapies did reduce alveolar ridge dimensional changes post-extraction, but were unable to prevent resorption, which may account for some of the difference in alveolars ridge dimensions at follow up.

Alveolar ridge preservation. A systematic review

Post-extraction resorption of the AR might be limited, but cannot be eliminated by ARP, which at histological level does not always promote new bone formation.

A systematic review of post-extractional alveolar hard and soft tissue dimensional changes in humans.

Human re-entry studies showed horizontal bone loss of 29-63% and vertical bone Loss of 11-22% after 6 months following tooth extraction, which demonstrated rapid reductions in the first 3-6 months that was followed by gradual reductions in dimensions thereafter.

A systematic review assessing soft tissue augmentation techniques.

APF/V is a successful treatment concept to increase the width of keratinized tissue or attached gingiva around teeth and only limited data are available favoring SCTGs over FGGs for soft tissue volume augmentation.

Ridge alterations following grafting of fresh extraction sockets in man. A randomized clinical trial.

The placement of a xenograft in fresh extraction sockets markedly counteracted the reduction in the hard tissue component of the edentulous sites.

A prospective, randomized, controlled, multicenter evaluation of extraction socket preservation comparing two bovine xenografts: clinical and histologic outcomes.

This investigation provides support for the efficacy of bovine bone xenograft for socket preservation when subsequent implant placement is planned.

Ridge preservation techniques for implant therapy.

It was concluded that ridge preservation procedures are effective in limiting horizontal and vertical ridge alterations in postextraction sites and there is no evidence to support the superiority of one technique over another.

Alveolar ridge preservation with guided bone regeneration and a synthetic bone substitute or a bovine-derived xenograft: a randomized, controlled clinical trial.

Both biomaterials partially preserved the width and the interproximal bone height of the alveolar ridge.
