BACKGROUND Intrasocket reactive soft tissue can be used for primary closure during augmentation of infected extraction sites exhibiting severe bone loss prior to implant placement. The present study evaluated the histological characteristics of the initially used intrasocket reactive soft tissue, the overlying soft tissue, and the histomorphometry of the newly formed bone during implant placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-six consecutive patients (43 sites) were included in the study… CONTINUE READING
