Placement of an implant in an edentulous area requires an adequate alveolar architecture that can be conserved by extraction socket preservation technique minimizing the necessity for future augmentation procedures. Use of osteobiologics such as deproteinized bovine bone, assures osteoblastic attachment, and differentiation in socket resulting in reliable bone formation. This article describes the technique utilizing xenograft with a membrane that gave successful regeneration of the deficient ridge's hard and soft tissues after 6 months posttherapy as determined clinically and radiographically. Socket preservation surgery utilizing deproteinized bovine bone with collagen membrane is an effective procedure for posterior socket preservation that aids in providing sound bone quality for successful implant placement.
