As I prepare to do part 2 of the series on socket therapy, I'll try to give some of my thoughts into your question. The question of cost of regenerating in an extraction socket is in terms of dollars, bone and/or soft tissue loss or regeneration on adjacent teeth and time. We know from my own work as well as that of Drs. Sottosanti and Anson about the simple, predictable use of calcium sulfate and demineralized, freeze-dried bone for socket regeneration. They are able to maintain the calcium sulfate barrier in place more effectively than others. Over their same mix of DFDBA/CS, I use non-expanded PTFE barriers. The advantage of their technique is that there is no disruption of the interdental gingival fibers. Additionally, calcium sulfate will enable epithelialization over the top of the barrier. Other materials, pure-phase beta TCP have also been shown to be fully resorbable and replaced by vital bone in the time frame desired for implant placement, 4 - 6 months after extraction. When the socket has sufficient bone remaining, a PTFE barrier alone can be used over a blood clot with similar results. All of these techniques enable vital bone formation and the following of healing with conventional dental radiography. The use of other materials that don't lose their radio-opacity over time have been shown in animal studies to delay healing and not to allow the surgeon or restorative dentist to estimate the level of socket healing.
Growth factors - There's an alphabet city of them out there. PRF, PRGF, BMP, VEGF. Of all of these, the most expensive and best studied so far is BMP. Can we improve our predictability of socket regeneration by the use of close to $1000 worth of material as compared to DFDBA/CS? Those studies remain to and NEED to be done. There are many concerns about BMP - dosing, swelling, containment,... SO, there's no magic bullet, but many ways to skin the cat WITH biologic analysis of the results out there.

Ashwath,
A well reasoned and presented perspective. However, you left out the decision making process itself from your a,b, c list of considerations in achieving "targetted and/or desirable final results". Unfortunately, "cost" is often a factor that must be considered for most practitioners and practices. Just look at how many practitioners still choose to TP 3-unit bridges rather than an implant, even in an ideal extraction site environment. While I believe most practitioners are truly desirous of achieving this "targetted and/or desirable final results", right or wrong, limited insurance benefits, lab fees, sharing revenue with the surgeon etc... are all factors that often creep into the decision making process.
If on the other hand, a therapeutic protocol or technique is both clinically beneficial and cost effective, from a practice management perspective, then more practitioners may more readily include it in their TP considerations. Today, extraction site preservation is cost effective because most dental insurances include benefits for ridge augmentation techniques, material delivery systems are easier to use and the techniques that Dr. Horowitz outlined are more predictable and have less complications requiring fewer follow-ups.

Ashwath Gowda - (4/11/2009 10:02 PM)

You are mentioning "cost for the dentist" in preserving ridge or reconstructing a resorbed alveolar ridge... you are also implying that cost(dentist's costs) as one of the considerations in achieving "targetted and/or desirable final results"...this, with reference to the materials/supplies(grafting materials)
Comment: Let's suppose that, there exists a "magic material" (it does not exist as of to-day)costing several thousands of dollars, and it always produces nothing but the "desired results" under suitable surgicle technique and clinical approach...
don't you think that, either you and or I will be the first ones to present it to our patients? You would have produced the first such clical slide by now!... in other words, as of to-day,
A. Required knowledge (of available materials), B. Clinical/surgical skills and C. Experience/expertise of individual operator/s is entirely responsible for the final results... not the "costs" of materials including labour!

Would love to hear from some members about how they choose to manage extraction sites?
What grafting products? Immediate or delayed implant placement? Any membranes or bioactive modifiers?

Maurice Salama - (3/21/2009 2:33 PM)

Just watched the video by Dr. Horowritz on extraction site management. Outstanding job and very educational. It maybe the best buccal shelf harvest educational video I've ever seen. Dr. Pikos does a great job describing the key issues involved in this procedure. Take a look.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.
