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.

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 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 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.

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique
This lecture is focused on an effective regenerative approach, but at low knowledge. The goal is to provide a new skill in favor of well-established techniques. The Fibrin Sealant (FS) is an additional clot of human origin. It has adhesive, sealant and inductive action stimulating hard and soft-tissue regeneration. The FS, mixed with bone chips and biomaterials, allows a better handling of the graft that, becoming plastic and moldable, adapts perfectly to bony defects without dispersion of granules. It’s effective also on wound protection achieving a faster healing of soft-tissue. This approach is excellent in the socket preservation and in the peri-implant regeneration on "closed" sites where the implants are inside the defects.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series
To measure the buccal plate reconstruction of extraction sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects using a bone allograft in combination with an absorbable collagen membrane and a custom-healing abutment at the time of tooth removal. Implants placed into sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects demonstrated radiographic reformation of the labial plate dehiscence defect at 6 to 9 months post-treatment. The net gain in labial plate on CBCT in L1 and L2 was 3.0 mm, where 0 mm existed at pre-treatment. The minimum amount of labial plate thickness of 2.0 mm was achieved in all treated sites, evaluated radiographically at 6-9 months post-operatively, in a single procedure, without flap elevation and maintaining the gingival architecture and satisfactory esthetics.
