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.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations Premium Member Content

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

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.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

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.
