A Complete Check on the Soft Tissue and Hard Tissue of Patients Undergoing Socket Preservation-A Retrospective Hospital Based Analysis
The aim of this retrospective study is to evaluate the preoperative and postoperative bone dimension and soft tissue change in patients undergoing socket preservation in a private dental hospital setup. A retrospective study was done in which 152 patients who underwent socket preservation from 1 September 2019 till 1 March 2020 were included. Data was reviewed from the patient’s records and analysed the data of 152 from June 2019 and March 2020 that were documented in a private institution. The data censored was collected by recalling the patient and reviewing. A retrospective study was done to identify the patients that underwent socket preservation procedure in a private hospital dental set up and the difference in bone gain attained was evaluated from pre and post cbcts and wound healing and primary stability, suturing technique used was also evaluated. Statistical analysis was performed using the Paired t test to assess the difference between the pre and post bone volume. Mean pre and post height and width was seen in post socket preservation was 0.47 ± 0.52, 0.35 ± 0.39 respectively. The association between the wound healing and suture technique; primary stability and the graft used was significant. Bio-os showed marked difference when compared to other graft material used. Within the limitations of the study, there was a statistical significant difference between the pre and post CBCT for the patient who underwent socket preservation. There was better healing with patients who had thick gingival biotype and when simple interrupted sutures were given. The primary stability of the site was more when grafted with Bio-oss.
