The alveolar socket is lined with bundle bone, which is supplied with nutrients by the periodontium and therefore resorbs after tooth extraction. In the case of a thin buccal bone type, the whole buccal wall may resorb. To maintain the volume of the alveoli, bone grafting material can be applied. Thus, enabling a stable implant placement later and improving the aesthetic outcome of the final prosthesis. As the implantation is scheduled within 10–16 weeks following extraction in a delayed implantation approach, allogeneic material such as maxgraft® granules are the best choice due to the fast osseous regeneration and complete remodeling potential. If the bony walls are intact the application of a barrier membrane is not necessarily needed. However, membranes (e.g., Jason® membrane, collprotec® membrane, permamem®) and fleece (Jason® fleece) are frequently used to prevent the migration of bone graft particles.
