Post-Surgical Clinical Monitoring of Soft Tissue Wound Healing in Periodontal and Implant Surgery
Wound healing monitoring after the surgery is an important concern in dentistry. It has been extensively studied in the past, both in animals and in humans, and several studies have recently been carried out to review all knowledge about clinical and histological features of uncomplicated oral wound healing. However, no indications have been comprehensively reported on how wound healing monitoring should be performed after specific surgical procedures. The aim of the present study is to therefore highlight how the healing process of the most common periodontal and dental implant procedures should be managed and which signs and symptoms more commonly occur after surgery.

Bone grafting after tooth removal: Why, when, and what to use
Scott Froum, DD
Although unpredictable, a greater amount of alveolar ridge loss following extraction usually occurs in the horizontal dimension and affects the buccal bone of the ridge.3 In fact, 50% of alveolar bone dimension can be lost after tooth extraction, with losses reported of up to 6–7 mm (figure 1). Two-thirds of this loss of bone volume can occur within the first three months of tooth extraction.
