The purpose of this study is to document and evaluate how protective covering materials (a barrier membrane called OSSIX-Plus) can help preserve bone size after a tooth is removed. As you know by now, dental implants can only be placed when enough bone is found and this protective covering may help the healing of your bone after the tooth is removed. For this study, the investigators are asking that records taken during procedures (pictures of teeth only, notes) can be used for publications.
