Objectives: This study histologically analyzed biopsy samples obtained from sites of damaged extraction socket grafting using deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) or deproteinized porcine bone mineral (DPBM) with coverage by a collagen membrane. Material and methods: One hundred patients participated in this randomized controlled clinical trial of extraction socket grafts performed in cases of periodontally compromised teeth. All participants were blinded to their group allocations, and each material was grafted with coverage by collagen membranes after extraction of the tooth and removal of granulation tissue. At implant placement at 4 months, a biopsy was harvested at the implant site using a trephine was analyzed histologically. Results: Eighty-five biopsy samples were acquired, of which 81 were finally included in the histologic analysis (42 in DBBM and 39 in DPBM group). Both DBBM and DPBM groups showed comparable proportions of residual biomaterial (12.37 ± 5.67% and 12.21 ± 5.75%, respectively), newly formed bone (15.07 ± 10.52% and 18.47 ± 11.47%, respectively), and nonmineralized tissue (72.56 ± 10.07% and 71.55 ± 15.47%, respectively). There were no significant differences in these histologic parameters between the two groups with different biomaterials. Conclusion: Comparable histologic bone formation was found in both socket grafted groups with DBBM or DPBM covered by collagen membranes in periodontally damaged extraction sockets. However, a wide variation in new bone formation was found after 4 months of postsurgical healing and a tendency of higher new bone formation was shown at damaged sockets that had an intact unilateral residual wall regardless of buccal or lingual side.
