BACKGROUND: Dental extraction is defined as tooth or teeth removal from the alveolar bone (socket), it is considered one of the most common daily dental procedures that may be due to presence of severe decay, trauma or mobility from periodontal diseases. There are morphological changes in alveolar bone after tooth extraction making the restoration of the missing tooth by fixed prosthodontic denture or implant very questionable and challenging. Narrower and shorter ridge are the results of the post extraction alveolar bone resorption process. This article focuses on the effect of using two types of socket preservation materials at the same time on the healing process of the soft tissue and alveolar bone and the differences between using two materials and single material.
METHODS: Obtaining platelet rich-fibrin (PRF) from a centrifuged blood sample and using the autogenous tooth particles as a bone substitute after the tooth grinding by special device which is called tooth grinder. These two materials will be used at the same time for socket preservation.
RESULTS: According to the mechanisms of action and recent studies, the using of these two materials at the same time for socket preservation will reduce postextraction adverse effects. A very promising results will be obtained in addition to the availability, simplicity, cost effectiveness and ease of handling of these materials.
CONCLUSIONS: The future of tissue engineering, innovation of new repairing and grafting materials is very promising. Patient`s own teeth and blood can be used as a repairing and grafting materials in different tissue defects which their beneficial effect is maximized.

KEY WORDS: Platelet-rich fibrin; Tooth socket; Tissue preservation
