After dental extraction, the corresponding alveolar bone suffers remodeling, and the bone volume decreases as time goes by, becoming atrophic. The Bio-Oss® is a biomaterial which presents similar crystallinity and chemical composition to the mineral natural bone, and it acts as a framework due to its osteoconductive properties. The objective of this study is to evaluate, through a literature review and a case report, the efficiency of the biomaterial Bio Oss® regarding the alveolar maintenance for the rehabilitation with osseointegrated implants after dental extraction. The atraumatic extraction of the teeth 11 and 21 was performed in a male patient, and after that, the respective alveoli were filled with the biomaterial Bio Oss®. Two and a half months after the dental extraction and the filling with Bio Oss®, a new surgical procedure for the installation of the osseointegrated implants was performed. It was possible to observe through tomograpic image that the alveoli of the teeth 11 and 21 were completely filled with mineralized tissue. We can conclude that the biomaterial Bio Oss® is efficient for the preservation of the alveolar bone after dental extraction, acting as a framework for the bone neoformation for a later installation of osseointegrated implants.
