As from the results of the present study, alveolar ridge augmentation and Strontium Renalate following immediate implant placement have shown to provide good primary and secondary stability (Benic et al., 2016).
In the clinic, the main approach to the treatment was the material-based reconstruction without major surgical procedures; nonetheless, the clinical concept was expanded, including stem cell-based regeneration, as a consequence of the emerging stem cell technologies and the requirements of alveolar ridge augmentation associated with implant dentistry [73].

Chin and Toth [2] were the first to report clinical usage of distraction osteogenesis for alveolar ridge augmentation. Achievement of stable, functional rehabilitation of combined osseous and soft tissue deformities represents a major achievement in reconstruction surgery.
Despite these properties, our previous studies still reported that alveolar ridge augmentation and 3-wall periodontal bone defect reconstructed by using CPC, without using a barrier membrane, were replaced by natural bone within 6 months after surgery (10), (14).
Recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF) is now used widely in bone and periodontal regeneration and treatment of gingival recession, as is recombinant human bone morphogenic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) in sinus floor reconstruction and alveolar ridge augmentation associated with extraction sockets.
