I am doing a lot of socket preservations these days and wanted to get some opinions on using a collagen plug vs a membrane. What do you do in these scenarios?
1. Significant buccal plate resorption; NO flap needed to extract. Do you graft with a collagen plug on top, or are you reflecting a flap at that time so you can place a barrier membrane? It seems as if the soft tissue should be able to contain the graft on the buccal, since no flap was needed, hence no need to reflect and place a membrane?
2. Significant buccal plate resorption; FLAP needed to extract. Barrier membrane sounds reasonable here.
What do you do in these two situations?
