Introduction: Primary closure is the most important step following tooth extraction. Primary closure using cut back incision technique helps in preserving the bone graft in socket and to preserve it in their desired position.
Aim: To assess the healing outcome with and without cut back incision technique in adult population for the purpose of socket preservation at baseline, 1 week and 4 weeks.
Material and Methods: In this single blinded randomized controlled trial forty-two sites were planned for extraction with bone augmentation and were randomly divided. In group 1 sockets were preserved using cutback incision technique and in group 2 sockets were grafted without cutback incision technique. Clinical standardized measurements were used to assess the dimensional alterations of the extraction socket. Various non-parametric tests have been used for comparisons.
Results: Intergroup comparison showed statistical higher difference on Pain on VAS (p >0.00 6) and KGW (p 0.039) at 1 week and primary healing showed no significant results at all time intervals.
Conclusion: The present finding concluded that use of cutback incision technique enhances primary closure and the socket seal of the extraction site with minimal pain, morbidity and low cost.
