The aim of this paper is to highlight the classification and indications of different bone grafting materials and barrier membranes for everyday clinical practice of contemporary work in the field of oral surgery and periodontology. Bone resorption after tooth extraction can make the procedure of dental implantation difficult. Thus, the socket preservation concept was implemented to minimize bone resorption after tooth extraction and preserve the alveolar bone by means of different bone graft materials filled into the socket immediately after tooth extraction. Number of different growth factors are used together with graft materials. Among these are platelet rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). With the simplified technique, an autologous fibrin matrix, which contains platelets and leucocyte growth factors, is acquired.
