Preservation of alveolar bone volume following tooth extraction is the need of hour as it helps facilitate succeeding placement of dental implants and improved aesthetics as well as purposeful prosthetic results. In the present study, the objectives were to evaluate periodontal conditions of teeth adjacent to extraction site clinically and to evaluate morphological contour of bone after extraction by radiographs. Twenty patients reported for extraction of a mandibular premolar or molar and subsequent single-tooth implant treatment were included in this study. The periodontal conditions of the teeth adjacent to the extraction site were assessed by measuring probing pocket depths and clinical attachment levels at the tooth surfaces mesial and distal to the extraction site using a periodontal probe. Intraoral radiographs were obtained before and after extraction. Linear measurements of IOPA were performed using tracing methods. In addition, the bone levels at mesial and distally aspects of the extraction were compared with that of adjacent teeth. Results were evaluated using standard statistical methods
