 Alveolar ridge preservation (ARP) techniques have become increasingly important in modern dentistry, aiming to maintain bone volume and architecture following tooth extraction. This study focuses on conducting a biomechanical analysis of various alveolar ridge preservation techniques to evaluate their effectiveness in preserving the structural integrity of the alveolar ridge.

A systematic review of the literature was conducted to identify studies that employed biomechanical analyses to evaluate different ARP techniques. Parameters such as bone density, bone quality, bone-implant interface strength, and stress distribution were examined.

The findings reveal that ARP techniques, including socket preservation with bone grafts, guided bone regeneration, and the use of growth factors, contribute to the preservation of bone density and quality in the alveolar ridge. Biomechanical analyses demonstrate improved bone-implant interface strength and more favorable stress distribution patterns in preserved ridges compared to non-preserved sites.

Furthermore, advancements in biomaterials and surgical techniques have led to the development of ARP methods that enhance biomechanical stability and facilitate successful implant placement. However, challenges such as variability in bone healing and potential complications associated with graft materials were also identified.

The study emphasizes the importance of biomechanical analyses in evaluating the efficacy and long-term stability of ARP techniques. Understanding the biomechanical principles underlying these techniques is crucial for optimizing treatment outcomes and minimizing complications in implant dentistry.
