This clinical case report describes and demonstrates the successful use of calcium phosphate cement (CPC) in conjunction with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for postextraction socket grafting in maxillary right first premolar area. CPC can be molded to form a scaffold. It has been used previously for regeneration in intrabony defects, but very few clinical studies in humans have reported its use for socket grafting. In this report, we have presented a novel use of CPC in conjunction with PRF for ridge preservation after tooth extraction.
