Post extraction alveolar ridge preservation is a preventive oral surgical procedure aimed to preserve the dimensions of the alveolar ridge after removal of the teeth. According to literature data, the utilization of guided bone regeneration for this purpose is absolutely justified. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of resorbable collagen membranes placed in two layers in respect to the application of membranes placed in one layer to the degree of bone regeneration after a tooth extraction. This experimental study was conducted on six adult dogs. In the first phase all four premolars were extracted on both sides in the lower jaw. After the volume-standardisation with bone drill, three post extraction alveoli were filled with bone substitute of equine origin and then covered with: collagen bioresorbable membrane of porcine origin; collagen bioresorbable membrane of equine origin; pericardial bioresorbable membrane of equine origin. The membranes on the left side were placed in single-layer and on the right side in double-layer manner. After different monitoring periods, histopathological analysis of the samples taken from the experimental regions was performed. A different degree of bone regeneration was achieved between experimental regions in which membranes were placed in one layer and those where membranes were placed in two layers. There was no difference between regions where membranes of different origin were placed in the same manner. The procedure of covering the post extraction alveoli, filled with bone substitute and with resorbable membranes placed in two layers resulted in a higher degree of bone regeneration compared to those where resorbable membranes were placed in one layer.
