Figure 4: The scaffolds were well integrated in the alveolar bone, and the TiO2 scaffold was not found to interfere with the normal healing sequence of the extraction socket (a–d). In few isolated instances (2/11), small portion of the scaffold was exposed above the newly formed bone (e), while the loss of ridge height at a sham site is shown in (f).
