(b) Sixty-one days after the extractions, sockets of the first molar and second premolar were mostly covered with soft tissue (arrow), whereas the socket of the third molar was not covered (arrowhead). (c) Seventy-five days after the extractions, sockets of the first molar and second premolar were almost completely covered with soft tissue (arrow), but the socket of the third molar was only slightly covered (arrowhead). (d) One hundred and seventeen days after extractions, sockets of the first molar and second premolar were completely covered with soft tissue (arrow). However, the socket of the third molar was only partially covered (arrowhead). (e).
