Aim: This aimed to evaluate a new bone formation and to provide a single-stage treatment, i.e., extraction of tooth followed by autogenous dentin demineralized (ADDM) graft in the same extraction socket (ES) – for adult patients who require tooth extraction. Materials and Methods: Two hundred teeth extractions were performed to investigate the efficacy of ADDM graft in the formation of new bone. After demineralization of dentin graft parameters such as exposure of graft, any signs of infections/pus/exudates, pain, and bone density were evaluated. Results: On follow-up, exposure of graft was recorded in five sockets at 1 month and infection was recorded in four sockets. Pain was significantly high at postoperative day 1 and least with 3rd and 6th months. There was a highly significant bone formation (P < 0.01, 0.05) in the ES group at various time intervals, while there were no significant differences in the adjacent bone group. Conclusion: Using ADDM graft in providing a single-stage treatment plan, i.e., extraction of tooth followed by autogenous demineralized dentin graft in the same ES in adult patients – is an alternative for the immediate reconstruction of alveolar bone defects to facilitate the future prosthesis. It also saves the cost of other graft materials which are commercially available in market for the patient and also reduces the infective dental waste globally.
