With the demand for tooth/gum aesthetics in implant-supported rehabilitations, the surgeon, whether an implant specialist or not, increasingly needs to be mindful of proper care for socket preservation following extraction. The paper presented here reports the case of a male patient who manifested dental impairment of the Upper Left First Molar (tooth #26) (in FDI notation); following tomographic analysis and after reaching a consensus with the patient, the decision was made to extract said tooth and preserve the socket for subsequent implant placement. The aim of the case report is to present a clinical case of alveolar ridge preservation through the “Double Layer Socket Preservation” technique, a technique created by Barry Barthee, whereby a xenogenous graft under an xenogenous type III collagen membrane was combined with a polypropylene barrier. Following research and study results on the subject, it was concluded that by applying this technique, the alveolar ridge is greatly preserved and bone volume is maintained, both of which are very important factors for good health of the tissues surrounding the implant and consequent increase in the survival of the implant itself.
