Bovine sponge amnion (BSA) is made from bovine amniotic membrane, which contains several growth factors with the ability to suppress inflammation and stimulate the healing process. The healing process of the socket is clinically marked by the proliferation of fibroblasts, formation of new blood vessels, and closure of the wound site. Fibroblasts and new blood vessels are the common histological indicators of tissue regeneration. Twenty-four lower anterior teeth were extracted from the rats. The socket was then applied with BSA and sutured, while a control group was only sutured. The animals were scarified 3, 7, and 14 days after application, and the mandibular was isolated. Histological analysis of socket tissue used the staining of hematoxylin and eosin to analyze the new blood vessels and fibroblasts. An independent t-test was used to analyze the fibroblasts and new blood vessels in each group, with P < 0.05 considered as significant. The number of fibroblasts is higher in the BSA group compared others groups at 3, 7, and 14 days (P < 0.05). The new blood vessel count is higher compared to the control group at only 3 and 7 days (P < 0.05). BSA aids the regeneration of the socket after tooth extraction by stimulating fibroblast proliferation and formation of new blood vessels.
