Alveolar bone resorption will occur in 40–60% within three months after tooth extraction. Socket preservation is performed to reduce the occurrence of alveolar bone resorption for successful implant restoration. One of the successes of implant restoration is in the quality and quantity of alveolar bone. The combination of the bovine amniotic membrane and hydroxyapatite is expected to be a candidate for socket preservation material. This review article aimed at explaining the potential of bovine amniotic membrane and hydroxyapatite that can act as biocomposite materials for socket preservation to enhance bone formation.
