The Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique (RST) for Pontic Site Enhancement part 1

Description:
By maintaining the natural tooth root through the root submergence technique (RST) we are better able to preserve a much greater amount of surrounding tissue than the more commonly used socket preservation technique. RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and creates a more esthetic result in multiple tooth replacement cases.

I so much enjoy going to back to basics!! Thank you Maurice for everything you have done for our profession.

Ahmed; No, not in the same way as a tooth because no supracrestal fibers with an implant but yes, you can do a Submerged Implant Technique SIT, it just would work less effectively than with a tooth. Thanks for the post. Dr. Salama

RST is very attractive concept, thank you for the great details
I was wondering, if there was fractured one-piece dental implant covered with healthy keratinized gingival and good bone support.
Is leaving fractured implant in such place where a treatment plan to place a pontic works similar to RST in natural teeth in alveolar bone preservation??

This is simply a great CONCEPT Dr. Salama and that you can perform it with VITAL roots is amazing. REAL TRUE and COMPLETE Ridge Preservation!!! thank you Band

I have a question on the sequence of your anterior lateral eruption case.I know you placed an implant in the #8 site for the ortho anchorage. But could you not have just placed brackets on the 6 anteriors and not place the implant until later? I would have thought that once you have the mesial bone at the ideal position on #7, placing the implant with hard and soft grafts would be more predictable. Great presentation by the way!

maurice,

for the roll technique from mod 2 do you do a horizontal split thickness incision on the buccal and two vertical incisions to bone right? do you have a video on xp of this?

Maurice Salama - (5/1/2012 9:32 AM)

As an update on root submerge nice. We continue to have excellent long term results! Also, vital teeth have performed very well. Dr. S

Maurice Salama - (5/13/2010 5:25 AM)

Yitzchak; Thanks. There is a risk of eruption of the root if there is no keratinized tissue covering it and a pontic with contact on the gingiva. As for cutting root, we want to cut it roughly 1mm above the bone and we perform this sometimes without a flap utilizing diamond burs and magnification. Hemostasis is key to allow visualization.
Good luck
Dr. S

Maurice! brilliant idea as allways.. 2 ques. 1. isn't there any risk of that root trying to erupt in the future? 2. could you describe in a few words how you cut to bone level without raising a flap? thanks! Yitzchak

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment Premium Member Content

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

CT-Derived Model-Based Surgery for Immediate Loading of Maxillary Anterior Implants
A novel approach to predict implant placement utilizing CT-derived model-based surgery was performed for a maxillary-anterior aesthetic immediate extraction/immediate restoration; root proximity and inter-implant positioning was an additional complication. The use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatmentplanning tools described in this article has been shown to be effective for both partial and completely edentulous patient presentations. These tools can serve as a foundation for accurate, highly practical, and repeatable CT-scan–derived modelbased presurgical prosthetic planning for the immediate loading of dental implants.
