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

Real Time / Dynamic Guided Surgery in Fully Edentulous Patients
Implant treatment is one of the most exciting areas of dental therapy. Within the last 30 years, we have been able to develop and discover new techniques, instruments, software and equipment that have made this therapy more secure and predictable, such as the CBCT and the guided surgery, today with the guided systems we are able to have our implants “in the right” place considering the bone, the prosthesis, the biomechanics, and the esthetics. This lecture will show you step-by-step how guided surgery has evolved in dentistry today and we can achieve more predictable results even with immediate extraction and immediate implant placement.

Interdisciplinary Team Dentistry for Total Dentofacial Esthetics
Orthodontics sets up the foundation for future prosthetics in cases with periodontal, surgical and restorative dentistry requirements. Adult orthodontics simplifies complex clinical situations. Making it easier for restorative dentist to achieve better esthetic & functional results. Orthognatic surgery combined with orthodontics corrects skeletal discrepancies in order to have the patient ready for prosthodontic replacement of multiple missing teeth. Cases combined with implants to restore form & function will further illustrate the importance of multidisciplinary dentistry. Today´s practice requires a team approach that will be presented. In order to meet the patient´s demands for better esthetics and to obtain long term occlusal stability of our results.

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

The Class III defect environment entails a vertical and horizontal deficiency in the endentulous ridge. Often, bone and soft tissue surgical procedures fall short of achieving a natural esthetic result. Alternative surgical and restorative protocols for these types of prosthetic gingival restorations are presented in this three-part series, which highlights the diagnostic and treatment aspects as well as the lab and maintenance challenges involved.
