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.

Maurice Salama - (7/17/2014 4:52 PM)

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

Implant Esthetics: Recognizing Pitfalls and How to Avoid Problems
In this Webinar on Implant Esthetics, Dr Stanley describes the "No Half Smiles" philosophy that he practices. An emphasis is placed on both the clinical and technical requirements necessary for delivering consistent successful esthetic results in everyday practice. In addition, several techniques are demonstrated to make patient management through this process more efficient. As Dr. Stanley states" the challenges of getting it right are many but avoiding complications is vital to the success of our daily practice.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla
Since the advent of osseointegration, the patient who is edentulous or soon to be edentulated has many options to prevent wearing complete removable prosthesis. In the maxillary arch there are anatomical features that may preclude patients successfully utilizing an implant prosthesis. Some of these include alveolar resorptive changes after extractions, pnuematized sinuses, hard and soft tissue palatal vault configurations, and bone exostosis with associated undercuts. Psychological, many patients suffer after the loss of teeth with loss of self-esteem and avoidance behaviors. This program will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures of the All On Four patient. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the maxilla.

The Bio-Derm Ridge Plumping Technique for Pontic Site Development
Seibert Class III apicocoronal and buccolingual alveolar ridge defects with associated gingival mucosal atrophy and absence of interdental papillae are common in edentulous areas within the anterior esthetic zone of the maxilla. Normal emergence profiles, critical to achieving esthetic restorations, require restoration of normal hard and soft tissue morphology, including re-establishment of adjacent interdental papillae.

Computer-Generated Abutment Using A Coded Healing Abutment: A Two-Year Preliminary Report
This article presents a preliminary clinical evaluation following the placement of 107 dental implants covered with computer-coded healing abutments. The healing abutment system evaluated herein provided information to specific computer software that facilitated the delivery of an anatomical definitive abutment. This system also assisted in the development of a titanium abutment whose characteristics mimicked the natural contours of the teeth being replaced. A two-year postoperative evaluation was performed to evaluate occlusion, gingival integrity, contact areas, inflammation, food impaction, porcelain integrity, radiographic condition and overall patient satisfaction. Improved tissue response and resultant aesthetics were observed.

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants
When treatment with dental implants is indicated, an accurate diagnosis must be made to evaluate the clinical parameters and determine the optimal time for immediate or delayed (ie, early or late) implant placement and loading following tooth extraction. It is also important to identify complications and their implications on the aesthetic outcome.1 This article explains behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant, evaluates the timing of implant placement after extraction, and reviews various parameters that influence tissue marginal remodeling.
