Extraction Site Micro-gap and Treatment Options in Implant Therapy

Description:
In this second of an ongoing informative and clinically relevant series, Dr. Dennis Tarnow, currently Clinical Professor of Periodontology and Director of Implant Education at Columbia School of Dental Medicine, discusses extraction site management with special emphasis on the biology and clinical treatment options of the micro-gap that occurs after immediate implant placement into an extraction site. Specifically, Dr. Tarnow tries to answer such questions as what is the critical jumping distance, should we graft the micro-gap, and how should we manage the soft tissue flap in immediate extraction and implant placement.

Gabe, the literature tells us that there may be bone and osseointegration on the labial of the implant even without grafting the GAP, however, the buccal plate will remodel and we do see a general loss of bucco-lingual dimension after this modeling takes place especially when no bone grafting is done in the extraction gap. What does that mean to us in the anterior region? Well, we will have bone on the labial of the implant, but we may have a concavity in the soft tissue contour and/or, color/optic deficiencies of the soft tissue. Along with bone grafting the extraction site, a connective tissue graft is often utilized in esthetically demanding areas with thin biotypes to compensate for this possibility. Having said that, If all you're looking for is osseointegration then grafting the gap may not be absolutely necessary as long as you can protect the fibrin clot.

Wow...Does this mean no more grafting implant microgap so long as I have a buccal bone?

Robert ,its the clot that will stabilize the particulated graft materials inside the Gap.

Robert Carimi - (7/16/2016 7:23 PM)

What keeps the bone particulate from washing out around the implant if no membrane or primary closure is achieved? Dr. Tarnow showed a case where he filled in the buccal gap with particulate, placed a healing abutment and pt left with only a flipper. Thank You!

Nice proof of your hypothesis! (11/2009) What about today? (Oct-Nov 2015) Buccal socket defect >2mm+ Do you and Dr Chu treat all (most) of your non-graft (clot only) implant cases this way? What about a grafted implant case? Place a membrane for security or rely on what you've shown here? Looking forward to your response.

Nice to hear from you again .

Mohannad Al Juhaini - (9/1/2013 6:01 AM)

Thank you for a nice presentation. what would be the oral hygiene instruction in such case ? what about if by mistake a food particle got dislodged in between the implant and the bone ? what if the blood clot didn't form ? Thank you in advance

Thank you Henry, I shall continue to bone graft and connective tissue graft my anterior esthetic cases.

peer-emil, there is nothing in the literature that supports the story-line of the resorption of the buccal plate in 4 years. Having said that, the literature tells us that the buccal plate will remodel and we do see a general loss of bucco-lingual dimension after this modeling takes place especially when no bone grafting is done in the extraction gap. What does that mean to us in the anterior region? Well, we will have bone on the labial of the implant, but we may have a concavity in the soft tissue contour. Along with bone grafting the extraction site, a connective tissue graft is often utilized in esthetically demanding areas to compensate for this possibility.

The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It?
In this video, a free gingival graft is demonstrated to address a recession defect as well as to augment the soft tissue while eliminating the high frenum pull in order to aid in the orthodontic treatment plan of a young patient. While commonly shunned for the morbidity associated with palatal grafts, the free gingival graft is making a comeback with the popularity of implant dentistry due to it's relative simplicity and predictability for augmenting thin tissue. This "back to basics" video takes the free gingival graft back to its roots: The lower incisor area.

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…
