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?

Omid Moghaddas - (7/17/2016 1:08 AM)

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

peer-emil charles-harris - (8/29/2013 4:44 AM)

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

henry salama - (8/27/2013 8:22 AM)

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.

Developing White and Pink Esthetics through Reconstructive Surgery
This lecture/video presentation describes the comprehensive treatment of a case in which we needed to reconstruct the hard and the soft tissue after the extraction of a central incisor. The video demonstrates on of several possible surgical procedures for the reconstruction of tissue defects within the esthetic zone. Specifically, a non-resorbable membrane was utilized and combined with a modification of the pedicle connective tissue graft at the same time of the extraction.

Treatment of the Mesial Concavity of Maxillary 1st Bicuspids in Comprehensive Periodontal and Restorative Cases
This video will discuss one of the most difficult areas to treat definitively, the mesial concavity of maxillary 1st bicuspids. Techniques will be evaluated whereby the surgeon can treat the cause of periodontal problems rather than the effects. A step by step presentation of removal of the concavity and the proper restoration of the post treated root surface will be shown.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2
The utilization of dental implants in the esthetic zone is a challenge for involved clinicians. With the increasing application of dental implants by non-experienced colleagues, the occurrence of esthetic failures with implant supported restorations is raising. This lecture will address the causes for such esthetic failures and the surgical approach for therapy. In most cases, implant removal is necessary, which must be done with a low-trauma technique to avoid additional bone loss. Today, this is done with special implant removal instruments using the Reverse Torque Technique. In addition, these failures are often characterized by a lack of keratinized mucosa. The current strategies for the reestablishment of keratinized mucosa and for the augmentation of missing bone, mainly on the facial aspects are presented and documented with case reports. This includes aspects of timing, surgical techniques, and the selection of appropriate biomaterials.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

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…
