The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?

Description:
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. There have been several strategies employed to minimize these aesthetic problems including the dual zone grafting technique, bilaminar connective tissue grafting etc. These require the use of bone grafting materials, additional surgical site morbidity etc. and there still remains an uncertainty of the long term outcomes. The socket shield technique involves leaving behind a sliver of tooth on the facial side attached to the periodontal ligament with the intent of preserving the bundle bone. This presentation reviews some of the problems associated with immediate implant placement, the socket shield technique, and clinical cases to show the technique and its advantages.

Very nice presentation Dr. Nanayan! If the tooth is vital, I assume you make sure you removal all of the pulpal tissue? Thank you.

jaime astudillo - (3/27/2016 11:39 PM)

Excellent presentation Dr Narayan congratulations, I would like to know how are the characteristics of the bur that you use in this technique, maybe do you know if is possible found it in latino america?

Vinayak Gowda - (3/18/2016 12:32 AM)

Great presentation DrNarayan and few details including the thickness of the sheild for both ant and posteriors wether to graft the GAP and what graft would be ideal and one more imp question is does SS andPET therapies enhance bone to implant contact and does it accelerate or retard healing around implants as compared to conventional immed implants is the question again nice presentation hope to hear from and see you soon

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine Premium Member Content

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine
This 50yr.+ female showed external/internal resorption of tooth #11. Socket Shield technique was used saving the facial and interproximal of the tooth. Remainder of tooth was removed by vertically sectioning the tooth with surgical burs in 45 degree high-speed handpiece. Implant placed was a 4.6 x 15mm Tapered Plus Biohorizon implant. Mineross was mixed with saved bone and placed in gap areas. An Emax bonded Maryland bridge was then bonded to adjacent teeth for a temporary replacement. The implant, healing collar and graft were covered with PRF. Nine day post op is shown. This case will be closely followed and posted on XP.

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.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.
