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.

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 Shield Preparation: An Oral Surgeon's Perspective
Periodontists and general practisioners are used on working with high speed, whereas oral surgeons are used to preparing hard tissue utilizing a straight handpiece. One can object that a straight handpiece is causing more vibrations and may dyslodge the shield. However, in our experience (myself:>300 socket shield procedures, Richard Martin, Michael Pikos) it works very well. This is not recommendation for the periodontists and GP to start to prepare socket shield utilizing a straight handpiece, but the explanatory video for oral and maxillo-facial surgeons used on a straight handpiece.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

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.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
