Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?

Description:
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “ problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

How long time it is necessary to use provisional crown in the esthetic zone after tooth extraction + ss + implant+ Immediate loading? The time between the placement of a temporary crown and Individual impression of the gingival for final crwn. The time differs from that of technician socket reservation ?

Great conclusion, Jorge!

Where can I get copies of articles you mention regarding ridge with stability? thanks James

Jorge Campos - (5/7/2017 2:05 PM)

George, I´ve been doing this for 4 years and I´m very gratefull for the outcomes. The biology explanations tell us that we have to STOP extracting to obtain a better results. Please, check your own cases at 4 to 5 years on a CBCT, you´ll see how much bone you have lost!. Regards

Jorge Campos - (5/7/2017 2:02 PM)

Richard, as you told, by a tactile sensation. Once you are inside the root you perfectly notice when you are moving out. Bone is softer than tooth. Once you do few you notice perfectly. Regards

Enrique, you cant prevent about soft tissue invasion. The same happens with immediate implants. There is a 2or 3 mm. of soft tissue integration around the neck of your implant. This is not an issue. When you insert the implant closer to the shield, sometimes in contact,you don´t get the soft tissue invasion. Regards

George; Can you explain why you choose to be a late adapter to this technique? What are your primary concerns? Thanks Mo

George Duello - (4/27/2017 3:12 PM)

Jorge, Thanks for sharing-I'm going to be a late adapter on this technique but I appreciate your passion and biologic explanation. George

ENRIQUE TREVINO - (4/26/2017 12:08 PM)

Jorge, I have a question for You, when You do Flap-less technique, how do You prevent soft tissue from occupying the space between the implant and the shield? with granulomatose tissue. Is that an issue? Thank You for Your great presentation. ET from Juarez, Mexico

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier
Buccopalatal collapse of the postextraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in the literature. A slightly different approach, "PET" is to use the tooth itself by purposely maintaining all or a portion of the root in the remaining socket. Root submergence has been reported in the literature for more than 4 decades, and it has been demonstrated that the submerged tooth root retains the periodontal tissues and preserves the bone in pontic sites or below dentures to retain the ridge. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section to remain behind on the labial aspect simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results that are highly promising to esthetic implant treatment.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.
