The Submerged Root Technique “RST”: A Clinical Case and Video Series

Description:
By maintaining the natural tooth root through the root submergence technique (RST) we are better able to preserve a much greater amount of surrounding tissue than the more commonly used socket preservation technique. RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth root in the pontic site which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and creates a more esthetic result in multiple tooth replacement cases. In this Case Report and Video, the concept and surgical technique are highlighted in detail including a video of the actual submergence and graft as well as follow up and restoration.

Questions & Comments
Maurice Salama - (7/3/2019 3:58 PM)

Robert; I NEVER do the submerged root technique with synthetic or allograft materials of any kind and would not advocate such an approach. regards Dr. Salama

Robert Sanker - (7/2/2019 7:41 PM)

are you currently doing the submerged root technique with synthetic graft material and what is the success rate?

Maurice Salama - (4/22/2019 9:52 AM)

Big difference with RST, we are trying to prevent loss of ridge contour and volume by keeping 1mm of tooth structure contoured along the scalloped form of the CEJ. This keeps bone at crest and supercrestal fibers engaged into the 1mm of the tooth root structure providing maximum maintenance and preservation. We showed this in our diagrams during the presentation. I am unaware of the Malia technique of 2-3 mm below crest but it makes no sense to me as anything removed below the crest will not preserve the crest of bone and it will resorb. Yes, you can utilize tuberosity as graft seal but I do not prefer this as the material of choice as it is more dense and difficult to carry onto the labial and palatal aspects and maintain vascularity. My choice is CTG from palate here. Hope this clarifies things for you, Dr. Salama

daniel gremban - (4/1/2019 10:36 AM)

Dr. Salama: PLease provide some clarity on the technique you use with reduction 1mm above bone with CT grafting vs Dr. Mallia technique of 2-3 mm below bone with just the clot to provide healing. Also, in a single tooth could you harvest CT from the tuberosity region as a plug and leave the epithelium?

Maurice Salama - (8/28/2018 9:44 PM)

Stephen; You must release your flap and advance coronally or add CTG to achieve closure. Good luck Dr. Salama

Stephen Johansen - (8/28/2018 9:58 AM)

I have had some cases struggle to achieve complete tissue closure. These were endodontically treated teeth with a little Miracle Mix to fill the top of the canal. They were lowered to the appropriate level. Any suggestions to help the tissue granulate and completely seal off the tooth?

Gary Chike - (9/5/2017 8:44 PM)

Very informative and an excellent presentation. I've performed quite a few SRT's with root canal treated teeth and letting it granulate with good success. But I've never tried it on a vital tooth. This gives me some food for thought.

Maurice Salama - (7/2/2017 10:51 AM)

Madhur; It is not a contraindication as long as the perio issues are resolved and roots debrided. I would then perform any of the PET options, SS, SRT or PS. regards Dr. Salama

Madhur Kankaria - (7/2/2017 9:22 AM)

Nice work Dr Maurice! Very informative! Do you recommend NOT doing any kind of PET on teeth with concomitant periodontal infection? Is Periodontal disease a relative/absolute contra indication for PET since i have seen cases where even periodontally involved teeth are treated for a PET.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 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.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery in the Treatment of the Gummy Smile
Thanks to the constant advances in modern dentistry we can predict surgical results, stablishing new standards for diagnosis and develop treatments for periodontal plastic surgery as of Altered Passive Eruption by electrosurgery. This is used by the T- shaped regulation, provided by Dr. Chu for the accuracy golden proportions, which has became an innovative way to make cosmetic lengthening of the clinical crowns, covering changes in relations to size, shape, and balance of the teeth to obtain a radical variation in the front aesthetic of patients.

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.
