"The Root Membrane Technique” / Socket Shield: Long-Term Results

Description:
Loss of blood supply derived from the periodontal ligament (PDL) has been identified as a major etiologic factor for ridge resorption. Animal studies and case reports provide proof-of-principle data on the feasibility of immediate implant placement in proximity to a retained root fragment for the strategic preservation of the natural tooth apparatus. This novel concept relies on the preservation of PDL, buccal bone and soft tissue esthetics via selective preservation of the buccal portion of the root and PDL which can lead to predictable and sustainable clinical stability of immediately placed and loaded implants.

Have you tried this technique on tooth that had under go endodontic?

abdullah algethmi - (4/18/2016 8:10 AM)

thank dr mitsias for this nice presentation , i want ask about is there osointegration between implant and tooth part,if not what about stability . what about if there is lateral canal ,it will de source of infection . thank u again

Hi Dr. Mitsias, very nice presentation. Thanks for explaining youre cases. I believe inner shield exposures are not a problem, like I saw in the 4 implants cases. The "C" shape of the shield helps mantaining the papilla. Great work. Congratulations Jorge

Very nice presentation Dr. Mitsias. Thanks for sharing your long data experience !!!!

I enjoyed your presentation a lot. Your contribution to the understanding of this revolutionary approach is tremendous. Few questions: 1. In last case you showed few root parts still exposed. Do they get covered by healthy soft tissue by time? always? 2. How apically must the height of the root be reduced?? Best regards, Cobi

Miltiadis Mitsias - (4/14/2016 3:19 PM)

Thank you all for your kind comments. David and Maurice thank you again for the hospitality and your friendship! It is an honor to be in dentalxp family. David: i have no words to thank you.!Your contribution to Root Membrane is so crucial and important. Maurice: Viva PET therapies! It gets better and better. Last week i did 4 different cases and every time small differences always happen. I believe it is what ever works better in your hands...! The important is not to break the root and to put the implant with more than 35N...Then you are good for loading etc..Viva! Chuck: Thank you for your comments. It is a case selection story but it is always a learning curve too. We had initial difficulties too until we found our style...As said before whatever it works better in your hands..

Mitsias. Thank you for your most significant contributions. IMO your longer term experience and publications are invaluable to the eventual acceptance of PET. I also prefer high speed / low torque root preparation. In fact all of my early failures were a consequence of preparing the roots as you do with implant burs. Perhaps your case selection is the key to success. I imagine if the tooth survives high torque preparation it is an excellent candidate to survive long term. I feel your conservative PET approach is prudent, but IMO limiting yourself to single rooT anterior teeth may not always be in your patients best interest. After all, short wide implants are not always an option after total extraction protocol. Please continue to update and share with us. Best regards. Chuck

Maurice Salama - (4/13/2016 3:39 PM)

Well done my friend and thank you for your contribution to XP and the literature....other than differences in preparation of the root we agree on most points and have had similar success. Viva PET therapies. regards Dr. Salama

Great job my friend

The Diagnosis and Treatment of Inflammatory Peri-implant Disease: We Have a Problem
This detailed presentation will discuss the etiology, microbiology, histopathology and clinical manifestations of peri-implant disease, and will present evidence based in-office and at-home treatment regimens to stop mucositis from progressing to peri-implantitis. Additionally, "COAP", a new minimally invasive surgical technique for the treatment of peri-implantitis will be introduced.

The Biomimetic Approach to Saving Teeth: Minimally Invasive Restorations and Periodontal Surgery Premium Member Content

The Biomimetic Approach to Saving Teeth: Minimally Invasive Restorations and Periodontal Surgery
Stress reduced composite restorations now play a significant role in minimally invasive restorative dentistry. When combined with micro-periodontal surgical grafting techniques to alter gingival levels these procedures save teeth and warrant further consideration in our daily treatment. Our ability to minimize tooth reduction during tooth preparation and still maintain a strength of material and of bonding on previously exposed root surfaces as well as endodontically treated teeth is the future of a truly biomimetic approach. This presentation highlights this biomimetic approach to treatment and showcases the clinicians ability to provide long term management of both function and esthetics. It should open our eyes to the potential of maintaining the dentition of our patients rather than crown or implant replacement.

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.
