"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.

in the case of 21 minutes ,, is the apical lesion was there before implant placement?

Jimoh Lasisi - (10/13/2017 7:37 AM)

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 !!!!

cobi landsberg - (4/15/2016 11:48 AM)

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..

Charles Schwimer - (4/13/2016 5:47 PM)

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

Preservation of the Bundle Bone: Reality or Myth Premium Member Content

Preservation of the Bundle Bone: Reality or Myth
The loss of teeth will lead to resorption of the buccal plate with its resultant need for extensive augmentative procedures (both bone and soft tissue) as well as the risk of poor long term aesthetic stability. Partial Extraction Therapies (PET) are techniques that allow us to maintain the buccal bone plate and hence prevent the collapse of the alveolar bone creating a platform for ideal soft tissue and bone which is stable in the long term. This is a greater problem in the aesthetic areas. This lecture will take you through the different options with regards to immediate implant placement as well as the most cutting edge PET in a step by step fashion.

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2
Biphosphonates Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is one of the tragedies affecting our patients each time more often representing a new challenge in what we like to call human dentistry. This severe and unpredictable outcome can evolve from something as simple as a tooth extraction or simply an implant placement. In this presentation the authors display one of the first BRONJ cases in the world treated with the surgical biosealing technique using the PRGF ENDORET graft. Understanding the BIOlogy behind the healing process has been as much surprising as useful in trying to alleviate our patients pain and improve their quality of life. This video presents a novel technique to the post-extraction site based upon taking care of the overall tissue support from the bone level and we will discuss treatment planning, options and limitations with this technique/protocol.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…
