"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

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies in the Esthetic Zone: The Evolution of New Age Concepts
Modern Tooth Replacement Strategies are more concerned about esthetics than ever before especially in light of recent research that clearly defines the risk of resorption, ridge constriction, tissue recession and color changes that often occur following extraction and implant replacement. This presentation will describe the Dual Zone concepts recently published to address these issues as well partial extraction therapies which may play an expanding and more critical role in the future.

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine Premium Member Content

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine
This 50yr.+ female showed external/internal resorption of tooth #11. Socket Shield technique was used saving the facial and interproximal of the tooth. Remainder of tooth was removed by vertically sectioning the tooth with surgical burs in 45 degree high-speed handpiece. Implant placed was a 4.6 x 15mm Tapered Plus Biohorizon implant. Mineross was mixed with saved bone and placed in gap areas. An Emax bonded Maryland bridge was then bonded to adjacent teeth for a temporary replacement. The implant, healing collar and graft were covered with PRF. Nine day post op is shown. This case will be closely followed and posted on XP.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
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 Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.

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.
