The Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique (RST) for Pontic Site Enhancement part 1

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 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.

I so much enjoy going to back to basics!! Thank you Maurice for everything you have done for our profession.

Ahmed; No, not in the same way as a tooth because no supracrestal fibers with an implant but yes, you can do a Submerged Implant Technique SIT, it just would work less effectively than with a tooth. Thanks for the post. Dr. Salama

RST is very attractive concept, thank you for the great details
I was wondering, if there was fractured one-piece dental implant covered with healthy keratinized gingival and good bone support.
Is leaving fractured implant in such place where a treatment plan to place a pontic works similar to RST in natural teeth in alveolar bone preservation??

This is simply a great CONCEPT Dr. Salama and that you can perform it with VITAL roots is amazing. REAL TRUE and COMPLETE Ridge Preservation!!! thank you Band

I have a question on the sequence of your anterior lateral eruption case.I know you placed an implant in the #8 site for the ortho anchorage. But could you not have just placed brackets on the 6 anteriors and not place the implant until later? I would have thought that once you have the mesial bone at the ideal position on #7, placing the implant with hard and soft grafts would be more predictable. Great presentation by the way!

maurice,

for the roll technique from mod 2 do you do a horizontal split thickness incision on the buccal and two vertical incisions to bone right? do you have a video on xp of this?

Maurice Salama - (5/1/2012 9:32 AM)

As an update on root submerge nice. We continue to have excellent long term results! Also, vital teeth have performed very well. Dr. S

Maurice Salama - (5/13/2010 5:25 AM)

Yitzchak; Thanks. There is a risk of eruption of the root if there is no keratinized tissue covering it and a pontic with contact on the gingiva. As for cutting root, we want to cut it roughly 1mm above the bone and we perform this sometimes without a flap utilizing diamond burs and magnification. Hemostasis is key to allow visualization.
Good luck
Dr. S

Maurice! brilliant idea as allways.. 2 ques. 1. isn't there any risk of that root trying to erupt in the future? 2. could you describe in a few words how you cut to bone level without raising a flap? thanks! Yitzchak

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 2 of 3
Once a tooth is extracted, the natural wound-healing cascade paired with irreversible alteration occurs. Hard tissue grafting techniques combined with the sound understanding of the surgical site theater will help the practitioner to make the proper decision in order to successfully treat their patient. The usage of biological modifiers and surgical barriers are proposed to assist in improving the predictability of the advance surgical care.

A GRAFT-LESS Approach to Implant Dentistry
Vertical bone augmentation techniques are more invasive and success rates often vary according to the surgical expertise of the clinician. There has been a trend over time towards minimally invasive treatment options in implant dentistry. This approach attempts to avoid more complicated procedures involving bone augmentation for implant placement. This presentation discusses a “graft less” treatment philosophy that emphasizes the use of less demanding augmentation techniques for the purpose of placing short implants in atrophic posterior sites.

Timing of Loading and Effect of Micromotion on Bone
A significant no-load healing period is the generally accepted prerequisite for osseointegration in dental implantology. The aim of this article was to examine whether this no-load healing period is validated by the experimental literature. In vivo histological data was scrutinized to identify the effect of early loading protocols on the bone-implant interface. Several loading modes were identified. They were categorized into groups according to implant design and the type of prosthetic reconstruction,…

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and marginal bone level change would exist between axial and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival between rehabilitation's supported only by axial implants or by a combination of axial and tilted implants.
