Extraction Site Micro-gap and Treatment Options in Implant Therapy

Description:
In this second of an ongoing informative and clinically relevant series, Dr. Dennis Tarnow, currently Clinical Professor of Periodontology and Director of Implant Education at Columbia School of Dental Medicine, discusses extraction site management with special emphasis on the biology and clinical treatment options of the micro-gap that occurs after immediate implant placement into an extraction site. Specifically, Dr. Tarnow tries to answer such questions as what is the critical jumping distance, should we graft the micro-gap, and how should we manage the soft tissue flap in immediate extraction and implant placement.

Gabe, the literature tells us that there may be bone and osseointegration on the labial of the implant even without grafting the GAP, however, the buccal plate will remodel and we do see a general loss of bucco-lingual dimension after this modeling takes place especially when no bone grafting is done in the extraction gap. What does that mean to us in the anterior region? Well, we will have bone on the labial of the implant, but we may have a concavity in the soft tissue contour and/or, color/optic deficiencies of the soft tissue. Along with bone grafting the extraction site, a connective tissue graft is often utilized in esthetically demanding areas with thin biotypes to compensate for this possibility. Having said that, If all you're looking for is osseointegration then grafting the gap may not be absolutely necessary as long as you can protect the fibrin clot.

Wow...Does this mean no more grafting implant microgap so long as I have a buccal bone?

Robert ,its the clot that will stabilize the particulated graft materials inside the Gap.

What keeps the bone particulate from washing out around the implant if no membrane or primary closure is achieved? Dr. Tarnow showed a case where he filled in the buccal gap with particulate, placed a healing abutment and pt left with only a flipper. Thank You!

Nice proof of your hypothesis! (11/2009) What about today? (Oct-Nov 2015) Buccal socket defect >2mm+ Do you and Dr Chu treat all (most) of your non-graft (clot only) implant cases this way? What about a grafted implant case? Place a membrane for security or rely on what you've shown here? Looking forward to your response.

Nice to hear from you again .

Mohannad Al Juhaini - (9/1/2013 6:01 AM)

Thank you for a nice presentation. what would be the oral hygiene instruction in such case ? what about if by mistake a food particle got dislodged in between the implant and the bone ? what if the blood clot didn't form ? Thank you in advance

Thank you Henry, I shall continue to bone graft and connective tissue graft my anterior esthetic cases.

henry salama - (8/27/2013 8:22 AM)

peer-emil, there is nothing in the literature that supports the story-line of the resorption of the buccal plate in 4 years. Having said that, the literature tells us that the buccal plate will remodel and we do see a general loss of bucco-lingual dimension after this modeling takes place especially when no bone grafting is done in the extraction gap. What does that mean to us in the anterior region? Well, we will have bone on the labial of the implant, but we may have a concavity in the soft tissue contour. Along with bone grafting the extraction site, a connective tissue graft is often utilized in esthetically demanding areas to compensate for this possibility.

Sequencing of Periodontal Procedures and Orthodontic Treatment Premium Member Content

Sequencing of Periodontal Procedures and Orthodontic Treatment
Severe cases of periodontal disease often require periodontal surgery and realignment of teeth. Surgical techniques have been developed that attempt to minimize postsurgical gingival recession and compromise the interdental papillae. A case report is presented in which reversal and correction of a deteriorating maxillary frontal dentition were effectively achieved through combined use of periodontal and orthodontic principles. The treatment plan included the control of periodontal inflammation, restoration of lost attachment apparatus, realignment of anterior dentition, stabilization of occlusion, and minor periodontal plastic surgery. The anticipated loss of a maxillary lateral incisor was avoided. Restoration of a pleasant smile with nicely aligned teeth and esthetic gingival contours was achieved. The correct sequencing of the procedures involved was considered a key factor for the long-term esthetic outcome.

Digital Full Arch Implant Dentistry: Do We Really Need to Make Hybrid Restorations?
I will highlight the benefits achievable through the use of guided planning, guided laboratory procedures and guided surgeries, while maintaining the fundamental principles of osseointegration. My ten years of scientifically proven experience and clinical follow-up in guided surgery and CAD/CAM biomimetic restorations will be shared with the audience to support clinical protocols as well as practical tips and tricks with case studies demonstrating each clinical scenario. New surgical and prosthetic improvements and novel proof-of-concept techniques to enhance the natural soft tissue integration will be presented. Viewers will also broaden their knowledge of hard and soft tissue surgical management through the guided surgery, discovering the latest implant designs and prosthetic interfaces designed to achieve an ideal soft tissue seal and bone level over time.

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.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.
