Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques

Description:
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

Questions & Comments

Around 33min, you were able to grow bone vertically. I thought we can't really do it without using titanium mash. How do you think you could generate the bone vertically just by using a resorbable membrane? Also, I know you like to go one tooth mesial and distal with vertical incision but how does it compare to 2 teeth mesial and distal without vertical incision? What's pros and cons of each flap design?

Dr. Mota, the key is always stabilization of the graft and membrane, i.e. minimize movement during the healing phase. Towards that end, if one can do that by suturing the membrane to the flap then so be it. However, from a technical and surgical standpoint, it is easier to suture/stabilize the membrane separately from the flap.

Dr Ankita Mota - (11/7/2015 5:51 AM)

Very well explained and illustrated presentation. Sir what is your opinion regarding engaging the membrane with the flap while suturing it..like should it be done ?

Well done Michael. Do you prefer rh-PRGF to autologous PRGF from the patient's own blood? I know they claim much greater concentration of PDGF in Gem21 but I would like to know your opinion and preferences on growth factors. Thanks Maurice

Thanks for sharing

Great presentation. Very easy to follow his logic.

Dear Dr. Sonick: How do you think Gem 21 will work with Bio-oss?
thanks.

thank you. love it.

Hi All, Many of you have been asking about the types of bone grafts and materials I use today. Most times I hydrate a bone allograft in sterile water. Once hydrated, the graft is dried with sterile gauze. I will then place a growth factor, usually 5 drops of rh-PRGF (Gem-21) per 1/2 gram of bone. When a membrane is indicated, I most frequently use a bovine membrane. Hope that clarifies things a little more.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series
To measure the buccal plate reconstruction of extraction sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects using a bone allograft in combination with an absorbable collagen membrane and a custom-healing abutment at the time of tooth removal. Implants placed into sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects demonstrated radiographic reformation of the labial plate dehiscence defect at 6 to 9 months post-treatment. The net gain in labial plate on CBCT in L1 and L2 was 3.0 mm, where 0 mm existed at pre-treatment. The minimum amount of labial plate thickness of 2.0 mm was achieved in all treated sites, evaluated radiographically at 6-9 months post-operatively, in a single procedure, without flap elevation and maintaining the gingival architecture and satisfactory esthetics.
