"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..

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

Prevention & Therapy of Biological Complications in Implant Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
After decades of implant therapies carried out by mostly general dentists, a new pathology that did not exist only 25 years ago is spreading like wildfire: peri-implantitis. In this course we will discuss the possibilities of prevention of this disease and the most modern therapies to treat biological complications in implant therapy in the light of clinical research published and in the next publication.

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.

The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It? Premium Member Content

The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It?
In this video, a free gingival graft is demonstrated to address a recession defect as well as to augment the soft tissue while eliminating the high frenum pull in order to aid in the orthodontic treatment plan of a young patient. While commonly shunned for the morbidity associated with palatal grafts, the free gingival graft is making a comeback with the popularity of implant dentistry due to it's relative simplicity and predictability for augmenting thin tissue. This "back to basics" video takes the free gingival graft back to its roots: The lower incisor area.

In the course, are discussed all the parameters to achieve the correct diagnosis of the socket and the various treatment plan correlated to each anatomical type of socket. The Dual Zone approach (bone zone and tissue zone) will be evaluated and discussed in detail, regarding each of their variables.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

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.
