The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?

A webinar hosted by
T.V. Narayan, DDS


When: Wednesday
January 25, 2023
ALL DAY - 24 HOURS (NY Time)

Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restoratively. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction. There have been several strategies employed to minimize these aesthetic problems including the dual zone grafting technique, bilaminar connective tissue grafting etc. These require the use of bone grafting materials, additional surgical site morbidity etc. and there still remains an uncertainty of the long term outcomes. The socket shield technique involves leaving behind a sliver of tooth on the facial side attached to the periodontal ligament with the intent of preserving the bundle bone. This presentation reviews some of the problems associated with immediate implant placement, the socket shield technique, and clinical cases to show the technique and its advantages.
