Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier

Description:
Buccopalatal collapse of the postextraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in the literature. A slightly different approach, "PET" is to use the tooth itself by purposely maintaining all or a portion of the root in the remaining socket. Root submergence has been reported in the literature for more than 4 decades, and it has been demonstrated that the submerged tooth root retains the periodontal tissues and preserves the bone in pontic sites or below dentures to retain the ridge. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section to remain behind on the labial aspect simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results that are highly promising to esthetic implant treatment. The pontic shield technique preserves the alveolar ridge at sites intended for pontic development where the root submergence technique may not be possible or a delayed implant approach is warranted. The aforementioned techniques collectively have been termed Partial Extraction Therapies (PET), a term newly introduced into the literature and tooth replacement clinical environment. This presentation will highlight the PET philosophy and why it may be a superior alternative to traditional techniques previously utilized and researched.

just loved it, watched it several times and every time impressed by the comprehensive details. tnx Mo and Howie. by the way I recommend all xp members to also watch the video by David Garber on PET . REGARDS OMID

Was curious how offices are billing out root submergence, pontic shield, and socket shield cases since there are no insurance codes I'm aware of that recognize these procedures. Unfortunately many of us deal extensively with insurance and so it is a reality we live with. What are typical fees? Any information would be appreciated.

Excelente Presentation!!! Thanks!! I have one question, when you do Submerged Roots you need to do endodontic tratament? or not its necesary? Thanks!!

Ye Stephen I seal the canal with glass ionomers. I drill out the top 2-3mm of GP and fill the canal. The it is important to cover with a soft tissue graft of sorts.

When dealing with root canaled teeth that you want to submerge, are you placing any material over the gutta percha or just leaving it exposed?

"The Great Debate" on Tooth Replacement
Bucco-palatal collapse of the post-extraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in this session with some of the leading clinical research teams in the field. A conceptual debate format discussing the virtues of "Early Placement" at 6 weeks (Buser & Belser Team) vs. "Immediate Placement with Dual Zone Protocols" at time of extraction (Chu & Tarnow Team) vs. "Partial Extraction Therapy" PET (Gluckman & Salama) also at the time of extraction is led by Professor Homa Zadeh of USC. This interactive session explores the current status and poses questions for the future use and indications of each proposed therapy.

The "Dual-Zone" Approach in Immediate Implant Placement Premium Member Content

The "Dual-Zone" Approach in Immediate Implant Placement
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described have enabled practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. This protocol allows for efficient management of the patient and an attempt to maintain all original contours of the extraction site. Multiple case and retrospective case studies will be cited to support this concept.

Early Implant Placement with Contour Augmentation - Biologic Rationale, Surgical Technique & Long-Term Results Premium Member Content

Early Implant Placement with Contour Augmentation - Biologic Rationale, Surgical Technique & Long-Term Results
Today, the timing of implant placement post-extraction in the esthetic zone is considered an important factor which influences the esthetic treatment outcome. One of these options is early implant placement after 4 to 8 weeks of soft-tissue healing. The purpose of this presentation is to present data and to analyze the stability of esthetic treatment outcomes in patients following single-tooth replacement in the anterior maxilla using the concept of early implant placement with simultaneous contour augmentation. Special emphasis will be placed on assessing the stability of the facial mucosa, since it directly depends on the stability of successful contour augmentation by GBR and to compare it to currently utilized immediate techniques like Dual Zone Therapy (Chu & Tarnow) and Partial Extraction Therapies (Salama & Gluckman).

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
