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

Description:
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. 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.

Very nice presentation Dr. Nanayan! If the tooth is vital, I assume you make sure you removal all of the pulpal tissue? Thank you.

Excellent presentation Dr Narayan congratulations, I would like to know how are the characteristics of the bur that you use in this technique, maybe do you know if is possible found it in latino america?

Vinayak Gowda - (3/18/2016 12:32 AM)

Great presentation DrNarayan and few details including the thickness of the sheild for both ant and posteriors wether to graft the GAP and what graft would be ideal and one more imp question is does SS andPET therapies enhance bone to implant contact and does it accelerate or retard healing around implants as compared to conventional immed implants is the question again nice presentation hope to hear from and see you soon

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies in the Esthetic Zone: The Evolution of New Age Concepts
Modern Tooth Replacement Strategies are more concerned about esthetics than ever before especially in light of recent research that clearly defines the risk of resorption, ridge constriction, tissue recession and color changes that often occur following extraction and implant replacement. This presentation will describe the Dual Zone concepts recently published to address these issues as well partial extraction therapies which may play an expanding and more critical role in the future.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

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.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment Premium Member Content

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
