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.

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

narayan tv - (3/12/2016 8:46 PM)

Thank you Chuck , for taking the time to watch &comment. To me, the greatest impact it has had is in anterior immediates and I guess that's why it has that bias towards aesthetics . Haha, I had to restrict my questions to the scope of what I spoke and so.... Thanks once again for your comments

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

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.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…
