Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?

Description:
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “ problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

How long time it is necessary to use provisional crown in the esthetic zone after tooth extraction + ss + implant+ Immediate loading? The time between the placement of a temporary crown and Individual impression of the gingival for final crwn. The time differs from that of technician socket reservation ?

Great conclusion, Jorge!

Where can I get copies of articles you mention regarding ridge with stability? thanks James

George, I´ve been doing this for 4 years and I´m very gratefull for the outcomes. The biology explanations tell us that we have to STOP extracting to obtain a better results. Please, check your own cases at 4 to 5 years on a CBCT, you´ll see how much bone you have lost!. Regards

Richard, as you told, by a tactile sensation. Once you are inside the root you perfectly notice when you are moving out. Bone is softer than tooth. Once you do few you notice perfectly. Regards

Enrique, you cant prevent about soft tissue invasion. The same happens with immediate implants. There is a 2or 3 mm. of soft tissue integration around the neck of your implant. This is not an issue. When you insert the implant closer to the shield, sometimes in contact,you don´t get the soft tissue invasion. Regards

George; Can you explain why you choose to be a late adapter to this technique? What are your primary concerns? Thanks Mo

George Duello - (4/27/2017 3:12 PM)

Jorge, Thanks for sharing-I'm going to be a late adapter on this technique but I appreciate your passion and biologic explanation. George

ENRIQUE TREVINO - (4/26/2017 12:08 PM)

Jorge, I have a question for You, when You do Flap-less technique, how do You prevent soft tissue from occupying the space between the implant and the shield? with granulomatose tissue. Is that an issue? Thank You for Your great presentation. ET from Juarez, Mexico

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

This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment
Until recently, dentists' and the public's concept of dental aesthetics was necessarily limited to alterations of the teeth themselves. Dentists concerned themselves with changing the position, the shape and the color of the teeth -basically restoring missing units or enhancing those already present. For the most part the dentist was forced to accept the pre-existing relationship between the three components of the smile; the teeth, the gingival scaffold and the lips.
