The Submerged Root Technique “RST”: A Clinical Case and Video Series

Description:
By maintaining the natural tooth root through the root submergence technique (RST) we are better able to preserve a much greater amount of surrounding tissue than the more commonly used socket preservation technique. RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth root in the pontic site which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and creates a more esthetic result in multiple tooth replacement cases. In this Case Report and Video, the concept and surgical technique are highlighted in detail including a video of the actual submergence and graft as well as follow up and restoration.

Questions & Comments
Maurice Salama - (7/3/2019 3:58 PM)

Robert; I NEVER do the submerged root technique with synthetic or allograft materials of any kind and would not advocate such an approach. regards Dr. Salama

Robert Sanker - (7/2/2019 7:41 PM)

are you currently doing the submerged root technique with synthetic graft material and what is the success rate?

Maurice Salama - (4/22/2019 9:52 AM)

Big difference with RST, we are trying to prevent loss of ridge contour and volume by keeping 1mm of tooth structure contoured along the scalloped form of the CEJ. This keeps bone at crest and supercrestal fibers engaged into the 1mm of the tooth root structure providing maximum maintenance and preservation. We showed this in our diagrams during the presentation. I am unaware of the Malia technique of 2-3 mm below crest but it makes no sense to me as anything removed below the crest will not preserve the crest of bone and it will resorb. Yes, you can utilize tuberosity as graft seal but I do not prefer this as the material of choice as it is more dense and difficult to carry onto the labial and palatal aspects and maintain vascularity. My choice is CTG from palate here. Hope this clarifies things for you, Dr. Salama

daniel gremban - (4/1/2019 10:36 AM)

Dr. Salama: PLease provide some clarity on the technique you use with reduction 1mm above bone with CT grafting vs Dr. Mallia technique of 2-3 mm below bone with just the clot to provide healing. Also, in a single tooth could you harvest CT from the tuberosity region as a plug and leave the epithelium?

Maurice Salama - (8/28/2018 9:44 PM)

Stephen; You must release your flap and advance coronally or add CTG to achieve closure. Good luck Dr. Salama

Stephen Johansen - (8/28/2018 9:58 AM)

I have had some cases struggle to achieve complete tissue closure. These were endodontically treated teeth with a little Miracle Mix to fill the top of the canal. They were lowered to the appropriate level. Any suggestions to help the tissue granulate and completely seal off the tooth?

Gary Chike - (9/5/2017 8:44 PM)

Very informative and an excellent presentation. I've performed quite a few SRT's with root canal treated teeth and letting it granulate with good success. But I've never tried it on a vital tooth. This gives me some food for thought.

Maurice Salama - (7/2/2017 10:51 AM)

Madhur; It is not a contraindication as long as the perio issues are resolved and roots debrided. I would then perform any of the PET options, SS, SRT or PS. regards Dr. Salama

Madhur Kankaria - (7/2/2017 9:22 AM)

Nice work Dr Maurice! Very informative! Do you recommend NOT doing any kind of PET on teeth with concomitant periodontal infection? Is Periodontal disease a relative/absolute contra indication for PET since i have seen cases where even periodontally involved teeth are treated for a PET.

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier
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.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers. In the digital prosthetic part, the authors will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of new materials and daily advances in new software's.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

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…
