Recorded at the Megagen 5th European Symposium 2016. Dr. Howard Gluckman presents partial extraction techniques (PET) in single implant sites, multiple implant sites and pontic sites.

Preservation of bundle bone, reality or myth? - Dr. Howard Gluckman

Aims and objectives:

  • Treatment planning for the immediate implant therapy
  • Gain an insight into aesthetic problems associated with single implants, and multiple implants, and what possible complications can arise
  • Understand the limitations of socket preservation, and soft tissue grafting techniques, in thin biotypes
  • The benefits of partial extraction therapies
  • Where partial extraction therapies, as a possible solution, can be used in these situations
  • Overview of the socket shield/root membrane technique, root submergence technique and pontic shield
  • How long the socket shield should be
  • How high should the socket shield be above the bone
  • How thick the socket shield should be
  • How deep the implant should be placed
  • How much space is needed between the socket shield and the implant
  • Emdogain to recondition the root?
  • Filling the jump gap
  • Subgingival crown distance to the shield
  • Can we do simultaneous GBR
