Extraction and socket grafting in preparation for implant placement
This surgical video demonstrates removal of a tooth with loss of buccal plate and grafting of the remaining socket with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide to preserve the ridge for implant placement.
Welcome to Clinical Quick Tips Videos, presented by Perio-Implant Advisory. In these videos, we will present techniques and product demonstrations on real patients with an emphasis on solving periodontal- and implant-related issues.
In this five-minute video, Dr. Scott Froum, editorial director of Perio-Implant Advisory, discusses the surgical steps involved in removing a tooth with loss of buccal plate and grafting the remaining socket with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen and collagen membrane in order to preserve the ridge for subsequent dental implant placement.
In this case, Dr. Scott Froum performs a live surgery on a 51-year-old male. The patient is in good health and taking no medications. He has an unrestorable tooth No. 13.
While there is an ample amount of soft tissue in the area, there is a buccal plate defect. According to the radiograph, tooth No. 13 was treated previously with a root canal (with an apicoectomy), and there is no periodontal ligament (PDL). This will be a difficult extraction.
Follow along and watch Dr. Froum perform this surgical procedure as he elevates the tooth, makes an osteotomy, performs osseous removal around the root, luxates the tooth, and removes the root. He then prepares to graft the socket by performing a soft-tissue envelope flap incision and placing the collagen material and a collagen membrane in order to preserve the ridge for subsequent dental implant placement.
