This video shows the use of an extracted root to augment a resorbed maxillary central incisor ridge.
Some failing teeth in a quadrant meant that providing a fixed restoration on teeth was impossible. By using a carefully staged protocol to recover the alveolus, four implants were placed and were adequate to support an eight-unit bridge.
A failing enhanced socket regeneration procedure was re-treated by raising a flap to debride the region more thoroughly. An implant was placed and surrounded by another round of graft material. Hopefully this procedure will provide a better result.
A maxillary premolar is vertically fractured down to the osseous level. This video shows the removal of the tooth, degranulation of the socket, preparation of the implant channel and placement of an implant with a gingivaformer. Osseous augmentation was provided around the implant to fill the deficiency between the implant and the walls of the extraction socket.
As a dentist you must be able to think on your feet. You have to go in with a game plan, but have the ability to change it when the situation demands.
