Saving the bone – the new standard for atraumatic extractions

Dr. Jure Poglajen

Dental webinar illustrating the latest methodology for minimally invasive tooth extractions. Preserving the alveoar bone is crucial for the osseointegration and long term prognosis of the implant and to retain a removable denture.

The extraction of a tooth is probably the most traumatic event a patient can experience in dental surgery.

The most frequent reason for tooth extraction is acute toothache. In many cases however teeth and roots without acute symptoms may be extracted to prevent complications such as the spread of infection. In rare cases the extraction of healthy teeth is recommended as in carefully selected orthodontic cases. A certain degree of damage to the alveolar bone, gingival and mucous tissue is unfortunately always part of an extraction. Fracturing of the maxillary tuburositas is a relatively frequent complication of upper wisdom tooth removals. This can result in severe pain, prolonged healing phase and long term problems for the patient which should be avoided at all costs. Other less common but most feared complications of mandibular third molar extractions are lesions of the inferior alveolar nerve and the lingual nerve. Iatrogenic injury of the IAN or the LN often lead to legal actions for damage and compensation for sensory disturbances involving the chin, the lower lip, gums and tongue.

It is in both the dentist’s and patient’s best interest to minimize risks and keep as much undamaged tissues as possible. Following modern requirements, a proper extraction should have a minimal biological cost, which means little to no damage to the surrounding tissue and adjacent teeth.

Preservation of the bone is of paramount importance regardless what follows the extraction. A preserved alveolar ridge is crucial to retain and stabilize a total or partial removable denture as well as to achieve a favorable osseointegration of the implants. The amount of alveolar bone left intact will also play a significant role in the long term prognosis of the implant.

The correct use of minimally invasive surgical extraction instruments is fundamental as the improper handling of these instruments will focus forces in the wrong areas, resulting in unnecessary tissue damage.

This webinar illustrates the latest methodology to keep a biological cost as low as possible, limit surgical complications of tooth extraction and reduce post-operatory discomfort.
