Infection Control/Asepsis (summary - important): Patient Care and Regulatory issues Protects patient as well as dentist, staff and other patients Often cited violation by State Dental Board Indication of Commitment to Patient Care/ Professionalism Normal Orla flora contain: Aerobic G+ Cocci (Streph), actinomycte Anearobic (Canada) Total Number of Oral Organisms is held in check by: Rapid epi. Turn over w/ desquamation 5

IgA Dilution by saliva flow Competition btw oral organism for avalible nutrients and attachment sites Infection Control Communicable Pathogenic Organisms Aseptic Technique and Standard (Universal) Precautions Instrument sterilization/disinfection Operatory disinfection Surgical staff preparation Staff Preparation: Clean Technique for Office Surgery Non-sterile gown Gloves Change as often as needed Mask Hair, shoe covers as needed Instruments are sterile when opened Used for most office based intra-oral procedures Cross-contamination is a major problem Emphasis must remain on avoiding touching of any contaminated item - mask, glasses, charts, chair, etc. !! EMPLOY BARRIER TECHNIQUES !!

Surgical Staff Preparation: Sterile Technique Sterile Technique is practiced in OR even when operating intra-orally (Consistent Technique) Necessary for uncontaminated wounds (extra-oral) such as skin biopsy, TMJ, Salivary gland surgery where no oral contamination is present Sterile gloves, gown, drapes with strict adherence to touching only sterile objects (touch only what is blue) Precise and formal surgical scrub, gloving, and gowning techniques End of Lecture 1 Peri-Operative Management Goals of Post-op Care Minimize Discomfort and/ or the PERCEPTION of Discomfort Regain pre-operative function Return patient to normal activities of daily life Avoid Infection A General Rule Pt. should feel better after 3-4 days 6

Avoid infection Post-operative Instructions (POI) Educate patients about anticipated/ expected post op events Instruct patients how to care for themselves Instruct patients how to avoid complications Educate patients to recognize complications Things that are normal.Not good, but normal. Soreness Swelling Chapped lips Bruising Minor Bleeding

Post Operative Bleeding Minor bleeding is normal and expected First part of the healing process Gauze pressure should be placed directly over the surgical site Gauze pressure should be maintained for 30-60 minutes, prior to replacing gauze Bleeding must be well controlled before discharge from the office Gauze pressure must be placed directly on the surgical site, not the occlusal plane Do NOT change the gauze TOO often - acts like a dry sponge pulls clot from socket, causes bleeding to continue Moistening the gauze pad may be of benefit Minor bleeding may occur after meals or brushing the teeth Mild oozing may occur for 24-36 hours post-op NO SPITTING ! NO STRAWS! NO SMOKING! if the patient must smoke, then draw very lightly on the cigarette Minimize negative pressure intra-orally Avoid strenuous exercise for 12-24 hours post-op May have bleeding on pillow overnight A little blood and a lot of saliva, looks like a lot of blood Prolonged bleeding, bright red bleeding , and large (liver) clots may indicate the need for a return visit Initially, liver clots may be wiped from the socket, the area rinsed, and gauze reapplied with biting pressure If needed, office evaluation should be accomplished on a after-hours basis 7

Postoperative bleeding causes Edema Failure of POI - poor instructions, poor emphasis, poor compliance Poor quality tissue Suboptimal surgical technique Very rarely due to undiagnosed coagulopathy Edema is ALWAYS expected after surgery Degree is dependent upon the extent of surgery and quality of tissue Maximum edema at 48-72 hours post-op Gravity dependent

Ice packs may be used for 24-36 hours to limit swelling. MAY or MAY NOT HELP LIMIT EDEMA 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off during waking hours Dry cloth interposed between cold and skin avoid frostbite Allows patient to take an active role in their care Edema is, in part, gravity dependent Surgical site should be elevated above the heart Resting in a recliner is a good position Limited inter-Incisal opening Trismus an inability to open the jaw due to inflammation associated with trauma or infection, a spasm of the muscles of mastication Guarding limited opening due to pain or anticipated pain Post-op patient may have both Trismus -Inflammation, trauma Masseter, Temporalis insertion may be traumatized with removal of lower 3rds Medial Pterygoid may be traumatized during local anesthetic injections Masseter, Buccinator may be inflamed due to buccal hematoma secondary to PSA injection, removal of maxillary 3rd molar

Limited Inter-Incisal Opening Warn, advise patients for potential decreased IIO Early mobilization of the mandible retards muscle stiffness, increases IIO Advance to a regular diet in the early post op period Ecchymosis 8

A hemorrhagic spot in the skin or mucous membrane forming a nonelevated, round or irregular, blue or purplish patch Blood in the subcutaneous tissue A bruise May be quite extensive More likely in older patients with decreased tissue tone, intracellular attachments Red-heads > blonds > brunettes Fairly complexioned > darkly complexioned persons May be quite alarming to patients!! Reassure the patient. Reportedly does not increase pain or chance of infection Onset over 2-4 days post-op Purple green/ brown yellow Usually resolves at 7-10 days post-op

Control of Infection Careful surgical technique is the most important consideration Topical antimicrobials (chlorhexidine) may be of benefit Antibiotics may be appropriate for selected individuals i.e. depressed host-defense responses, extensive surgery, violation of anatomic spaces For NON-surgical pt. use penicillin For Surgical pt. use .. Diet Pain, fear may discourage patients from eating The more you eat and drink, the better you will feel. Anything you want to eat or drink is fine Soft, cool foods until Novacaine is gone: Nothing scalding hot until the Novacaine wears off Best to avoid coarse foods chips, popcorn, nuts High calorie diet > 2 liter fluid volume during 1st 24 hours Limit caffeine or any diuretics

Oral hygiene Good hygiene promotes healing Gently brush in routine fashion 3X / day Avoid the areas of surgery Minor bleeding is to be expected particularly after meals or brushing the teeth. Gentle chlorhexidine gluconate or saline rinses may promote healing

Retainers Orthodontic retainers, appliances should be used in routine fashion, beginning on the day of surgery Place the retainer once the novacaine has worn off. Do NOT wait until edema precludes appliance placement. Post-operative contact Patient should be instructed to call early in the day for post-op questions or concerns Facilitates scheduling of post-op visits in the daily schedule Patient should receive emergency contact numbers i.e. cell phone, beeper, & home phone Considerations for Sinus Communications Anatomy: teeth develop in proximity to the maxillary sinus The surgical approach often determines the extent and size of the communication Uncontrollable factors: size, depth , location influence need for and extent of surgical closure Tissue available for closure may require extensive repositioning of soft tissue POI Sinus Communications Maintain equal pressure between sinus and mouth to avoid displacement of the clot !!! Do NOT blow the nose! Do NOT play a wind instrument ! Do NOT use a straw! Do NOT smoke! If a cough or a sneeze is unavoidable, open the mouth, turn the head toward the floor and direct The Healing of the sinus depend on: location and communication o the sneeze or cough toward the floor through your OPEN mouth! Gently rinse the surgical sites as directed Take all medications as prescribed. Prophylactic antibiotics such as amoxicillin or Augmentin are commonly employed Use of a nasal decongestant drops, not spray, may be helpful (i.e. % Neosynephrine). Check with your physician if you have high blood pressure. For one-sided communications, please rest or sleep with the involved side tilted up . This will promote drainage from the affected side. (ostium of the sinus is above the level of the floor) 10

Some bleeding from the nose may occur. Blot the area. Do NOT blow the nose

Postoperative pain Pain - a sensation of discomfort, distress or agony resulting from the stimulation of specialized nerve endings Always anticipated postoperatively Perception and psyche are significant influences Should be addressed pre-operatively Sore, but not miserable Pain medication will help Patients past experience and perception are very important !!! Different philosophies: o Youll be fine with Tylenol vs. Everyone gets a prescription What pain medication has worked well for you in the past? NSAIDs coupled with a Class III or Class IV analgesic are a good combination for most patients Analgesic should be started BEFORE the local anesthetic effect has diminished delayed onset of p o Rx Take with food buffers against nausea, GI distress Excessive narcotic use may cause drowsiness Constipation occurs rarely

Class III analgesics Hydrocodone compounds (Vicodin , Lortab) Codeine compounds (Tylenol #3) Dihydrocodeine compounds (Synalgos DC9) Class II analgesics Oxycodone compounds limited use (Percocet, Percodan, Tylox) Other Class II analgesics - seldom, if ever , used (Demerol , Dilaudid, morphine) End of Lecture 2 Armamentarium Scalpel Handle: number 3 Blades: #s 15 (most common),11 (incision and drainage) ,12,10 (larger version of #15) 11

Proper technique for loading/ unload Always use an instrument NEVER USE FINGERS! Cut with belly of blade perpendicular to epithelium (mucosa, skin) Firm, uniform cut uniform pressure Cut to depth (usually through the periosteum to bone) in a single stroke Single patient use - Disposable Change as needed, if blade becomes dull Proper grip (pen grasp)

Basic Principles CONTROLLED FORCE Mechanical Advantage, NOT Strength NEVER USE EXCESSIVE FORCE !!! RECOGNIZE WHEN YOU ARE NOT MAKING PROGRESS AND PROCEED TO A SURGICAL APPROACH Place finger/thumb on buccal plate to stabilize alveolus and evaluate degree of force transmitted and tooth/mobility DO NOT PULL THE TOOTH Intrude, Push, Rock, Rotate, Draw, and Deliver

Simple Machines: Basis of Extraction Techniques Lever Wedge Wheel and Axle LEVER Requires a FULCRUM Lever-mechanism likely to break fragile elevators (root tip picks), teeth and/or bone Straight Elevator Cryer elevators, Potts elevators Cogswell, Crane, and others Forceps are actually paired, opposing levers WEDGE SAFER with MORE CONTROL of FORCE Straight elevators, root tip elevators Direct along the axis of the root, in the periodontal ligament space, between the tooth and the bone Surgical blade is a form of a wedge


WHEEL AND AXLE Used to SCOOP tooth from socket May generate EXCESSIVE FORCE

Purpose of Elevators Primary: Loosen teeth in preparation for extraction with forceps Create space for forceps May be primary mechanism for extraction, particularly for impacted teeth

Secondary Remove parts of tooth or root


Specific Elevators: Straight Elevators Usually the initial instrument used during extraction Primary use is for initial expansion of alveolus and loosening of tooth/PDL (Lever and Wedge) Often used incorrectly- DO NOT FULCRUM FROM THE ADJACENT TOOTH FULCRUM ONLY FROM THE CRESTAL or INTERSEPTAL BONE When used between teeth and only one tooth is to be extracted, care must be used to avoid damage to adjacent tooth/restorations Use with working end pointed from facial toward the lingual or apically along the axis of the root NEVER USE IN CROSS ARCH FASHIONbecause the elevator can penetrate the cheek

Proper way to elevate Elevator is used to force the tooth to expand the bone Wedges the apical edge of the elevator against crestal,interseptal bone and pushes the tooth Avoids force on adjacent tooth Straight Elevator When used to scoop the tooth out, significant force is placed on the adjacent tooth. Dont do this routinely! ACCEPTABLE TO USE THE ADJACENT TOOTH AS A FULCRUM ONLY WHEN THAT TOOTH IS ALSO TO BE REMOVED !!! --------------------------Cryer Elevators 35

Lever, and/or wheel & axle forces Careful as will fracture tooth, bone generates much force Primary use is for removing residual roots of multi-rooted teeth, especially retained mandibular molar roots Sharp tip removes inter-radicular bone providing access to the retained root (two scoops)

Root Tip Elevators Appearance seems to indicate they would be good lever for prying out root tips. This will ruin the instrument. FRAGILE - Prying forces will bend or break these instruments

Sole use is as wedge. Push fine tip apically to wedge root tip from socket or wedge tip into PDL to displace root Wedging out a root tip with a straight elevator: 1- Finger rest to control apical force 2- Insert elevator within PDL 3- Avoid pressure that will displace the root into the sinum FORCEPS Paired, opposing LEVERS CLASS II LEVER: The load (tooth) is situated between the fulcrum (apical bone) and the force (operator) Primary force is initially in an apical direction to seat the forceps MOVES FULCRUM TO APEX OF THE TOOTH o Usethe root of the tooth to expand the alveolus o If you keep closing the forceps you can fracture the crown Not for pulling teeth- use the forceps as a handle and lever comparable to a Vise Grips Secondary force is buccal, lingual, and rotational to EXPAND THE ALVEOLUS and release the tooth Lastly, minimal tractioning force DRAW = DELIVER the tooth Forceps movement produces significant wedging forces The tooth is used as a wedge to expand the alveolar bone o Use in lingual/buccal apical direction Initial and greatest magnitude of force of apical. Secondary force is B/L. Expansion of the alveolar bone is the goal. Non-Surgical Extraction No such thing as a simple extraction Closed or Non-surgical is proper description What makes it easy (or difficult) is the skill of the surgeon (or lack thereof) 36

Step by Step Approach to Non-Surgical (Closed) Extraction: Confirm profound anesthesia of soft, hard tissues, and pulp Release soft tissue around tooth- Be Kind to the Soft Tissue Elevate tooth with the elevator Adapt forceps to the tooth: Luxate with forceps to expand the alveolar bone. o Luxate: To throw out of place or out of join Remove the tooth from the socket Confirm that roots have been delivered in their entirety : Confirm normal root anatomy, Check for cleavage planes and accessory roots: look for pdl fuz Examine socket and debride soft tissue, debris, granulation tissue-curette Compress socket (realign the labial cortical plate) u dont want it narrow bc it iwill be diffic. For implant or ortho treatment If you have undercut compress it a little Place 2x2 gauze directly over socket and compress with occlusal force

Make sure you have good anesthesia, and Articane Shouldnt be used for mandibular Block Loosening of Soft Tissue Attachment Sharp end of periosteal elevator (convex side toward periosteum): #9 Molt, curette, Woodson reflect to the crest Also confirms soft tissue anesthesia Allows forceps to be seated apically or elevator to be placed interproximally BE KIND TO THE SOFT TISSUE Luxation of the Tooth with Dental Elevator A straight elevator is commonly the first instrument employed Perpendicular to interproximal space or parallel to the long axis of the tooth. DO NOT USE THE ADJACENT TOOTH AS A FULCRUM. Luxate tooth Tear, Disrupt PDL- bleeding into PDL hydraulic pressure facilitating expansion of the alveolus Expands the bone Avoid injury to adjacent teeth crowns, interproximal restorations Confirms degree of mobility or establishes need for surgical extraction If successful you can use forceps if not you go surgically Never use Exccessive force or sth BAD is gonna happen Fulcrum up the crest bone


Adaptation of the Forceps to the Tooth Choose forceps that has beaks that will adapt well to subgingival morphology of tooth - engage intact cementumn Confirm long axis of beaks clears adjacent teeth to avoid trauma. Generally this requires the beaks to be parallel to the long axis of the tooth We want to shorten the length of th root by placing the forceps more apically on the tooth Seat with apical force (lingual/palatal before buccal) Avoid pinching soft tissue place lingual or palatal beak first Firm apical force Moves fulcrum to apex Moves center of rotation apically to retard root fracture Expands alveolus and widens PDL space If crown: Root ration is big It is BAD for perio It is Good for extraction It is easier to see lingual/palatal Luxation of the Tooth with the Forceps Firm grip to hold forceps handles together in a stable position. Do NOT continuously squeeze the handles together as this will fracture the crown (exception is the mandibular #23 forceps = cowhorns) Straight wrist with controlled force generated from shoulder and upper arm, not wrist Firm, steady, sustained force hold, flex the bone to allow expansion of the alveolus Initial force displaces the tooth apically Lateral force is then applied buccally and then with less lingual/palatal force Rotate the tooth gently after initial mobilization JUST LIKE WIGGLING A FENCE POST OUT OF THE GROUND often compared to a figure of 8 motion Continue to re-seat the forceps apically as tooth mobilizes DO NOT FRACTURE THE CROWN It is hard mechanically to use forces. But Pt. Postion + good mechanis = good extraction

***Opposite hand stabilizes alveolus and palpates for alveolar fracture or movement of adjacent teeth. It protects adjacent tissue and prevents slipping that could harm the patient.*** Removal of the Tooth from the Socket Slight traction, usually buccal is usually the final step to removal of a tooth 38

Not a pulling motion Traction = DRAWING motion Draw: to cause (an unwanted element) to depart (as from the body or a lesion)

Post-Extraction Care of the Socket Remove Debris, if present PA Lesion small curette Calculus, Amalgam Tooth Fragments Realign Buccal Plate gently compress socket Restore Pre-Extraction Anatomy Do NOT collapse the B-L dimension of the alveolus, except for preprosthetic purposes Debride Granulation Tissue from Gingival Sulcus Smooth any Sharp Bone Irrigate as needed Control hemorrhage Pressure with moist 2x2 gauze placed over the extraction space Specific Forceps and Their Use: Technique for Extracting Specific Teeth Universal Maxillary and Mandibular Forceps:150 and 151 and Variations Seat beaks with firm and deliberate apical pressure Moves center of rotation apically to decrease root fracture Secures purchase on non-carious/sound tooth Further wedging force augments that already accomplished by elevator Buccal-lingual force (primarily buccal) and rotation (single rooted teeth) Figure-8 motion works well with multi-rooted teeth Luxate as in removing a fence post

Maxillary Molar Forceps:53 and 88 39

Off-set beaks may allow better access along vertical axis of the tooth Less chance of damage to adjacent teeth Beaks are designed to engage root morphology and improve apical purchase Use with figure-8 movement DO NOT use TOO much FORCE DO NOT FRACTURE TUBEROSITY or BUCCAL PLATE Low threshold for surgical extraction if only limited or no movement !!!

Mandibular Molar Forceps:Cowhorn #23 Designed to engage the furcation of lower molar No crown required to engage the tooth may be better than Universal forceps for broken down mandibular molar teeth Must seat into furcation with pumping up and down action BEFORE any buccal-lingual rotation OK to squeeze the handles together, but anticipate a crown fracture or rapid delivery of the tooth Works best for parallel = non-divergent roots Seat on lingual first taking care not to injure soft tissue Up and down motion with gentle pressure closing beaks together squeezing handles together Once seated, use water-pump handle, buccal-lingual motion, &/ or figure8 motion

Primary Teeth If roots are not resorbed, long, divergent and fragile roots complicate exodontia. Likely to fail due to differential resorbtion caused by erupting permanent teeth especially premolars. Bone is more flexible. Care not to damage succedaneous tooth. Post-Extraction Care of the Socket Remove obvious PA pathology or socket debris. Remove soft tissue pathology/granulation tissue Realign Buccal Cortical Plate (Compress Socket) to restore preextraction anatomy. Moist gauze for pressure hemostasis.


Complicated Exodontia Complicated Exodontia Surgical Extraction : Delivery of the tooth requiring construction and elevation of a mucoperiosteal flap, removal of supporting/ impeding bone, and/ or delivery of the tooth in multiple pieces

MATHEMATICS OF EXTRACTION FORCE + SURGERY = ( SURGERY + $ ) SURGERY + FORCE = Complicated Exodontia Flap design, construction, and elevation Removal of supporting/ impeding bone Sectioning (Dividing ) the tooth into smaller segments Multiple extractions + $

CONCEPTS : NON-SURGICAL EXTRACTION NON- SURGICAL = UNCOMPLICATED EXTRACTION: Removal of a fence post Push and wiggle side to side to expand the dirt and allow the post to be drawn and removed

Concepts: Surgical Extraction Goal: Expedite delivery of all tooth structure while maintaining necessary alveolar contour Create a path of withdrawal for the entire tooth or each individual segment of the tooth Consider the shape/ contour of the remaining alveolar bone different goals for implant, removable prosthesis, no prosthesis Conditions Leading to Need for Surgical Extraction Avoid Excessive Force !!! - fractures Dense bone 41

Exostoses, tori Root morphology Multi-rooted teeth Dilacerations Internal resorbtion Age: Dense Bone vs. Ankylosis vs. Atrophic Periodontal Ligament ? Body Build/ Genetic considerations- Race Bruxism Previous Endodontic therapy Deep Caries Adjacent Anatomic Structures: Sinus, IAN proximity Compromised adjacent teeth crown, recurrent caries Multiple extractions Impactions

CONCEPTS SURGICAL EXTRACTION: Removal of a rock from the lawn Push back the sod = expose the tooth by constructing and elevating a full thickness muco-periosteal flap

CONCEPTS Options: Remove a lot of dirt to remove the whole rock, Or Divide the rock into many smaller pieces, Or Remove some dirt and divide the rock into a few large pieces. The initial plan for the approach to the tooth may be an uncomplicated or closed extraction. As the tooth is manipulated and more information as gained, the approach may progress to a surgical approach. The approach to, and delivery of, the tooth is a dynamic process.

Flap Design: Development and Management Design parameters Types of muco-periosteal flaps Technique for developing a muco- periosteal flap 42

Design Parameters BLOOD SUPPLY: Flap base MUST be broader than free margin Allows inflow of arterial blood and outflow of venous blood. Lack of adequate outflow leads to venous congestion and death of the tissue. Nice picture slide #17 Adequate size: Big Flap = Big Surgeon See what you are doing Full thickness- Do NOT tear the flap BE KIND TO THE SOFT TISSUE

Design Parameters Incision over intact bone Avoid injury to vital structures LINGUAL, MENTAL nerves Releasing Incision, if needed, to avoid tearing

Adequate Size: DONT work in a hole Visualization: If you cant see it well, you cant do it well. Patient Position Lighting Suctioning Adequate Exposure of Surgical Site Elevation of flap margins over intact bone Proper Instrumentation Retractors to displace and protect the soft tissue Prevent tearing (sharp incision heals better than a tear) If releasing incision required, extend at least one tooth anterior or/and one tooth posterior flap margin must rest on sound bone

Common Flap Designs Sulcular Incision Envelope Flap No Vertical (Oblique) Releasing Incision Envelope Flap with Releasing Incision Posterior ( Distal ) Oblique Release May be Preferable Cosmetically Release Tissue around the corner of the canine eminence Anterior Vertical (Oblique) Release Incision May Compromise Anterior Aesthetics try to avoid creating flaps around anterior crowns which may expose the finish line and compromise aesthetics Probably Easier to design and work under an anterior release 43

Around the Corner- Canine Eminence

Vertical (Oblique) Release Incision Base is broader than free margin = loose edge of the flap Cross gingival margin at the line angle of the tooth (May include tissue of embrasure to facilitate suturing) Incision over intact bone, but not on an osseous prominence such as the Canine Eminence tiger trap Types of Muco-periosteal Flaps Envelope Sulcular incision in dentate patient Crestal incision in edentulous area Three cornered flap Single vertical (oblique) release Posterior (distal) or Anterior (mesial) release Four cornered flap Anterior and posterior releasing incisions Semi-lunar flap apical to attached gingivae periapical access retrograde endo Y- flap Palatal access for removal of tori Pedicled flap allows repositioning of tissue with its own blood supply closure of oral-antral communication

Developing the Flap Sub-peri-osteal injection of LA - hydraulic force facilitates reflecting the periosteum from the bone Incision Firmly, with scalpel blade contacting bone Blade perpendicular to bone and soft tissue A single stroke not multiple cuts Developing the Flap Reflection lift the periosteum and flap from the bone Comparable to lifting up carpet or sod Sharp end of periosteal elevator between periosteum and bone Elevate along a broad front Retraction protect the soft tissue 44

Surgical Extraction of Single Rooted Tooth Reflect the Flap Determine Extent of bone removal, if any Remove Bone Bur and COPIOUS IRRIGATION Apical purchase of forceps on cementum Irrigate well under depth of flap NO retained debris Elevate Flap and Gain Better Access Without Removing Bone Deliver, Debride, Suture Surgical Extraction of Multi- Rooted Tooth Divide and Conquer Strategy Identify furcation remove bone, if needed Fissure bur (703,701) to section = divide tooth through pulpal floor into furcation Avoid violation of maxillary sinus floor Split tooth: divide root from root with straight elevator Converts multi-rooted tooth into several single rooted pieces Elevate or luxate and deliver root segments Some options for divide and conquer: Molar 2 Premolars Molar Single rooted crown + root Molar Roots 2 Roots Max Molar 3 Roots Fractured Roots Some roots will fracture due to unfavorable curvature, or brittle nature Thorough mobilization of the root prior to fracture facilitates delivery Remove bone to create space into which the root can be elevated Gently engage elevator into PDL space Root Tip Elevators (Pick) Fragile elevators Appearance seems to indicate they would be good lever for prying out root tips Easily damaged: use to wedge root tip from the socket Prying forces will bend or break these instruments! Only use is as a wedge. Push fine tip apically to wedge root tip from socket or wedge tip into PDL and draw in a vertical vector to displace root tip or displace into created space Root Tips:Tease or wiggle !!!Do NOT force apically !!!May displace root into sinus 45

Remove Bone Use bur to remove buccal or inter- radicular bone Create a space into which the root can be elevated or expose adequate tooth structure to engage with the forceps Carefully Elevate the Root Tip! Gently elevate the root If not mobilized, remove more bone NEVER use excessive force !!! May displace the root into sinus, submand space, FOM, or through the buccal plate Apical Window Buccal bone overlying the apex is removed a window is created Crestal, buccal bone is preserved Root tip is elevated from apical area through window or into socket Do NOT violate sinus or IAN Leaving Root Tips ? Indications: Small piece- <4mm Deeply embedded in bone Adjacent to anatomic structures IAN, Sinus, Submandibular/ Sublingual space Absence of pulpal or periapical pathology Root MUST BE IMMOBILE Risk of removal greater than that of retaining Will attempting to recover root make things better or worse? Destroy bone Encroach, damage vital structures Risk of displacement into sinus, submandibular/ sublingual space SHOULD I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO TAKE THIS TOOTH OUT IN THE FIRST PLACE ? WHAT DID I LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE ? Should I have done more surgery or used less force?

Leaving Root Tips? Radiograph to confirm root presence Inform and counsel patient Document in chart Refer as indicated 46

Evaluate at recall appointments Multiple Extractions Treatment planning Sequencing Technique

Multiple Extractions: Treatment Planning Replacing the Tooth you just pulled. Replacement: Implant vs. Bridge Implant: Maintain maximum volume of bone Bridge: Favorable contours for pontic Pre-prosthetic surgery: RPD vs. CD Smooth alveolar contour No prosthesis: May concentrate on delivering tooth expeditiously Multiple Extractions: Sequencing Maxillary first theory Anesthesia obtained first and of shorter duration Debris does not fall into lower ext sites Mandibular first theory Blood from maxilla does not obscure surgical field Harder teeth first- surgeon is not fatigued Multiple Extractions: Sequencing Usually from posterior to anterior Recover all roots from one tooth before proceeding to the next tooth !!!! Dense bone over 1st molar and cuspid May elect to mobilize 1st molar and cuspid initially (loosen), extract adjacent teeth, then extract 1st molar and cuspid Hydraulic forces from sheared PDL may expand alveolus (?) Treatment Plan: Implant ? Preserve Bone height and width If surgical approach, attempt to maintain a 4-walled bony defect to allow osseous fill Consider grafting = socket preservation, if applicable Treatment Planning: RPD or CD? Maintain bone over canine eminences Maintain buccal plate contour Smooth osseous prominences A take away process. Is this as smooth as I can make it ?, Will 47

removing more bone make things worse ? Palpate the alveolar contour through the soft tissue
