Description

The time-honored techniques of exodontia emphasize the use of forceps for most of the work of tooth removal. We are all familiar with the complications of forceps extraction, including fracture of the tooth or adjacent bone, which may then require elevation of a surgical flap and removal of bone to complete the procedure. A new design of exodontia instruments has been introduced that modifies the surgical procedure to minimize trauma to the extraction site. These instruments include periotomes and Proximators™, which loosen the tooth within the alveolus, and apical retention forceps, which grasp the root, to ease it out of the socket. These instruments are demonstrated, and typical cases are illustrated.

Objectives

Objectives
Explain how atraumatic extraction techniques help preserve alveolar bone and soft tissue volume for future prosthetic, esthetic, or implant treatment. List the steps involved in using periotomes and Proximators to disrupt the periodontal ligament attachment of teeth to the socket. Know how and where to use the various tip configurations of periotomes and Proximators. Discuss the properties of the Apical Retention Forceps, and how it differs from a standard extraction forceps. Discuss the differences between traditional exodontia techniques and newer techniques utilizing instruments that directly cut the periodontal ligament attachment of tooth to bone.
