Partial Root Extraction Therapy (PET): A Tactic to Rescue the Buccal Plate

Wed. December 01, 2021 7:00 PM
Location: Zoom Webinars
Website: Visit

Presented by Nader Hamdan, BDS, MSc, MDent, FRCD(C)

Bone loss around extraction sites is due to the destruction of the periodontal ligament to the bone complex. This is problematic in aesthetic areas, specifically the anterior maxilla. Many procedures and materials have been used to regain or cover lost bone structure (such as bone and gingival grafts). These can be costly and time-consuming to patients. Research has shown great potential in partial extraction therapies (PET) where part of the natural tooth root is purposely left attached to the buccal plate of bone to prevent its loss. These therapies are more conservative than normal extractions and require no additional materials. This presentation aims at shedding more light on this technique as well as its contraindications and limitations.
