This video shows the use of the Piezotome CUBE to facilitate removal of an ankylosed tooth root in the mandible. Atraumatic extraction of even the most difficult tooth can be performed if the right instruments are used. Traditionally, a surgical handpiece and bur would be used to separate an ankylosed root from the alveolar bone. But new technology allows the use of ultrasonic instruments to sever the periodontal ligament and widen the space between the root and bone without the risk of overheating or removing excess bone. The use of the Piezotome CUBE and Proximators is demonstrated by Dr. Reznick in this course. Duration 09:48.

To be successful in surgery, you need to be able to anticipate potential problems. Ankylosed teeth will be encountered frequently, especially with endodontically-treated molars in older patients. Surgical removal can be a challenge, and knowing what to do when this is the situation is essential to good patient care and to minimizing stress in practice. This video shows what factors may be associated with ankylosis and a strategy to successful surgery. Run time 11:29.

One of the biggest mistakes a clinician can make is to "think" that they can successfully perform a surgical procedure. It is essential to KNOW that you can do it before you pick up the first instrument. This video discusses a case where the doctor had no plan, did not know how to handle a broken root tip, and after an hour of struggling, finally sent the patient to Dr. Reznick to complete the surgery. The basic principles of how to handle a broken root on a mandibular molar are discussed. Run Time - 14:06.
- 21:31 Published: 09/13/2016
This is a straightforward case of four partial bony third molars. Patient examination, radiographic evaluation and surgical strategy are all discussed. Duration- 21:31
- 14:35 Published: 08/30/2016
It is not uncommon to need to remove multiple adjacent teeth in a patient. Traditional surgical technique emphasizes trimming of the marginal gingiva, including the interdental papillae in order to facilitate primary closure of tissue over the surgical site. This technique has been around long before tooth replacement with dental implants was the standard of care. Unfortunately, this removes a significant amount of ketatinized gingiva, which is undesirable if implants are planned. Keratinized gingiva is also beneficial for supporting a removable prosthesis. This video shows a technique which preserves most all of the keratinized tissue following multiple tooth extractions and alveloloplasty. Run time- 14:35
- 10:21 Published: 06/30/2016

The anterior esthetic zone presents unique challenges to the implant surgeon. In this region, perfect implant placement is critical to get a good esthetic and functional result. The extraction-immediate implant case is especially complicated, since it is easy for the implant to become redirected during drilling and/or placement, even in the hands of an experienced surgeon. 3D imaging and CBCT-Guided implant surgery makes this process more accurate and predictable. It also allows for a custom provisional restoration to be made, which can be delivered at surgery, with minimal adjustment. The software and workflow of GALILEOS CBCT facilitate this treatment, as the software is very intuitive and the surgical guides allow deliver accuracy. This case demonstrates how GALILEOS Guided surgery made removal of tooth #8 and placement of an immediate implant a predictable and successful procedure. Run Time- 18:49

- 11:42 Published: 12/14/2014
An important component of surgical training is understanding what needs to b done to complete a procedure if a tooth does not come out as easily as expected. When the crown breaks off with the forceps, a non-surgical extraction becomes a surgical one and the approach and instruments must change. This video shows a technique of maxillary molar root removal after the crown has fractured off. It also shows what to do when the roots project into the maxillary sinus and removal perforates the sinus membrane. Run time- 11:42
- 12:41 Published: 12/10/2014

Pre-op and post-op regimen and decision regarding immediate implant placement are also discussed. Run time 12:41.
- 8:23 Published: 06/12/2014
Surgical extraction of a multi-rooted tooth may be complicated by the fact that the roots go in different directions. When this is the case, especially when there is no clinical crown, it is necessary to section between the roots and remove them individually. The technique for doing this is discussed in this video, along with other topics of case management. Duration - 8:23.
- 25:02 Published: 01/21/2014
One of the basic fundamentals taught by Dr. Reznick is proper pre-surgical evaluation of the patient and the procedure to be performed. For the removal of a tooth, following the Standard of Care regarding pre-operative radiographs is essential to plan the surgical approach and to minimize the risk of complications. When this is not done, not only will the procedure be more difficult, but the risk of untoward events and litigation are significantly increased. In this case, a dentist failed to properly evaluate the clinical situation before attempting surgery and the patient ended up in Dr. Reznick's office for management of a failed surgical attempt. Run Time- 25:02 (HD)
- 17:05 Published: 09/14/2013
An infected maxillary molar can encroach upon the maxillary sinus and create an oral-antral fistula when extracted. Large defects will not close on their own. When this complication is anticipated, surgery is planned to close the defect primarily. This video demonstrates a technique to do just that. Run time- 17:05
- 13:17 Published: 09/14/2013
