Ankylosed Tooth Extraction Using the Piezotome® CUBE

Once you have watched the complete video course, you will then be redirected to a quiz for CE credits.

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.
