PET upper first molar: possibility of maintaining the palatal root.
This is a case presentation where several thoughts were combined and technique we shared on Dentalxp.
First upper molar roots were split and initial Versah drill was used to define initial drilling path and depth.
PET was performed on the three roots, including palatal, and Versah drill provided fast and reliable ‘osseodensification’ and a crestal sinus augmentation of 3mm.
As first experience on Versah I decided to use a speed of 800 and all steps with minimum diameter in a diagonal fashion(from VT1525 to VS42248). Last drill was the one of implant kit to check the fit.
Pet can be challenging and time consuming on molar approach and I found Versah drill to be very useful on this peculiar clinical situation reducing time and making sinus lift sufficiently easy for the operator and comfortable for the patient.
A 5x11.5 implant was positioned and a granular bone substitute was used to fill spaces and PRF membrane on top.
I will sent some follow up of the case.
Any thoughts about it?
