Awaiting for the densah drill.
The possibility of combining multiple technique and knowledge may enable several mininvasive procedure .
The patient needed to extract tooth #16 and implant position required a bone condensing procedure that has been performed ‘manually’ with bone expanders.
This procedure is ,IMO, time consuming and there’s a lot of patient discomfort receiving many hits and vibration: I must assume that the densah drill could be an invaluable tool in a situation like this.
So I’ll be looking forward to use them.
And I want to share a thought about the PET solution: look at the ‘stormy’ palatal and central area of the alveolus and do compare that with vestibular intact area: PET acting as a shield that provides isolation on both sides with no removal nor replacement of any tissue or material, being itself a gold standard as material and structure.
We historically considered the tooth root a ‘foreign body’ but it might be time for a paradigm change.
