The Pontic Shield technique
Posted on 06.15.2017 05:20 AM By Howard Gluckman In Anterior/Esthetic
The Pontic shield is an alternative to the Root Submergence Technique ONLY when one has apical pathology, A necrotic pulp, A sclerosed pulp, a hyperemic pulp. This animation allows one to see step by step how to perform the pontic shield technique. If one is going to use the Glocker Technique and place an implant later it can be done in the same way.

Love the concept Howard. I have the same idea: PS can be done combined with apicoectomy. RST is not indicated in periapical pathology.

personally i have only had 2 in the very beginning but thereafter nothing. Since we have refined the technique we are doing better

Pontic shield is a good alternative to RST, I agree. It`s more work, but performing PS we are on the safe site for roots with pathology or with a potential to develop pathology.
