Ankylosed Tooth Extraction Using the Piezotome® CUBE
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.
