CE: A Biologic Perspective on the Use of Partial Extraction Therapy in Implant Dentistry
Edward D. Karateew, DDS; Rodrigo Neiva, DDS, MS; Snjezana Pohl, DDS, PhD; Richard Martin, DDS; and Howard Gluckman, BDS, MChD, PhD
This article explains how PET in implant dentistry has been developed and refined in an effort to overcome alternate procedural limitations. Integral to this technique is the purposeful retention and shaping of a portion of the root of the extracted tooth. While it is generally understood that the PET procedure has a positive effect on the retention of hard- and soft-tissue volume with minimal complications, clinicians should have a biologic understanding of why favorable results are able to be achieved with this technique.

When Guided Surgery Fails: A Routine to Recover the Implant Original Treatment Plan
Robert J. Stanley, DDS, PhD, MS
This article discusses a surgical contingency strategy for recovering the original implant placement treatment plan in the event of an implant failure, without the added time, expense, or inconvenience involved in redeveloping the implant placement surgical guide. A case is presented to document the protocol for this routine.
