Comparison of the effects of two extraction methods on the alveolar ridge preservation of Maxillary Anterior Teeth
Objective: To compare the effects of high-speed turbodrill root extraction and piezosurgery tooth socket enlargement on the alveolar ridge preservation of maxillary anterior teeth.
Methods: Thirty-six clinically eligible patients admitted to the No.2 Hospital of Baoding or the Baoding First Central Hospital from January 2018 to November 2019 were selected and randomly divided into two groups. Group-A were extracted by high-speed turbodrill root extraction, while Group-B were extracted by piezosurgery tooth socket enlargement. After extraction, GBR bone grafting and soft tissue transplantation were performed on the extraction sockets. The extraction time, integrity rate of labial bone plate of the extraction socket, pain-free rate, satisfaction rate, reduction of the height and width of the alveolar ridge, alveolar bone mineral density score, and new bone contour score of the alveolar bone of two groups were compared.
Results: Group-B was significantly superior to Group-A in terms of tooth extraction time, pain-free rate, satisfaction rate and reduction of alveolar ridge height at three sites on the palatal side, with a statistically significant difference (p<0.05).
Conclusions: Piezosurgery tooth socket enlargement is more worthy of clinical application due to its advantages of less impact on the preservation of the palatal alveolar ridge height of the maxillary anterior teeth, shorter tooth extraction time, postoperative pain-free rate and high final satisfaction rate.
