A relatively new technique for extraction of teeth is presented. These techniques were developed in response to the desire to remove teeth in an atraumatic fashion, minimizing bone removal, in preparation for placement of dental implants in the anterior “esthetic zone”. Topics to be covered include a description of these instruments used to sever the periodontal ligament and expand the alveolar socket, as well as a tutorial in their use. Two cases will be presented which illustrate the use of these instruments to extract teeth to be replaced by fixed prostheses supported by dental implants.
